Michael Jackson Death Bed Up For Auction
I don't know whether to file this under 'fanatic' or just plain 'creepy.' The contents inside the gated mansion where Michael Jackson spent his last moments will be up for auction soon including the actual bed that the King of Pop died in.
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at 100 North Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills. That is where he lived with his three kids and prepared for his big comeback tour. After his death, the residence became somewhat of a tribute ground with people pouring out their hearts for the late pop star with cards, flowers, balloons, handwritten notes and more.
Earlier this week Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson and as he sits in a jail cell awaiting sentencing, Julien's Auctions is preparing items that were seen in the exact same bedroom that was shown as evidence in the criminal trial. The room actually looked perfect. There was no sign of struggle, or anyone fighting a deadly drug addiction.
Among the items for sale in the medication room, where evidence was collected for Murray's trial, are upholstered chairs smudged with Jackson's makeup and Jackson's death bed
the pop star wrote a message to himself on the mirror of an antique armoire. "TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May," it reads. Jackson was to begin his London concert run in July.
Photos of the house and all items for sale are being featured in a limited-edition catalog, which is being sold for $100 and Katherine Jackson's attorney, Perry Sanders Jr., says that they have done everything possible to ascertain that the items from the 100 North Carolwood St. auction aren't being sold using Michael's name and likeness to "enhance" the value of all the items.
I have a feeling people will know exactly what they are bidding on, but the real question is ..
