PLUS

– MJ invested in Landmark Entertainment through Kingdom Entertainment, but sold his part in the late 90’s.
By the way, in 2001 Landmark Entertainment showed losses and very
possible could be dissolved, sold out in parts. This explains why there
is no single record about this compnany and it’s activity since 2001.



Jackson International LLC owns a part of Ticket.com Inc. Ticket.com Inc. is the second largest online ticket-seller.


Furthermore I can assure that Michael has some publicly not known
companies in resorts and in the HI-Tech/Internet market, since he has
to keep his name out of the records because of the press.

Michael is also a big shareholder of Sun International, which is the owner of Sun City in South Africa.

There are 4 hotels in Sun City and one of them is

“The Palace of Lost City” which Michael owns completely.



Very few people know about that…

The Palace of the Lost City

Developed by Sol Kerzner, the boxer-turned-businessman known locally as
the “Sun King,” who capitalized on South Africa’s stern antigambling
laws by situating Sun City in the then homeland of Bophuthatswana, Sun
City is unlikely to bowl over anyone who’s ever been to Vegas, but it
continues to rake in visitors and Bollywood film crews who love its
larger than life atmosphere. The resort is relatively easy to get
around, with shuttle buses constantly moving from one end to the next.
A “sky train” takes visitors without cars from the entrance to the
entertainment center. Closest to the entrance are the Kwena Crocodile
Sanctuary, Waterworld, and The Cabanas, followed by the tacky Sun City
Hotel, Casino, and world-famous Gary Player Golf Club. Adjoining this
club to the north is the more upmarket Cascades Hotel and Entertainment
Centre, from where you enter the grounds of the Palace of the Lost City
— for most visitors, the star attraction.

The Palace was built 12 years after Sun City opened, and the sheer
magnitude of its opulence is proof of the amount of money taken from
those frequenting Sun City’s slot machines and tables. Separated from
the rest of the resort by “The Bridge of Time” — a large stone
structure that shudders and rumbles at preappointed times from a
mythical earthquake, and is lined with a “guard of honor” of carved
elephants — the Palace is entered through the massive Mighty Kong
Gates. Looking down on the rivers and jungle vegetation, it’s hard to
imagine that 15 years ago this was nothing but a dusty, rocky plain.
From the bridge, you can clearly see the “Valley of Waves,” where
landlocked Gautengers learn to “surf” on simulated waves, tan on
man-made beaches, and hurtle down steep waterslides, reaching speeds of
up to 35kmph (22 mph; note that the Valley is closed in winter). In the
distance, overlooking a lake filled with live flamingos, is the
majestic Palace, with what seems like an entire jungle of carved
animals in attendance. Surrounding the Palace is what must be the most
artfully landscaped garden in Africa, featuring five trails through 22
different sections of forest. The theme (that of a “lost city” that has
been rediscovered and restored) is sometimes carried to ridiculous
extremes, but the craftsmanship is world-class; the fantasy landscape
is quite overwhelming. With Michael Jackson a majority shareholder,
things can only get weirder.

The Palace of the Lost City


http://www.sun-city-south-africa.go2…com/palace.asp

“The Palace of the Lost City in South Africa ranks as one of the
world’s most extraordinary hotels. The centerpiece of the extraordinary
Palace of the Lost City complex is a fairytale palace residence, built
with unbelievable attention to detail. The interior features exquisite
mosaics, frescoes and hand-painted ceilings depicting South Africa ‘s
wildlife and culture. Hard to believe that this is all located in a
remote part of South Africa!”

Michael Jackson Seeks South Africa Hotel Stake

NEW YORK – Pop superstar Michael Jackson and his business partner are in
talks to buy a $60 million stake in hotel and casino group Sun
International South Africa Ltd., according to sources familiar with the
situation.

Jackson and Detroit businessman Don
Barden are seeking to buy a 28 percent investment being sold by major
shareholder North West Development Corp. Ltd., said the sources, who
declined to be identified. The pair has been
searching since last year to invest in the booming hotel and casino
business.

They have scouted properties in the U.S. Virgin Islands and
held preliminary talks with Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc.
last October to buy the Desert Inn resort in Las Vegas. They have considered other properties in Las Vegas, and also unsuccessfully tried to build a casino in Detroit.

One source said Barden was expected to fly to South Africa next week in hopes of completing the deal. Shares of Sun International, known as Sisa, rose sharply in South Africa on speculation about a potential deal with Jackson. Sisa declined comment. Jackson, Barden and North West could not be reached for comment.
