It seems that the common man isn’t the only one effected by these trying financial times. The King of Pop seems to have been affected as well. A huge public auction is being held this April, where over 2,000 of Michael Jackson‘s personal belongings will go up for auction.
The event is to be held over the course of five days at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Michael Jackson himself was key in organizing the exhibition. The world renowned entertainer hopes to raise millions of dollars to improve his current financial woes.
The vast auction has filled a six-volume book detailing every lot and US TV channel the Auction Network are set to broadcast the auction live both on national TV and the internet.
Items on sale include the gates to his Neverland Ranch, a touring coach, a signed oil-painting of Jackson dressed as a king, a golf cart featuring the singer depicted as Peter Pan, Jackson’s sequinned jacket he wore for the 1984 Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony, a set of his signature Swarovski crystal gloves (including the iconic white glove from his Billie Jean video) and a robotic Michael Jackson head from his 1988 film Moonwalker.
