Michael Jackson’s Death Bed Goes on the Auction Block

Epic Records

What do you get for the Michael Jackson fan on your Christmas list that they don’t already have? How about the actual bed he died in?

E! News reports that on December 17th, Julien’s Auctions out of Beverly Hills will give people the opportunity to bid on the bed along with other items from the Los Angeles home Jackson died in which include a Louis XV headboard as well as paintings by Maurice Utrillo and Henri Rousseau.

Other items available at the auction that will be more personal in nature include a kitchen chalkboard with a note that reads: “I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free” along with an antique armoire with a message written on the mirror by Jackson to himself regarding the upcoming tour he was scheduled to begin in London which read, “TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May.”

According to Darren Julien of Julien’s Auctions, the bidding for the bed will begin between $3,000-$5,000, but they will, “…let the market determine it’s final price.”

Imagine the conversation between the person who buys the bed and any random house guest that stops by:

Guest: OH! I love that bed, it’s so elegant.

Buyer: Go ahead, have a seat.

Guest: (sits) It seems very comfortable and I love the craftsmanship. May I ask where you bought it?

Buyer: I got it at an auction.

Guest: Really? It’s exquisite. (sips on a beverage)

Buyer: It should be, it’s the one Michael Jackson died on.

Guest: (spits beverage) Do you have any Purell? I suddenly feel dirty.
