Michael Jackson sues over Neverland auction



Tbdmichaeljackson030909 While Michael Jackson is getting ready for a round of concerts in London, his legal team is busy suing over an auction of his private property, CNN reports.

MJJ Productions filed suit in L.A. against Julien's Auction House, which is planning a five-day auction in April to liquidate Neverland Ranch. Lucky rich folks can buy his famous white glove, a stretched Rolls-Royce and even the front gates. The suit says the house can't sell any of the items without Michael's permission, which strikes us as counterintuitive to a liquidation.

"The conduct of the defendants was malicious, fraudulent, extreme, outrageous and without any legal justification whatsoever," the suit read. Julien's was not impressed, however.

"We have been accommodating any requests made by Michael Jackson for the past eight months," auctioneer Darren Julien said. "If it is true and he is stating that there are items he does not want sold, why would he have ever given us the items in the first place? We are an auction house, and that is all that we do. We are not a mover or storage facility."

But have you ever seen MJ go shopping? That guy probably had rooms full of stuff even he's never seen before.
