Evidently Michael Jackson's finances are in a very parlous state, as it seems that he has not been paying staff insurance or indeed the staff who work at his now abandoned Neverland.
As a result of this foolish lapse, California officials have fined Jackson $170K and ordered employees at the Neverland to stop working.
The California Department of Industrial Relations issued a "stop order" on Neverland. This prohibits employees from going back to work until workers' compensation coverage is restored. It fined Jackson $69K for the lapse.
The agency also demanded that Jackson pay his staff at least $306K in back wages, by next week, and fined him $100K for failing to pay wages.
If Jackson fails to meet these demands, the agency "will pursue appropriate legal action".
It is reported that the agency is investigating 47 complaints from employees about unpaid wages.
Jackson will find that running away to Bahrain solves nothing, it is immature and foolish to pretend that problems will go simply go away.
