The fate of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, for which his estate holds only a smaller percentage of ownership (Jackson sold off a large portion of the rights for $35 million in 2008), may be determined by the late singer’s children.
According to the UK Mail, Prince Michael, 13, and Paris, 12, are said to want to turn the ranch into a shrine to their dad after having made a secret pilgrimage there last summer. Staying true to Jackson’s love for animals, the pair are also reportedly in agreement that when they are old enough the property would feature ‘some kind of community park and center for animals’.
Sounds like a great use for the space — especially considering it encompasses more than 2,800 acres. With generous funding from the Jackson estate, there’s no doubt that it could become one of the great animal sanctuaries in the U.S.
What do you think of the idea?
