Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Rented Home Attracts Buyer

The house where Michael Jackson died has attracted a buyer.

A Los Angeles businessman has written an offer for around $17 million for the Holmby Hills estate but the property is listed for $23.9 million.

Real estate sources told TMZ that the buyer - who has been trying to sell the home for three years - and the seller are in the process of negotiating to see if they can come to a reasonable agreement.

The insiders insist that the businessman who made the offer ''couldn't care less'' that Michael lived there before passing away in his bedroom in June 2009, after a dose of the prescription drug Propofol.

The owner has had problems selling the house in the past, to some extent because it has been popular with tourists eager to view the famous estate.

Mauricio Umansky - who is married to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kyle Richards - is controlling the listing for the house which was rented by Michael.

Some of Jackson's furniture and personal art from the rental property was sold for a combined total of almost $1 million last December.

Conrad Murray is serving a 4 year prison term for administering the fatal dose of Propofol to Michael Jackson. Geez, TMZ, can't you get it right?

From now on, i'm not going to bother reading articles you post. You just make up details as you wish. DO YOUR RESEARCH, before you get sued for making false statements. SELF ADMINISTERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REALLY? Is that YOUR OPINION? Just the facts, just the facts. He was murdered. You may have heard about the trial? Duh! What a crock of crap you publish!

I don't know who wrote this article but they clearly don't like Michael. The quote that the prospective buyer could care less that Michael lived there, this garbage that Michael self administered the propofol that killed him (somebody better let the jury know that put Conrad Murray in jail) are negative and untruthful. Shame on you.

How is it your writers are so uninformed? Michael Jackson did not administer the Propofol that killed him. A greedy "medical doctor" described as "having and imperial air about him" who played god and Russian Roulette by administering a dangerous medication (unprecedented) night after night to "treat" insomnia in a home setting, without any emergency equipment, with an empty oxygen tank and without proper CPR equipment or training. That doctor is serving time for manslaughter. Why do you not get the facts? Oh, that's right; you're tabloid entertainment and you make it up as you go along.

Wow! I see you corrected your "self administered" LIE pretty quickly. Good choice, seeing as there is readily available court testimony from a highly publicized trial that can easily prove you "couldn't care less" about publishing factual, accurate information.

#1, Michael Jackson did not die "after a self-administered dose of the prescription drug Propofol." If that were the case, his physician Dr. Conrad Murray would not be in fail for manslaughter in the inappropriate use of that drug to help his patient with insomnia.#2, no personal art of effects of Michael Jackson's were sold from this home--only furniture he used, which generated interest for that reason.Please make corrections in this article to accurately reflect the facts.
