King of pop Michael Jackson has reportedly put his personal life on hold as he prepares to make a triumphant return to the pop charts.
The Thriller hitmaker has allegedly banned his three children, Prince Michael, Prince Michael II and Paris, from his Las Vegas studio, where he is busy recording tracks for his highly-anticipated new album.
Jackson has also reportedly put his rumoured romance with his children's nanny, Grace Rwaramba, on hiatus, in order to fully focus on the LP - which has been in production since March 2006.
A source tells the New York Post's gossip column PageSix, "Michael is producing the album himself and has banned his kids from the recording studio. He realises this is very important and doesn't want any distractions.
"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."
