Singer asks pop svengali for help

Michael Jackson has reportedly turned to music mogul Simon Fuller in a bid to turn around his flagging career.

Jacko is said to have been speaking to the 19 Entertainment boss on the phone on a daily basis and the former Spice Girls manager has jetted out to Los Angeles to see him.

The 48-year-old singer is desperate to recapture the success he had in the 80s.

Last year his performance at the World Music Awards flopped and he only managed one verse and chorus of We Are The World.

A source tells the Sun: ‘Michael is determined to be a global phenomenon again.

‘He knows it won’t be easy because he comes with so much baggage, but he thinks if anyone can pull it off Simon can.

‘Simon is excited by the challenge. It’s like nothing he has tackled before.’
