43rd Week 2005 / Neverland, named for the home of Michael Jackson -- what's to become of it? Where will Neverland's Ferris wheel, water-pistol range, bumper cars and classic rides like the merry-go-round and zoo animals and Peter Pan, the favorite character of Jackson's. state fairs, be moved to?
Jackson's attorney, Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr. said on Thursday, October 20, 2005, that the pop singer has made the Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain, located in the Persian Gulf, -- his permanent home.
Mesereau declined to comment on local speculation that Jackson planned to sell Neverland ranch, but said the singer is very happy in his new home.
"He's looking much better. He's with his children, and he's moving on in life," Mesereau said. "He's living permanently in Bahrain. He has friends there who have been very loyal and helpful to him in a difficult period of his life."
Mesereau spent four months earlier this year in a Santa Maria courtroom defending Jackson, before a jury acquitted him in June of charges that included sexually abusing a young recovering cancer patient.
Within weeks, after the trial, the singer traveled to Bahrain, where he has been a guest of the royal family. He has been a houseguest of Sheik Salman ibn Hamed Khalifa, the crown prince of Bahrain, staying in a palace in the desert kingdom. The singer's brother, Jermaine Jackson, reportedly has close ties with Bahrain's royal circle, earlier this year announcing plans to unveil a charity theme song written by a son of the nation's king.
Mesereau said he saw Jackson a few weeks ago, October 2005, in London, where the singer was working on a charity single to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
"He looks really well," Mesereau said of the singer, whose already slight frame became even more brittle-looking during his trial.
Back in the U.S., Jackson's departure from the Santa Ynez Valley in California, some say they have missed his largesse, but others are glad to see the crowds, the media and the weirdness go.
"He's definitely going to be missed, no question about it. He's a beautiful man," said Felicia Cody, a gallery owner in Los Olivos. "He's an artist, and he understands the life of an artist." said she will miss the entertainer coming in to buy art, and his friendship.
Terri Stricklan, manager of the Hitching Post, a steakhouse that was frequented by Mesereau and Sneddon as well as media and trial witnesses, said she wouldn't be sorry to see the singer go.
Dorothy Steele, the owner of Dorothy's Country Oak, in Santa Maria, sold many pieces of oak pieces to him. She said that thousands of underprivileged children have been welcomed to see the animals, hop aboard rides in Jackson's private amusement park and picnic on the ample grounds. But during his trial, Mesereau, overturned any ideas that the county prosecutors would convict the entertainer for molesting numerous children visiting there over the years.
"We have a lot of celebrities here, she added, Jane Russells is one of my favorites. The question of Jackson's permanent residence cropped up during the week after it was reported that he received a jury summons to appear in a Santa Maria courthouse, said Santa Barbara County court spokesman Gary Blair.
Another Jackson attorney, Robert Sanger, called court officials to tell them the 47-year-old entertainer would not be able to serve because he would no longer be living at Neverland, Blair said.
Jackson purchased Neverland, formerly a cattle ranch, in Santa Ynez for about $17 million in 1988 and turned it into a theme park with carnival rides and a private zoo. The 4-square-mile ranch also included a steam engine the singer rode along a 1 1/2 -mile track.
There has been much speculation in the Los Olivos area about whether Jackson is trying to sell Neverland to pay off mounting legal bills. But local real estate agents said they have not heard that it's on the market. Most agree that the ranch could fetch from $50 million to $100 million if it were ever sold. Some of his supporters expressed doubt that he would ever truly leave Neverland.
