Michael Jackson is getting paid a massive £5 million to simply show his face at the birthday party of a Prince.

A host of A-list stars are being paid to attend what is likely to be the showbiz party of the year, as HRH Prince Azim of Brunei celebrates his 25th birthday in England this weekend.

Jackson, who hasn't performed since he warbled a few lines at the World Music Awards last year, flew in from LA yesterday for the event.

However, the moon-walking star won't be getting up and singing at the event, the £5 million price tag is simply for the star's presence at the party.

A source told the Mirror: "Even though Michael won't be performing, the very fact that he'll be in this stately home mingling with all of the Prince's pals makes it worth every penny to Azim."

The bash is set to be held at a plush English mansion at a cost of millions, although the prince is the son of the Sultan of Brunei - one of the world's richest men.

Other VIP guests included Jerry Hall, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Pamela Anderson, while Barbra Streisand is also being tempted over from the US.
