Martin Bashir, the journalist who fronted the infamous 2003 documentary about Michael Jackson, now faces the possibility of a lawsuit from Michael Jackson.

Jackson began legal moves against Bashir and Granada, which made the documentary, in 2003 claiming breach of confidence.

It was claimed that Bashir broke a promise to allow Jackson to vet the programme before it was broadcast.

Jackson also said Bashir reneged on an agreement not to film his children without the masks they wear in public. A High Court action was due to start in late 2003, but was halted after Jackson was arrested and charged with child abuse.
