Melbourne, Apr 26 : Michael Jackson is back in the studio and is working on his new album with RedOne and Akon, it has been claimed.
The fallen superstar is said to be so determined about his comeback that he has even banned his kids from the studio to avoid any distractions.
Reports suggest that the 'Thriller' star has roped in top producers RedOne and Akon to mastermind the new record.
According to Showbizspy.com, the 49-year-old star will be working with the duo at the Palms recording studio in Las Vegas.
"Michael is producing the album himself and then will sell it to a record company when he's finished," the Daily Telegraph quoted a source, as telling the New York Post.
In fact, to stay away from any distraction while on work, Jacko has banned his kids from coming to the studio.
"Michael has banned his kids from the recording studio. He realises this is very important and doesn't want any distractions," said the source.
Allegedly linked to his kids' nanny, the singer doesn't seem to have any time for romance as well.
"He's not going to be involved in any personal relationships with women until he gets this record done. He's dumped the nanny - she's not around any more," said the source.
