Michael Jackson has moved into a mansion opposite a school, prompting complaints from parents.
Jackson, who was acquitted of child molestation charges in 2005, is set to face a backlash from disgruntled parents who have children attending Las Vegas' Wasden Elementary School for four to 13 year olds.
One concerned mother said: "Of all the residences he could stay at why choose one across from an elementary school? But I understand he was never convicted of anything and can live wherever he wants."
Jackson, 50, moved to Las Vegas with his children Prince Michael, 11, Paris, 10 and Prince Michael II, six, last year. Locals say he has not visited the school.
He is believed to have been housed by casino and hotel owner Steve Wynn, who wants to persuade Jackson to appear in a comeback show at his luxury resort the Wynn.
Although rumours of a Las Vegas residency have been abound for some time, details are yet to have emerged.
