Michael Jackson Death Bed – Items from the house where King of Pop Michael Jackson death occurred in June 2009 are to be put up for auction, including the bed in which he died, an auctioneer announced Wednesday.
Julien’s Auctions of Beverly Hills said it would sell the items on December 17.
Jackson’s family blocked the auctioneer from using the singer’s name in connection with the sale.
Jackson was living in a rented Los Angeles mansion when he died.
The seven-bedroom mansion, at 100 North Carolwood in the exclusive Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, is listed on Prudential California Reality’s website for 23,500,000 dollars.
The mansion’s owner initiated the auction.
Items on the auction block include artworks, furniture, and even a kitchen chalkboard on which Jackson’s children had written ‘I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free.’
Bedroom chairs smeared with Jackson’s make-up are also for sale.
The auction lists hundreds of items, including the queen-size bed where Jackson died aged 50 after suffering a heart attack.
An autopsy later revealed Jackson’s heart attack was due to an overdose of the hospital anesthetic propofol, given to him by his physician Conrad Murray.
The auction’s announcement coincided with Murray’s manslaughter conviction on Monday.
