LATEST: Property tycoon Donald Trump is laughing off press reports that he wants to sign Michael Jackson to a run of concerts in Las Vegas - because he knows such a deal would be a huge headache.

The multi-millionaire reportedly offered Jackson the chance to become the resident performer at his New Frontier Hotel and Casino, if the renowned singer is acquitted in his ongoing child molestation trial.

But Trump insists he wouldn't be tempted to make the deal even if Jackson was a free man.

He says, "It's an interesting idea, but I don't think he'd show up half the time. I can't imagine what the insurance policy would be like."
