Teen pop star Justin Bieber reportedly has his eyes set on making a Neverland -style zoo, which was built by late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Justin Bieber has received Artist of the Year award at the 2010 American Music Awards and has been nominated for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards.
The 19-year-old Boyfriend hitmaker, who was recently caught by customs officers while he was trying to sneak his pet monkey Mally into Germany, doesn't care if he faces prosecution over the incident and wants to start building up a collection of even wilder animals, reported Sun online.
"Justin has become such a diva he doesn't care if he faces prosecution over the monkey incident and wants to start building up a collection of even wilder animals," a source said.
"He has been saying he loves the way Michael Jackson had an amazing collection of beasts and he wants his own zoo, including chimps, a llama, emu and camel," it added.
Jackson, who travelled the world with his chimp Bubbles had a private zoo at his 2,600-acre Neverland home in California. It housed chimps, tigers, giraffes, zebras, elephants, alligators, alpacas and snakes and cost more than 600,000 pounds a year to maintain.
"Justin seems to be living in the same fantasy world as the King of Pop. It is part of his mad behaviour and hero worship of Jacko. And that is very worrying considering the mess Jackson created for himself," the source said.
