Among all of Michael Jackson’s possessions, his most memorable — besides his discography — would probably be his Neverland Ranch. Known for its animals and amusement park atmosphere as much as being the base for, uh, some of those alleged activities with children, it was interesting to hear Wilmer Valderrama talk about his week-long stay at Jackson’s property.
It started when he was doing a movie with Macaulay Culkin called Party Monster. Culkin noted that “his friend’s” ranch was going to be empty for the week and that some of the crew could hang out there for the week. Valderrama drove up with a few of the other actors and noticed the “MJ” on the gates. After getting confirmation that this was indeed Michael Jackson and not Jordan, Valderrama stayed and had a fun time with friends at the sprawling property.
Towards the end of the stay, Jackson made his return to much fanfare and animal greeting. Valderama had nothing but positive things to say about his encounter with Jackson. This didn’t stop fellow guest Adam Scott from asking a question many were thinking when the story first came up. A similar issue arose when Valderrama exclaimed his disbelief of experiencing all this after being “a little boy from South America,” a phrase which had other connotations here.
