Neverland May Be Jacko's Ticket to Vegas

11/12/2008 1:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson doesn't own Neverland Ranch anymore, kinda sorta.

According to official documents, the title to Neverland was transferred Monday to a company called Sycamore Valley Ranch Company LLC. Now here's where the plot thickens.

Sycamore is a joint venture between Michael Jackson and a division of a company called Colony Capital. Colony Capital owns the Las Vegas Hilton, the Red Rock Country Club, and other Las Vegas properties.

TMZ published several stories earlier this year, in which we said Colony Capital bailed Jacko out by buying his $23.5 million Neverland mortgage.

The man behind Colony Capital, Thomas Barrack, Jr. is a Vegas mover and shaker, and there's a buzz in Vegas that Jackson could end up performing at the Hilton and living in the Red Rock Country Club. In fact, we reported this earlier in the year.

So now, Neverland is owned by both Jackson and Barrack's company. Will Jacko perform at Barrack's hotel? Stay tuned.

BTW, we were told the property will NOT BE CALLED NEVERLAND ANYMORE. It will be renamed the Sycamore Valley Ranch, in an attempt to erase those pesky child molestation rumors, even though Jackson was criminally acquitted.

I think it's a great move. I was hoping that Michael would keep the property, and make it a winey or something. I understand that he a part owner, but I think it's a Good business move. At least the property wasn't lost in forclosure. Hopefully after a few years he will see steady stream of income from the investment.
