Stop me if you’ve heard this, but Jackson family members not named Michael (R.I.P.), Janet, or even La Toya need to find something better to do to occupy their time. Say, I don’t know … a job?
But if you wanted additional proof, look no further than members of the clan making something out of nothing to score a headline. This time, though, they’re leeching off the celebrities of Beyoncé and Jay Z.
The couple recently toured Neverland Ranch. Why? Well, if you had access, wouldn’t you? Exactly. However, somehow translated that into, “Holy s**t! Jay Z and Beyoncé want to buy Michael Jackson’s estate? LET US TELL THE PRESS.”
Jesus be a job application.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé toured Neverland Ranch — Michael Jackson’s shuttered, 2,700-acre Southern California estate — and are even interested in buying it, according to Jackson family sources.
Shortly after the rap mogul released his “Watch the Throne” documentary last year, the superstar couple jetted off to the King of Pop’s abandoned palace, where they toured the property with Colony Capital owner Thomas Barrack Jr., who manages the estate.
“It is something that we want to keep in the family,” Jacko’s brother Randy said, but the estate will do what it wishes.
Another sibling told the Post that Jacko’s children, who are heirs to his billion-dollar fortune, get upset each time reports surface of a potential Neverland sale.
“It’s the home they loved, the home their father loved and where they can still connect with him,” the family member said.
Jay-Z didn’t deny touring the $29 million property, but told The Post, “I’ve got no interest in Neverland.”
The Jacksons continue to believe there is a real chance the rap impresario and New Jersey Nets minority owner will make a play for the estate, which has been vacant since Jacko fled to Bahrain in 2005 after winning acquittal of 13 criminal counts related to child molestation.
“If Barrack took them to the ranch himself . . . there has got to be something to it,” a family member said Friday.
For the record, unless it’s those lil’ white kids Michael Jackson purchased talking, no one with the last name Jackson has any say on the matter. It’s up to his children, and really, the folks in charge of the estate. Shamon.
