Lady Gaga is said to have set her sights on Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch.

The singer is reportedly keen to restore Jacko's beloved estate to its former glory by buying a share in it.

A source told The Sun that Gaga wants to help his children hang on to their childhood home.

“Lady Gaga is obsessed with Michael. She’s become good friends with his sister LaToya and would love more than anything else to restore Neverland to its original state," they said.

“His kids are all desperate to hold on to their childhood home so they can decide what they want to do with it properly when they’ve grown up.

“Gaga would love to help with the financial costs by buying a share.”

The California home, which Michael bought in 1988, is situated on 3,000 acres of land and once included its own railway track, petting zoo and a fairground.

But before his death, Michael was forced to hand over his $23m mortgage to an investment group when he got into financial difficulty.

The 'Born This Way' singer has always spoken of her love for Michael, and previously bought his famous crystal emblazoned glove for $190,000 at auction, along with 54 other items of memorabilia.

She tweeted at the time "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide."

Lady Gaga was due to support Michael on the London dates of his 'This Is It' tour before his death in 2009.

She told chat show host David Letterman at the time: "There was some talk about the openers doing duets with Michael on stage.

“But Michael’s death was devastating for me regardless of whether I was supposed to go on tour with him.”

  • The Beckhams

    Officially known as Rowneybury House, this Grade II listed Georgian-style mansion in Hertfordshire was purchased by Posh and Becks shortly after they tied the knot in 1999 - and was instantly renamed Beckingham Palace by the press.They paid £2.5m then, but post-house price boom we expect the property, built in the 1930s and formerly used by the council as a children's home, is now worth much more than that.With David's move to Tottenham Hotspur, the couple will probably be spending a lot more time here again.

  • Brangelina

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a number of properties together, but this luxurious compound in the Los Feliz neighbourhood of LA is where they and their brood spend their time when working.They are believed to own around two acres worth of real estate, taking in what used to be a number of separate properties.The couple also have a home in their favourite city New Orleans - and were reported to have paid $40m for a mansion in Italy in 2010.

  • Simon Cowell

    You'd expect X Factor supremo Simon Cowell to have a pretty swanky pad, and his main residence in Beverly Hills doesn't disappoint.He first bought the property back in 2004, but it wasn't until 2006 that it was demolished and work began building his dream home.It now has a gym, pool, extensive outdoor entertainment areas and a high-tech media room.

  • Kerry Katona again

    And we were even more surprised when Kerry ditched her last place to move into this EVEN BIGGER mansion, also in Surrey.This one is reported to be costing her £5,500-a-month - although her management company is helping her out with the rent.She said she wanted more privacy and more space for her four kids.

  • Kerry Katona

    We were all surprised when the recently bankrupt Kerry Katona moved down south - and into this rather expensive luxury pile in Surrey.She was reported to be renting the seven-bedroom, four-bathroom barn conversion for a whopping £3,500-a-month - so she must still be earning a decent amount.But then again she did sell the house that she'd previously bought for her mum to live in...

  • Kylie Minogue

    Kylie Minogue lived in this posh mansion block in London's pricey South Kensington for around 15 years before selling up in 2010.She has now set up home with boyfriend Andres Velencoso in a new place nearby, but we bet this place will end up with a blue plaque.The four-bed flat was on the market for £4m, but we're afraid we don't know if it sold or, if so, what price it fetched. PA

  • Lily Allen

    We took it with a pinch of salt when Lily Allen declared that she was moving out of London to live in the countryside, but lo and behold she only went and did it.The once-notorious party girl spent a reported £3m on this lovely period home in the Cotswolds - close to other celebs such as Kate Moss and Liz Hurley.A year or two later and she really seems to have settled into country life, settling down with boyfriend Sam Cooper at the six-bed pad - which we understand boasts a croquet lawn.

  • Lindsay Lohan

    Lindsay Lohan moved into this nice little place in Venice Beach, LA, when she was granted permission to leave her rehab facility at the end of 2010.Bizarrely, her new pad is right next door to her former girlfriend Samantha Ronson's house - who was reported to be angry at Li-Lo's arrival.But that may have been wrong, because they were later spotted enjoying dinner out together.

  • Madonna

    Madge has been a London resident for years now, and currently resides in this 10-bedroom Georgian townhouse in artsy Marylebone.She and ex-hubby Guy Richie paid £6m for the pad back in 2007 - and she also has two nearby mews houses which staff live in.She reportedly faced competition from comic Jennifer Saunders and photographer Mario Testino to buy this house - but she's a woman used to getting her way and it looks like she did!

  • Michael Jackson

    Probably the most famous (or perhaps infamous?) home of the celebrity era - Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara County, California, was named after the island in Peter Pan.And the story of the boy who never grew up was clearly important to Jacko - who had a private amusement park, zoo and numerous statues of children installed at the property at a cost of many millions.Since his death there in 2009, the home has reverted to a family trust and its future is uncertain.

  • Katy Perry and Russell Brand

    Until recently Russ lived in a north London flat, but splashed out on this £2.2m luxury pad for himself and (now) bride Katy Perry at the end of 2009.It's only got four bedrooms, but they must all be a decent size - and it has a decent pool too.Plus that screen of trees must be handy for keeping the paps at bay when Katy fancies a dip. PA

  • Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

    Hollywood A-listers TomKat obviously have the obligatory mansion in LA - but also own this rather large property in West Sussex.The six-bedroom home they snapped up for £2.5m just after getting married in 2006 is in East Grinstead - the same town that has the dubious honour of being the UK HQ of Scientology.As anyone who's visited East Grinstead will know, it's not exactly party central - so we bet the couple's breaks to the UK are a real laugh-a-minute.
