Robbie Williams ‘may buy mansion where Michael Jackson died’

Posted: March 28, 2012 in Celebrity News

Pop star Robbie Williams has been on a tour of the rented mansion where Michael Jackson died from a drug overdose amid suggestions he is considering buying the property.

The sprawling mansion with 17,200 square feet of grounds is in the exclusive Los Angeles suburb of Holmby Hills, Bel Air, and comes with a $23.9 million (£15 million) price tag.

Jackson moved into the property with his three children after he leased out his Neverland Ranch in 2008. He died six months later at the age of 50 having overdosed on the painkiller Propofol.

Williams has long been a fan of Jackson’s music, but it is the mansion’s enviable facilities which are thought to have attracted him to the house.

It has seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, a swimming pool and an indoor, vintage cinema.

The house is owned by retailer Hubert Guez, who is chief executive of a popular chain of clothes shops called Ed Hardy, and was on the market three years ago for $38 million (£24 million).

Before putting it back up for sale, Mr Guez had hoped to rent it out again, but had no takers for the $300,000 (£188,000) a month asking price.

Williams already owns a $10 million (£6.3 million) home in LA, adding to it by buying a neighbour’s grounds in order to build his own full-sized football pitch.
