– 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 Lost City
PLUS founded sites a few years ago (some of them works some not):
The Palace of the Lost City
The Palace of the Lost City
“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
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
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.
