A secret novel penned by the ‘King of Pop´ Michael Jackson has reportedly led to a bidding battle between New York publishers for the printing rights.

It is not known when the ‘Thriller´ hitmaker put pen to paper and wrote the fictional account of a rock star’s struggles with money and fame at the height of his success, Essence.com reported.

“The untitled book mirrors Jackson’s own rise to superstardom and self-imposed seclusion,” a source told the website.

Insiders claim that the pop icon conceptualised the plot and characters and then worked with a collaborator on the story and accompanying illustrations.

Jackson, who died of drug overdose on June 25, was laid to rest in peace at the Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Memorial Park earlier this month.
