    And you can't really escape the pain because when you go outside you would see him with that big fat cow in the blue suit talking up his fate, and the clock. And then if you go to the train you'd remember that ****ing stupid doofus that not so long ago claimed bullshit. You'd have to have nerves of steel to go back to neverland.

    Good. Waste of money for the the estate or even the family to keep. They don't need all that space to house some sort of museum. Better put in a more accessible place.
    And if we're being realistic, that wouldn't be happening anytime soon anyway. Especially if you're envisioning some sort of Elvis-Graceland type of place.

    He wouldn't want his safe space to be open to visitors anyway. The concerned neighbors are right to not want a constant sea of traffic in their otherwise quiet area.

    I just feel immense pain n conflict even thinking about it. Could you honestly walk around that mo'ther****er er and be happy "oh here's where he had the Oprah interview! And that over that's the candy machine! " knowing what happened to him in that house. You'd know what I'd be thinking I'd always be thinking how he would stream live from neverland pleading his innocence with the public. How they got him in the corner n photographed him. And the bathroom with the gold toliet seat and the bed room s - they Turned that mo foker upside down ransacked, completely stripped him of all his privacy. And the fair ground the zoo... How they even riped that little piece of happiness away. Hell I'd love to build a shack just to get away from all the social media era right now. it feels not right thinking I could go look at a "neverland museum and I swear m would hate the possibility.. It'll be like John merrick all over again because you will always get one schmuck" Where's the oxygen tank then."
    Not me I wouldn't want any part of that circus. Someone prove me wrong but it really doesn't feel right.!
    Edit - glad it might be a fake account

    Maybe for the fans who didn't go through that pain with Michael, maybe they think different. but I'm one of those fans who would never go back because I went through that pain twice Aug 1993 sep 2003 . .
    Edit - trigger I'm sorry it's painful isn't it..

    Nothing painful happened at paisley Park darling did it.? Neverland is the most meanest most mental torture to talk about to an mj fan. Don't it trigger some of you? You don't see m driving through those gates after another glorious day at Santa Maria courthouse??? . Prince never got his home turned upside down. He didn't get publicly shamed or defamed. He wasn't photographed naked in the corner of his four walls. He wasn't made to go on telly pleading innocence. Elvis too... They didn't suffer the public pain that Michael was made to go through did they. So their houses or places of dwellings they are pretty. Happy memories right? I say this with all respect to you I do, but they made m hate neverland he never went back and we as fans, ill take the stand. Cos I feel that passionate about it - I know m wouldn't agree. we should never go back there too.

    Default Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch Sells To Billionaire Ron Burkle

    Billionaire businessman Ron Burkle is the new owner of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara County.

    Burkle, a one-time associate of Jackson and co-founder of the Yucaipa Companies investment firm purchased the 2,700-acre property in Los Olivos, near Santa Barbara for $22 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    First listed in 2016 for $100 million, the property dropped to $67 million a year later, and was down to $31 million last year. Jackson originally paid about $19.5 million for the ranch in 1987.

    Named for the fantasy world in J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, the property includes about 22 structures, including a 12,000-square-foot Normandy-style mansion. There are also several guesthouses, a swimming pool with a cabana, a basketball court, a tennis court and a 50-seat movie theater. Other features on the ranch are a “Disney-style” train station, a fire house and barn.

    A spokesman for Burkle tells WSJ that Burkle views the property as a land banking opportunity. The spokesman told the publication Burkle had been considering Zaca Lake, which adjoins the ranch, for a new retreat location for Soho House, the private club company he co-owns, but ultimately decided the location was too remote. He saw Jackson’s former ranch from the air and put in an offer to buy it. It had been taken off the market and was not publicly listed at the time.

    Burkle advised Jackson on business matters in the mid 2000s. The pop star died in 2009.

    I believe the Estate is still considering making the Hayvenhurst property into a museum at some point in the future, once it exits probate. That is a much better option for a museum than the Neverland Ranch ever was.
