The childhood star is having his 2,900 acre former home auctioned off on the 19th of March outside the Santa Barabara County Courthouse, assuming he doesn’t pay off his debts of $25 million in the meantime. So if you’re in the area, why not pop along and place a bid! Goodness knows how much it will go for, estimates for how much it was bought for in ‘87 range from $15 million to $30 million. Oh, and the upkeep at it’s peak was a princely $4 million per year!
The property/amusement park was once Michael’s pride and joy, but as he’s so keen to turn down work (he turned his ‘nose’ up at a $30 million dollar string of London concerts) he obviously isn’t too sad to see it go.
It’s actually my birthday on the day of the auction, but I don’t think Neverland is quite on my wishlist.
