Michael Jackson’s collection of statues from his Neverland ranch are back up for sale

A collection of statues at Michael Jackson‘s Neverland Ranch in California that had previously been showcased at his Neverland Ranch have been put up for sale after a previous attempt to sell the lot as one unit fell through.

The collection of 28 statues has previously been as a single lot with a price tag of $2.8 million, but they are now being sold separately, with most of the statues priced in the five-figure range.

Among the bronze statues several depict children, including one particular artwork entitled ‘Kids and Tree Swing’ priced at $150,000.

Another piece is called ‘Follow the Leader’, also priced at $150,000.

The works of art were originally put up for sale in April 2021 by Dubai firm Noble Art Lovers.

Although some affluent potential buyers expressed an interest, no transactions were finalized. The statues hit the market after the death of the ‘King of Pop,’ who died in 2009.

The company hopes that with the items now for sale on an individual basis, more people might be interested in owning a piece of the infamous Neverland Ranch.

The Ranch served as Jackson’s home until his death. The music icon was widely praised for his music but had just as much attention for his controversies and legal troubles.

Jackson was accused of child abuse several times throughout his life with the allegations continuing to be a subject of controversy.

In 1993, he faced accusations of child molestation, but no criminal charges were filed, and the case was settled out of court.

Those allegations were once again brought to light in a 2019 four-hour HBO documentary, during which Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who met the singer in 1986 when he was only 10 years old, offered explicit details about the years-long abuse they say they suffered at the hands of Jackson.

The duo claimed the singer would allegedly gain favor with the boys’ families by arranging for them to travel with him.

They said they were molested by the singer in his expansive ranch — and at one point, the King of Pop even staged a mock wedding complete with vows and a diamond ring with Safechuck.

Police later arrested Jackson on child molestation charges on November 20, 2003, after he was indicted on 10 criminal counts, including child molestation, abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.

Once the trial was over, Jackson – who had been facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted – left the country, moving to the island nation of Bahrain, located in the Persian Sea.

He eventually returned to the United States and had been preparing for his comeback tour in 2009 when he was found unresponsive inside his Holmby Hills home at the age of 50.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and were unable to revive the singer, who they declared dead while still at his residence.

The cause of death was later ruled to be acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication caused by drugs that were being prescribed to him by Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for the singer’s death.

He was released in November 2013 after serving roughly half of his four-year sentence.
