THE contents of the home where Michael Jackson lived with his three children just before his death have sold for nearly a million dollars at auction. Darren Julien, president of Juliens Auctions, was unable to provide a more specific figure as he continued to tally the totals after the day-long auction, which brought in nearly triple the companys pre-auction estimate of $200,000 to $400,000. Among the highlights were a kitchen chalkboard where Jacksons children wrote I love daddy, which sold for $5,000, and an armoire upon which Jackson wrote a message to himself on the mirror, that fetched $25,750. The auction also included furniture, artwork and other items from the rented mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive, Los Angeles, where Jackson lived as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts in London before his death in June 2009. The headboard from the bed where Jackson died at the age of 50 was removed from the auction at the familys request, but the rug that beneath the bed sold for $15,360. The estimate had been $400 to $600. Juliens Auctions recreated the mansion inside its Beverly Hills showroom and invited fans to fill the space where the bed would have been with a tribute to the late King of Pop. Mr Julien promised to deliver all of the tribute items to Jacksons children and family matriarch Katherine Jackson. BN Michael Jackson has the greatest fans in the world. I can see why he lived for them, Mr Julien said. They came out every day this week to bring gifts. Its unlike anything weve ever seen as it relates to a celebrity and their fans.
