Michael Jackson's Los Angeles Rental For Sale

Last Updated Apr 26, 2011 9:23 PM EDT

The Los Angeles mansion Michael Jackson rented and was living in with his children when he died last summer is for sale.

Located in the super-exclusive Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, the last residence of the King of Pop is being listed at $28.9 million.

The Real Estalker reports that the lavish Richard-Landry-designed home on North Carolwood Drive has 17,000 square foot, seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms mansion.

Jackson rented it for $100,000 a month.

Built in 2002 the French Chateau-style house includes a library, theater room, wine cellar, gym, elevator and 12 fireplaces. The home, situated on 1.26 acres, is owned by Roxanne and Hubert Guez - current CEO of the Ed Hardy brand.
According to, interested buyers will be put through an "extensive pre-qualifying check" before being allowed inside in an attempt to keep fans out.

But I think the most likely buyer might be a Michael Jackson fan - albeit one who has a whole lot of cash.
