(Newser) – Michael Jackson's Neverland dream is over, E! Online reports. The star has handed the deed for his now run-down 2,500-acre California ranch to a company owned partly by himself and partly by the real estate firm that owns the Las Vegas Hilton—sparking rumors that a ranch comeback could be on the cards. The site, once home to a thriving zoo and state-of-the-art amusement park, will be renamed the Sycamore Valley Ranch.
