Interrupted albino by choice, Michael Jackson is having a garage sale:
The singer’s most treasured possessions are going under the hammer – in the hope of raising up to £2million for the cash-strapped King of Pop.
Items such as Jacko’s iconic glittery glove – unveiled in the 1983 video for his smash hit Billie Jean – famous stage costumes, flash pieces of jewellery, his luxurious tour bus and many of his paintings, sculptures, awards and arcade games are being auctioned off. The glove – completely covered in clear Swarovski crystals – is expected to fetch up to £10,000 alone.
The gilt and iron gates to Jackson’s Neverland ranch are also up for grabs – with a price tag of between £15,000-£20,000. The sparkly black jacket he wore for his 1984 Hollywood Walk Of Fame star dedication ceremony is also going for a mere £15,000.
But the priciest item by a mile is Jackson’s custom-made 1999 Rolls Royce, which comes with an estimate of £100,000-£112,000. The extravaganza – to be held at a Beverly Hilton Hotel – starts on April 22 and will spread over four days. Organisers say it is bound to give the public a rare glimpse into the private world of the controversial singer.
Ole Jacko is probably trying to raise money for his next melanin-reduction treatment or some sh*t – and the tragedy continues…
