Michael Jackson returned several antiques to settle a lawsuit with a gallery that accused him of not paying part of a nearly $380,000 bill, attorneys said yesterday (Oct. 24).

Kamad Enterprise, which owns Mayfair Gallery in Los Angeles, claimed Jackson still owed $128,875 toward $378,875 worth of merchandise he purchased in May, according to Saul Reiss, an attorney for the company.

Jackson agreed to return items that included a Chinese chest, a mirror, clocks and a barometer from that sale and a past sale, Reiss said.

Jackson's attorney, Brent Ayscough, confirmed the settlement and said Jackson did not pay the company any money to settle the case. He said he did not know the exact dollar value of the returned items but that it was "in the neighborhood" of the disputed amount.

Mayfair Gallery sells mostly 19th-century European furniture.
