When the Checks Stop Coming In…Start Selling Gloves and Things: Michael Jackson

- By Bossip Staff

Jacko just put the infamous Glitter Glove up for grabs and is taking on all bidders in this desperate time of need:

Michael Jackson’s glittery glove is going on the auction block. The glove, which inspired countless copycats, quips and Halloween costumes after it was unveiled in the 1983 video for Jackson’s hit “Billie Jean,” will be part of a five-day auction next year, Julien’s Auctions announced Wednesday. Jackson is also unloading the grandiose gates that once led to his Neverland Ranch, along with more than 2,000 other personal items. The King of Pop’s possessions will be on display before the auction begins on April 21, 2009. Bids will be accepted in person and online. The sale is to be broadcast live on Auction Network. Jackson plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to MusiCares, a charitable organization founded by the Recording Academy to help musicians in need. The singer has been plagued by financial woes since he was acquitted of child-molestation charges in 2003. He went into default on his sprawling Neverland property earlier this year, before an investment company bought the loan. Last month, Jackson’s lawyers reached a settlement in a $7 million breach-of-contract case brought by a Bahraini sheik. As Jackson marked his milestone 50th birthday in August, the reclusive star hinted that he would be back to work eventually.

“(I’m) looking forward to doing a lot of great things,” he told ABC News. “I think the best is yet to come in my true humble opinion.”

That last line is a crock. The best days are behind you Jacko. You need to get it together and use this money and your little come back loot to make some good investments and stay out the poor house.

    If you think mj is broke your stupid, just like anyone that think the Rockefeller and Rothschild are really worth a few billions.

  • Whut??

    I remember those days in the 80’s when Michael could have run for President and probably won. The people that cheer while your coming up, are the same ones that will spit on you while your coming down.

    Best to get out and disappear while your still on top of your game. If you do things right, you can at least look forward to getting broke off a couple of millz with a big Vegas show when your old and irrelevant.

    maybe Beyonce can use it for her next jawn..

    Like Chris Rock said … “PRINCE WON !!!” Prince is doin’ shows when he wants 2, releasing albums when he wants 2 on his own label and basically loungin’ with no financial cares. And Mike? Dude has 2 auction stuff off while tryin’ 2 stiff Arabs. How the mighty have fallen [understanding shakes head … exits page].

    I’m always surprised how Janet seems to be the only one in that family with no financial problems. Michael needs to get in touch with her financial adviser.

    I buy and sell gloves but I’ll pass on these heirlooms. There is something about recycled gloves that doesn’t appeal to me 🙂

  • Shante'

    Oh please MJ has about 20 gloves. I seriously doubt if that is his one and only. He has to pay off his debts, times are hard. While he is at it, He should sell those jakcets that he wore in Billie Jean, Beat it and thriller videos. He could fetch about 2.5 million from some crazed fan.
