As the King of Pop’s former home has gone on sale, it is said something strange is in the neighbourhood.
Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch is up for sale – but potential buyers are reportedly being warned off from beyond the grave.
It is said viewers of the mansion and 2,700 acre estate – which he bought in 1987 and lived in for more than 15 years – have been put off by a ghostly presence which many believe that it is Michael Jackson’s ghost.
According to the Daily Star, an estate agent source said: “Local people say Jackson’s spirit has been haunting his estate since he died.
“Investors and visitors considering buying the property are warned that workers on the ranch have claimed the King of Pop haunts the premises.”
It seems there’s something strange in MJ’s old neighbourhood – and not just the £65 million price tag.
It was revealed earlier this week the estate – which includes six bedrooms, a 50 seat cinema and two lakes – has gone on sale.
However, the amusement park rides it was once famous for have now gone, as have the orangutans and an elephant that used to live there with the eccentric singer.
Last year, four photographers found their way into the then-abandoned estate and snapped the grounds as it was.
Three of them anonymously spoke to Vice.com following the adventure, but denied being scared by the mood of the place.
One said: “I remember that vividly, actually. I didn’t find anything that creepy about the whole thing.
“I found it really odd and different, but I wasn’t scared at any moment. I think none of us were really scared. Mostly we felt like we shouldn’t be invading the privacy of someone else.”
