Michael Jackson is vowing to sue the man who has sold some of the pop star's belongings for $1.4 million (GBP792,000), after a court ruled the memorabilia should not be available for sale.

HENRY VACCARO SR had been awarded Jackson family memorabilia in a bankruptcy legal case, and subsequently sold items relating to Michael to a European buyer.

However, following a ruling in Los Angeles last week (ends16APR04) that the construction company owner could not sell Jackson's possessions because the case only applied to Michael's brothers TITO and JERMAINE and their parents KATHERINE and Joe, the troubled singer's lawyers have announced they will sue for the return of the items.

The memorabilia included stage costumes, a medical contract for plastic surgery, supposedly performed on Janet Jackson, and some drawings by Jackson, such as one entitled 'Little Boy 1994'.
