Siblings Michael and Janet Jackson Wants Their Stuff Back

Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson want their stuff back from an auction that was held from May 30-31 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on behalf of Universal Express, which bought more than 20,000 pieces of memorabilia for $5 million from New Jersey construction company owner Henry Vaccaro. Michael is seeking the return of 25 items, including some autographed “We Are the World” sheet music, a collection of Three Stooges memorabilia, a notebook containing sketches, legal documents and a piece of Aboriginal art he was given in 1987 in honor of his record-breaking Thriller sales in Australia. The items on his sister’s list include her marriage certificate from her short-lived union with singer James DeBarge, script pages from a 1984 Diff’rent Strokes appearance and high school notes and doodles. A contempt hearing has been set for July 16 to determine whether the Boca Raton, Florida-based Universal Express Inc. violated a court order by proceeding with the 1,100-lot sale even after Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez barred the aforementioned stuff from being placed on the auction block. It was originally Michael Jackson who filed suit to stop the auction from happening, but, under the terms of a confidential settlement, the sale was allowed to go forward—minus 25 items specified by the erstwhile King of Pop’s attorneys.
