Michael Jackson went to make an offer on a Bahraini businessman's house, but ended up having dinner with his family instead of buying the house.
A source is quoted in a local paper saying:
"Michael was being chauffeured in the Saar area (in Manama) when he spotted a house he liked. He did not hesitate to call on the family and ask them if they were willing to sell their house.
The family, astonished by the unexpected appearance of the superstar and amused by the offer, told him the house was not for sale, but that he was welcome to share their dinner."
With the closure of Neverland, it is rumoured that Jackson intends to stay permanently in Bahrain.
