Michael Jackson, who turned 50 this year, has leased a sprawling mansion in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles for a whopping $100,000 a month.

The home, a 17,171 square foot, 3-story French Chateau style estate, which sits on 1.26 acres, includes 7 bedrooms, 12 fireplaces, entrance hall with curving staircase, formal living and dining rooms, a den with adjoining library, theater room, family room, gourmet kitchen with eating area, wine cellar and heated swimming pool.

Earlier this year, Jackson's Neverland Ranch faced foreclosure, and in November ownership of the property was transferred to Sycamore Valley Ranch Company LLC.
