Michael Jackson’s Pre-Death Housing Negotiations

While King of Pop, Michael Jackson’s, body is finally resting at the Forest Lawn cemetery in California, information surrounding his flamboyant and larger than life existence remains front and center of many news reports.

Known for his musical talent, charitable character and headline-grabbing antics, Jackson is also infamously remembered for his love of extravagant real estate. According to new reports, just prior to his untimely death, Jackson was allegedly in negotiations to buy another opulent home in Los Angeles.

Known to many as “Tar Estate” or “Tar Mahal” in reference to its current owner, Yousuf Tar, the home sits on 2.4 acres in the Bel-Air area of Los Angeles and is currently listed on the market for $37,995,000. The extremely vast estate features 20,000 square feet of lavish interior space, 15 bedrooms, 16 and a half bathrooms, a two-story guest house that overlooks a swimming pool complex, a spa, a fitness center, a 20-car garage, a dining room large enough for 50 guests, five fireplaces, a cigar and wine tasting room, and a vast master suite with three wall-mounted televisions and two large marble bathrooms that include gold swam faucets.

While Jackson’s financial troubles stopped him from purchasing the home back in 2001 when he originally became interested in it, recent reports are indicating that Jackson planned to use some of the funding he was anticipated to acquire through his This Is It tour, scheduled for just weeks after to his death, to purchase the home. There are no current reports as to who may be next in line to buy the home instead of Jackson, but considering who was previously interested, it’s assumed it won’t be your average Joe.
