London, August 18: The U.S. government is involved in a legal battle to retain Michael Jackson’s gem-encrusted glove seized from the hands of an African dictator’s son.
According to the US, the King of Pop’s glove was bought with dirty money by Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo’s son Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, Sky News reported.
Obiang Jr, 42, who first moved to America in 1991, is alleged to have laundered stolen public funds in banks across the globe.
The latest hearing in the 28-month-old case will be heard in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday.
The aspiring rap music mogul bought a number of items from Jackson’s estate, including the glove. (ANI)
