Star wants bowling alley etc

Never mind a few warm bottles of Carling and nary a taxi fare at the end of the night - for his forthcoming O2 residency, Michael Jackson has requested that promoters build a funfair in the grounds of the Foxbury Manor estate in Kent, where he'll stay for the duration of his mammoth 02 residency.

"Michael is quite particular," a ''''''''''''source'''''''''''' told The Sun. "He's missed living in Neverland since debts forced him to get rid of it four years ago.

"He thinks he can recreate a bit of its magic in Kent and concert bosses are happy to indulge him. He loves bowling, so has insisted an alley be created and he's never lost his love of funfairs, so has demanded one be built in the grounds."

The well-informed informant also explained that the play areas wouldn't just be for Jacko: "Michael will be bringing his kids with him throughout the run," they added. "Prince Michael, Paris Michael and Prince Michael II are all under 12 years old, so should really enjoy all the rides and amusements their father will provide for them."
