Kanye West is 'desperate' to buy Kim K Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch

Los Angeles - Kanye West is "desperate" to buy Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch.

The huge property - which was owned by the late Thriller singer from 1988 to 2005 and included an amusement park and petting zoo - recently went up for sale for £65m and the 37-year-old rapper reportedly wants to buy it as a gift for his wife Kim Kardashian West, after falling in love with the 2400 acres, following a few visits.

However, the All Day hitmaker has asked for a £10m reduction on the asking price of the ranch, located in California.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kanye is desperate to own Neverland but he's not prepared to pay the price they want."

Kim and Kanye only recently moved in to their latest home with their daughter North, after it required extensive renovation, but they could be about to move again if the Gold Digger star gets his way.

While Kanye is able to afford the £65m property now, he revealed this week that he had to "fight to be accepted" into the fashion industry, after starting out as a musician.

Kanye said: "It's a tough world out there. You're going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees - and usually when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most."
