(NEW YORK) — Neverland Ranch was once owned by an eccentric pop star, Michael Jackson. Could it soon be owned by another eccentric pop star?
Britain’s The Sun is claiming that Lady Gaga wants to purchase a share of the California ranch. A source says, “Lady Gaga is obsessed with Michael. She’s become good friends with his sister La Toya and would love more than anything else to restore Neverland to its original state.”
The source adds that Gaga would “love to help with the financial costs” of the ranch should it remain with the Jackson family long-term.
Neverland is currently owned by Jackson’s estate as well as Colony Capital, which saved the property from foreclosure in 2008, the year before the King of Pop died.
Michael left Neverland in 2005.
