Now You Can Live Where Michael Jackson Died

michael jacksonThe thought of living in a house where someone died has always creeped me out a bit, but whoever winds up buying the luxurious L.A. mansion where Michael Jackson passed away is just going to have to get over the fact that he took his last breaths in the master suite. And since the home has six other bedrooms to choose from, the new owner won't even have to sleep in there if he doesn't want to.

The property is listed at $23.9 million, and it's already generating some high profile interest. British pop star Robbie Williams took a tour of the home -- but will he become its next owner?


If Williams does wind up purchasing the pad, it does seem kind of fitting for a musician to be the person to move in. It kind of pays tribute to Michael in some strange way. And I'm sure the King of Pop would be happy knowing that a music lover was inhabiting his house.

Whoever winds up buying Jackson's former digs will have a lot of room to stretch out in. The mansion has 17,000 square feet and sits on 1.26 acres of land. Some of the home's desirable amenities include an elevator, a gym & spa, a movie theater, 12 fireplaces, 13 bathrooms, and of course, a swimming pool (this is California).

And if things get a bit too cramped when the relatives come to visit, there's also a guest house out back. That's probably where I'd wind up camping out. The superstitious side of me would never be able to sleep in a home where a regular person had met his death, let alone a huge celebrity like Michael Jackson. But maybe if I had enough cash to afford such a fancy place, I wouldn't worry as much about what sort of energy may be trapped inside the walls. You can pay somebody to get rid of ghosts if they show up, right?

Would knowing someone died in a home stop you from buying it?
