Michael Jackson Halts Sale of Personal Items, Sues Auction House

Michael Jackson has put a stop to an anticipated auction that would have offered thousands of his personal possessions. According to court papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, Jackson’s company MJJ Productions filed suit against Julien’s Auction House. In the suit, Jackson claims several items are “priceless and irreplaceable” and describes the attempt to sell them as “malicious, fraudulent, extreme, outrageous, and without any legal justification whatsoever.” Julien’s Auction House had announced plans earlier this year to hold the auction, that would have offered several of the “King Of Pop’s’ gloves and even one of his American Music Awards. For the Julien’s, the lawsuit is surprising. Speaking with reporters this week, Julie said the lawsuit was a “total surprise to us, because Jackson had been apprised of everything since the day we started.” “There was no other intention when we picked up the items.” “Up until two days ago we were working with his managers.” In related news, Michael Jackson is expected to reveal the dates for his forthcoming comeback series of shows at London’s O2 Arena this summer Thursday.
