VH1 to Host Michael Jackson Charity Auction

The Michael Jackson’s belongings will be back on display, this time with VH1 Save the Music Foundation.

The Foundation is set to host a charity auction event that includes some former Michael Jackson memorabilia, like signed records.

The charity comes right on the heels of a $5 million lawsuit filed against the late legend’s estate earlier this month. Michael Jackson’s estate and Julien’s Auction House were sued, after a Jackson auction bidder claims he never got his winnings. Some of the bids included two Michael Jackson mannequins and a silkscreen print of Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

Richard Lapointe says he was the highest bidder on various items from a Michael Jackson auction headed by Julien’s Auction House. Due to disagreements, the auction, which was supposed to have occurred in April, was cancelled. –Linda Hobbs
