Attorney Bankim Thanki says the two sides have come to a confidential agreement that they will sign soon.

Al Khalifa had claimed the singer pulled out of a planned a series of collaborations. The sheik sued Jackson and was seeking the return of $7 million he said he had given the pop star.

Neither Jackson nor the sheik attended Monday's brief High Court hearing in London.
