London: The house where Michael Jackson died has been sold for 12.4 million pounds, it has been revealed.

Investment banker Steven Mayer has been named as the new owner, the Daily Star reported.

The pop legend rented the French chateau-style property in LA’s exclusive Holmby Hills, before he died, aged 50, from a massive overdose of hospital anaesthetic Propofol in June, 2009.

Fans have regularly gathered at the mansion’s gates to mount vigils on the anniversary of the tragedy and to pay respects on the singer’s birthday and at Christmas.
