Michael Jackson statue removed from Fulham
LONDON (AP) - September 25, 2013 (WPVI) -- The statue of Michael Jackson outside Premier League club Fulham has been hauled down.
On the orders of new owner Shad Khan, the tribute to the late "King of Pop" was removed Wednesday from outside Craven Cottage in west London.
The statue is being returned to Mohammed Al Fayed, a friend of Jackson's who sold Fulham to Khan in July.
Khan also owns the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. He says "our supporters' views on the statue have been made clear." He adds that "the removal of the statue is the right thing for Fulham."
Jackson died after a lethal overdose of anesthetic in 2009.
