Neverland was Jackson’s playground and refuge.
Despite how years and years of allegations and accusations have tarnished his reputation, the star undeniably had an obsession with childhood.
Neverland is a child’s dream, full of funfair rides and statues of the eternal boy, Peter Pan. Even the gates are embossed with the words ‘Once Upon A Time.’
But one day, years before his death, the magic died for Michael Jackson and he never took joy in his beloved home ever again.
Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard served as Jackson’s security team from December 2006 right up to his untimely death in June 2009. They spoke to Express Online about their time with the troubled star.
