Jackson Calls On Farrakhan's Designer

Troubled pop star MICHAEL JACKSON has hired controversial religious leader LOUIS FARRAKHAN's personal designer to make custom made outfits for every day of his child molestation trial.

The BILLIE JEAN star - who has been surrounded by advisers from Farrakhan's THE NATION OF ISLAM sect in the build up to his high-profile trial - is such a fan of the leader's style, he's hired WILLIE SCOTT to provide his court clothes.

Scott says, "Michael always complimented Farrakhan on his clothes and (his son) JOSH FARRAKHAN told him to get in touch with me right away."

Scott, who also designs outfits for pop veteran PRINCE, was given just three days to create the attire worn by Jackson at his first court date on 16 January (04), but still managed to stitch together "something conservative with some flair".

Jackson, 45, faces seven counts of lewd acts on a child under the age of 14, and two counts of purposefully intoxicating the boy with alcohol in order to molest him at his Neverland Ranch near Santa Barbara, California.
