December 25, 2006 7:01am CST
Michael Jackson, 48, has moved into a house in Las Vegas and plans to live there while working on a deal to do a live show on the Strip, a la Celine Dion, a source tells Us Weekly. A veil-clad Jacko arrived at McCarron airport's private hangar on Saturday afternoon, eager to take up residence in his new pad. The gated Spanish-style mansion (featured above) is located in a custom-home community on the city's west side, and features a classic stucco red tile roof. Las Vegas entertainer Jeff Beacher, creator of Beacher's Madhouse at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, confirms Jackson's arrival in Vegas."He wants to make his comeback here,” the LV entertainer tells Us. "Jackson wants this to be his new Neverland."Sources tell the Las Vegas Review Journal that Jackson's friend, gaming dealmaker Jack Wishna, was instrumental in having the pop icon move back to the United States. Wishna confirmed Jackson's move to the Journal Review, saying "We are working on several projects."Calling Jackson "one of the greatest entertainers in the world," Wishna said the singer "is poised to return to the top of the entertainment world soon."After being acquitted of child molestation charges in June 2005, Jackson left his famed personal theme park, Neverland Ranch, and relocated to Bahrain, an island in the Persian Gulf, along with his son, Prince Michael I, 9, daughter, Paris, 8, and son Prince Michael II, 4. He moved his brood to Ireland in June 2006 where they have been living with Irish dance sensation Michael Flatley in his castle in County Cork.
