Los Angeles - The house where Michael Jackson died has gone up for sale.

The Beverly Hills mansion - in which the Thriller singer passed away from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 aged 50 - went on the market on Monday for $23.9m and, according to gossip website TMZ, a "major celebrity" will look at it on Thursday.

The realtor - Mauricio Umansky, the CEO and co-founder of The Agency in Beverly Hills - will only show the property to serious buyers who have pre-qualified by proving they have the cash to buy the home.

On and off

The property - which Michael rented and lived in with his three children, Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and 10-year-old Blanket - has been on and off the market since the Man in the Mirror hitmaker died and is completely empty.

It has 13 bathrooms, a swimming pool, guest house and an elevator.

Last December, a number of items from the mansion went on sale including high-priced paintings by Maurice Utrillo and Henri Rosseau, candles and silverware. 

Michael's personal physician Dr Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in relation to the King of Pop's death last November.
