Los Angeles - Beyoncé and Jay-Z are looking to buy Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch.
The Love on Top singer and her rapper husband were given a tour of the $29m ranch in Santa Barbara, California by owner Thomas Barack Jr, according to The Sun newspaper.
The famous 3 000-acre ranch - which was named after the fictitious magical island in children's story Peter Pan - was home to the late King of Pop between 1988 and 2005 and has largely been abandoned since the singer's death in 2009.
Beyoncé, 31, and Jay-Z, 43, spend most of the time in the rapper's home state of New York with their 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy, but also spend some months as a family in Beyoncé's hometown of Houston, Texas.
Rare glimpse of Beyoncé
Meanwhile, Beyoncé opened up about her marital life in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her talk show, telling the talk show host that she "would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man".
Appearing on Oprah's Next Chapter, she said: "You know we were friends first for a year and a half before we went on any date - on the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like is so important and someone that is honest."
Beyoncé also starred in a self-produced HBO documentary, Life is but a Dream, which aired in the US on Saturday and gave fans a rare glimpse into her life.
