The gate of the luxury house.

According to American news reports a Chinese American couple recently paid a cash installment of 3.1 million U.S. dollars to buy a luxury Las Vegas house which had previously been rented by Michael Jackson.

The real estate agent said selling the house was quite a difficult process. After M.J. died, a large number of his fans pretended they were interested in buying the property just so they could visit the house that Jackson had once lived. Finally, a rich Chinese American couple, also fans of Michael, bought the house.

The agent refused to offer detailed information to media, only revealing that the couple, a lawyer and a doctor, were living in South California, and that they have properties in both California and Asia. According to the agent, this deal also set a record for buying a single house in Las Vegas in the last year.

A 1,500 square meter paradise

The house is located near Las Vegas's Chinatown and has an area of more than 1,500 square meters, comprising seven living rooms, ten bathrooms, a twenty-seat-theater, indoor gym and elevator.

Netizens say it's just like a "paradise".

It is known that Michael Jackson rented this house in late 2006 with 1 million U.S. dollars, and spent half a year here. After Jackson's death, the house became another important place for fans to remember him.

At the same time, Michael's Neverland is also on auction with a quoted price of 16.5 million U.S. dollars.
