Michael Jackson's Neverland To Become State Park?
Apparently, the late singer's former home could be open to the public...
Michael Jackson's former home may be turned into a state park - meaning fans of the King of Pop may get to visit the Neverland Ranch after all.
The late singer moved out of the estate, situated in Santa Barbara, in 2005 - after police raided the home for evidence following his 2003 arrest for child molestation charges.
Jacko's Neverland Ranch, which is co-owned by private equity firm Colony Capital with the Jackson family, could now be an official state park after plans emerging to publicise the land have surfaced.
Despite residents living near Jacko's former home protesting against the plans to make Neverland a tourists attraction, if the proposal is given the all clear fans of the You Are Not Alone singer will be free to visit the site.
California assemblyman, Mike Davis, told Associated Press: "Given that we have an economic shortfall... I suspect it would be difficult for the State Parks Department to purchase the property alone... I am committed to finding out all details possible to make this a good proposal".
Meanwhile, as we reported yesterday, Michael Jackson's final resting place at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park has been vandalised by fans, leaving growing concerns over the security over the King of Pop's tomb.
