Makeup-stained bedroom chair from Michael Jackson’s final home – pictured on the set of CMT’s “Raiders of Rock.”

This particular 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.

The Henredon style bergere chair with button-tufted upholstery was located next to Jackson’s bed in the master bedroom of the rented Holmby Hills mansion where he died. Particularly notable are the makeup stains on the chair, where Jackson is said to have sat each day while getting ready.

“This chair is truly a piece of rock and roll history,” says owner Brian Mayes, a Jackson fan and Nashville-based entertainment publicist. “Tragically, the 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.”

The chair is available via EBAY for a limited time. For more information, visit http://tinyurl.com/MichaelJacksonChair

In related news, the Michael Jackson estate is still pulling in a ton of cash. While the King of Pop may have been close to bankruptcy, in his death the benefactors have made over $700 million.

“Michael Jackson is making more money now, five years after his death, than he had been since the prime of his career,” Zack Greenburg, author of Michael Jackson Inc., told AFP.

Telegraph details how the mother and Jackson’s children have fared since his death in 2009.

The Michael Jackson Estate, led by executors John Branca and John McClain, decided they needed to rapidly generate revenues to stave off the nearly £300m debts that Jackson had built up in the last five years of his life,” the article notes.

The estate’s first money-making ventures was the This Is It motion picture, taken from footage of rehearsals for the doomed final tour. The film made over $260 million globally.
