Michael Jackson’s furniture goes up for auction on eBay

The makeup-stained bedroom chair and a parquetry side table from the rented mansion where pop star Michael Jackson tragically died on June 25, 2009, are up for sale on EBAY. Brian Mayes, a Jackson fan and Nashville-based entertainment publicist, is selling the items originally acquired through Julien’s Auctions.

The chair was made infamous by crime scene photos shown in the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray. The chair was also featured in the premiere episode of CMT’s 2014 reality series, RAIDERS OF ROCK.

Particularly notable are the makeup stains on the chair, where Jackson is said to have sat each day while getting ready. The Rococo style side table was also a fixture in Jackson’s final home.

“These items are truly a piece of rock and roll history and a must for any Michael Jackson fan,” says Mayes, whose memorabilia collection also includes items that once belonged to Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and others. “Tragically, the makeup-stained chair is the lone witness to Jackson’s death. If only we could get the chair to tell the secrets of what really happened in those final hours.”
