I Called That One. The First Jackson Auction

The auction world is not always a pretty one. No sooner had I predicted Julien's Auction House would try and sell Michael Jackson memorabilia than they did. They had an auction while his body was still warm! Very creepy. It turns out they had a number of pieces that came from a third party from David Gest. He's the ex-husband of Liza Minnelli, remember? Ugh.

He is now claiming that Julien's did not have the rights to sell the pieces and says he is going to sue. Gee, do you think he feels it was just in bad taste to sell the items so soon after Jackson's death or did he realize that their value had just increased exponentially?? Hmmm. Here's the story on this shameful tale.
