Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch Is Up For Sale At Discounted Rate

The late singer's former property in California is back on the market ahead of the broadcast of the controversial 'Leaving Neverland' documentary.

The ranch is now listed for $45 million --  a sharp drop in price from when it was last up for sale in 2015 for close to $100 million, Deadline reports.

Jackson purchased the ranch -- situated just 60km from Santa Barbara -- back in 1987 and gave it the name 'Neverland' as an homage to the magical land in J.M Barrie's Peter Pan. 

The property once included a private amusement park, complete with a Ferris wheel, bumper cars and a merry-go-round.
