Michael Jackson has yet to agree to an exclusive post-trial interview, despite reports a weekly magazine is to pay him $2 million to talk. The singer has not been seen in public since he was acquitted of child molestation charges in June.

While Jackson was reported to have agreed to speak to the US edition of OK! magazine about his two years of torment since his arrest, it now emerges the interview is yet to be finalized. An insider tells website PageSix.com, "He won't sign until he gets the money and OK! won't give him the money until he signs. We thought it was a done deal, but at the last minute there were problems."
