    19 millions of euros? It's not possible, it's too cheap for this ranch.

    I said this today on Twitter

    MJ Estate is going through probate. They cannot sell anything without asking the judge for an approval - (remember when they asked and then cancelled their request to sell Hayvenhurst?).

    Therefore I'm thinking it's safe to assume that Estate's share at Neverland has not been sold.

    Colony Capital is hard to say.

    I'll have a look, I can understand German.

    EDIT:
    It starts with that Michael Jackson's famous Neverland now has a German owner. They mention the guy's name and that he bought it for 19 million euro and is now renovating it or is going to (not sure which one it was that they said). The guy says he wants to restore it to as it was and build a memorial and museum there. And then the lady says and a fun park, circus and open concert place. And in one year it will be opened.

    This can't be true right???

    Moderator "Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch now has a new owner: Wolfgang Hammerschmidt, who has had stars like Guns n Roses under concert contract. He bought MJs estate in LA for 19million €. Right now he is renovating it."

    Wolfgang H: "We are considering old photos and description of the crew that used to work there. A memorial is gonna be built and a museum."

    Moderator: "The amusement park and the circus and an open air concert plance will be there, too. It is supposed to be opened in 1 year."

    Probably colony capital sold % in their possession?
    “I had good luck,” Liza says, comparing her life to the late King of Pop. “I had good friends. I had great parents, and I did not have people using me every second of my life. … I did not have people looking at me as a commodity without somebody else there to say, ‘Don’t treat her like that.”

    Liza said of her friend Michael, “Think about it, that kid did more good for people than anybody will ever know, and all of his friends know it.”

    Thanks for the translation. I forwarded it to the MJ Estate Online Team. Let's wait to see what they'll say.

    As I said , if you remember when they wanted to buy a new house for Katherine and perhaps sell Hayvenhurst, Estate had gone to the court for judge's approval as they were under probate. I would think that any similar sale of Neverland would have required a similar approval process. And we haven't seen anything like that.

    It's relatively hard to say what Colony Capital might be doing or whether this might be a business deal to open Neverland tours and so on. Like I said I forwarded the information - video & translation of the video - to MJ Estate Online Team. We will wait to see what they say.

    It cannot be true as if the estate couldn't make museum for Michael in Neverland due to roads, and locals were against any kind of attractions built there (+other reasons), how come this man is planning museum, fun park, circus, open air concert place?

    If The Estate doesn't confirm it, I don't believe it and also The Estate poses most of the property, right?

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1192656/filmogenre

    It looks like at one time he produced some films in the 1980's.

    Although, between the taxes and the locals needing to approve a different zoning, I'm not sure this fellow will have enough capital to open "Neverland" as an amusement park or visitor place.
    Michael is really great! He has no snobbery to him, he's just a good kid. Michael is a gentle spirit and he takes over our kids. He loves kid's, we watch a lot of cartoons together. - Linda McCartney being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhZPy0ZeuvI
