Michael Jackson’s Final Home to Be Sold
When Michael Jackson passed away unexpectedly from cardiac arrest in June 2009, he was renting a seven-bedroom abode in Los Angeles at the time. Now, the owners of the French Chateau-style home where Jackson spent his last waking moments are putting the establishment up for sale with a whopping price tag of $28.9 million.
Jackson had been renting the home, situated in the wealthy Holmby Hills, to rehearse for his farewell concert series in London. The house, which sits on 17,000 square feet of property, includes 12 fireplaces, 13 bathrooms, a guesthouse, a pool, a theater, a gym, a wine cellar and an elevator. The listing on The Real Estalker states that the property belongs to Herbert Guez, the chief executive for Ed Hardy clothing.
The home comes with baggage, as Jackson's death in the establishment could ward off investors. But according to TMZ, it might be difficult for those who are interested in purchasing the listing to even see the place, as potential buyers must submit themselves to an "extensive pre-qualifying check" before even getting a tour of the place.
Jackson, who died at 50 years old on June 25, 2009, was found unresponsive and suffering from a heart attack in the home before dying at the hospital. Testing determined that the King of Pop died from an overdose of prescription drugs and Propofol supplied by his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray. Murray is currently awaiting trial for involuntary manslaughter in California.
