These are some disturbing images.
Michael Jackson is undoubtedly one of the greatest singer - songwriters of all time. Often called the King of Pop, MJ has written some of the greatest songs and lent music to them. He was an eccentric dancer and best entertainer the US produced. Michael passed away in 2009 due to drug overdose and left behind a legacy to be celebrated for years to come.
Michael's home, the Neverland Ranch, which also served as an amusement park lies abandoned and no clear owner of this property has emerged to claim it.
Four friends broke into Michael's Neverland Ranch in search of some answers. And what they found out in there was quite surprising. Michael surely had a dark past. From facing allegations of sexually abusing children to undergoing plastic surgery, there was a dark phase in Michael's life. Four people who were friends got inside Neverland Ranch and discovered something for which they were not ready.
Neverland Ranch was meant to be Michael's dreamland. It was a place where he gave shape to his innermost desires and acted out all his fantasies.
The four friends did some research on the property before visiting it. They found out that the home's electricity bills were not paid. Some shocking things were uncovered during the raid. This increased their curiosity to sneak in.
The four friends, who call themselves "urban explorers," usually visit abandoned malls and schools, but this was their first residential visit. They managed to sneak past the home guards, and after that, there was nobody to be found in the premises. But they had absolutely no idea what they were in for!
There was a creepy painting of Michael being portrayed as the 'Pied Piper' of Hamlin. The portrait is disturbing especially in light of Michael's child abuse allegations because the painting shows him leading a bunch of kids astray!
There were some scary magazines and terrifying demonic statues. They also found a stack of fan mail. The picture on top was that of attorney attempting to convict Michael Jackson with devil horns drawn on him.
Some of the interior designing is disturbing and eerie! Even the door nobs and other accessories were custom-made using children as the theme.
Neverland also had a zoo with an exotic breed of different animals. The facility has been abandoned since Michael's death.
There were some abandoned cars in the amusement park, which are considered to be haunted. Even the bumper cars above have the little boy logo printed on them, just like many other places.
Above the golden cash register, there is a creepy portrait of Michael shown as an Alien Lord. Was Michael trying to hint at something?
The urban explorers found statues of children on display. Again, a disturbing spectacle in light of allegations of sexual abuse against Michael.
Given that Michael wanted to act out his fantasies through the ranch, Neverland appears to be a weird place with some eerie and creepy paintings and decor!
