Michael Jackson captivated audiences in a career that spanned over four decades. Also, he remains a towering influence on artistes today even 10 years after his passing.
Jackson, who lived a very private life during his final years, suffered a cardiac arrest after overdosing on medication to help him sleep in his rented mansion at Holmby Hills in Los Angeles. The incident reportedly happened in one of his bedrooms known as the “medication room.”
After his passing, the owner of the mansion, who opted to remain anonymous, reportedly put quite a handful of the movable items and furniture up for auction. Jackson rented the mansion fully furnished.
Among the priced items that were auctioned included the furniture in his private bedroom where no one, including his children, were even allowed to enter. An armoire in the room, which Jackson personally wrote “Train, perfection March April Full out May” on its mirror with a wax pencil was sold for $18,750.
The caption was reportedly meant to motivate him anytime he looked in the mirror as he prepared for his “This is It” concerts in London.
The bed in the medication room on which he died was also reportedly put up for sale, but the auctioneers removed it from the list of items after a request from his mother, Katherine Jackson, according to CNN.
