(Newser) – Michael Jackson has a new pad, and it's costing him $100,000. A month. The Bel-Air mansion—seven bedroom, 13 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces—was one of the priciest houses on the market in LA before Jacko signed his lease, the LA Times reports. A rep said Jackson is considering various show biz opportunities and wants to be "where all the action is."
