Michael Jackson's famous Neverland Ranch is reportedly going up for sale in the near future. According to Forbes, the California ranch is being sold off by real estate investment firm Colonial Capital. A spokesperson for Jackson's estate told Forbes, "We are frustrated, bitterly disappointed and saddened that it has come to this. Sadly, Michael lost control of Neverland during his life as a result of advice from a former manager."

The singer hasn't released a new record in six years but in a new interview with Barefoot Sound, producer/engineer Ian Cross says Miss Jackson has been in the studio. Cross revealed that he has been recording overseas with Jackson in studios in Qatar, Paris and the Middle East. Cross also said, "The new album is going to be great. It’s a process. There’s a lot in store, yet to come."
