Jackson Lawyer Condemns China Auction

A lawyer representing MICHAEL JACKSON's family has condemned plans for a memorabilia auction in China in October (10) - insisting the late superstar "would be turning in his grave" if he knew about the sale.
A rare black, bejewelled glove worn by the King of Pop in 1995, said to be worth up to $50,000 (£33,330), is among the lots of stage costumes, original paintings and handwritten notes set to go under the hammer at the Julien's Auctions sale in MACau, China on 9 October (10).
But the planned sale has infuriated longtime Jackson family spokesman Brian Oxman, who claims Jackson attempted to block the auction just weeks before his tragic death last year (09).
Oxman tells Britain's Daily Star, "This is an outrage. Back in May of 2009 there was to be an auction. Michael demanded it was stopped. He never wanted this material to be auctioned. As soon as Michael Jackson was dead, Julien's Auctions was negotiating again with estate representatives. That was the very auction that Michael Jackson paid a lot of money to stop. He would be furious. He would be turning in his grave. This was to be his legacy to his children, and the legacy of his children is being sold off."
Julien's Auctions boss Darren Julien says, "It's the best collection of Michael Jackson items that we've ever assembled and it all came to us from his family and from the friends he gave them to."

14 months gone and peole are STILL trying to make a buck off his name and legacy. How do they sleep at night? Do they feel no shame or is it the almightly dollar that drives them to the deepest recesses of hell? So tell me, what is left for the children to cherish? They loved their father deeply and he loved them - when are people going to back off. It's heart-wrenching.

The follwing you are about to look upon are the sayings of a Bodhisattva. Written down by a disciple Bikkhu. The reader or the readers are being saluted by "namaste".Isn't that a damn shame that the King of Pop had to pay money for his own stuff? So what went wrong?Why were people having these auctions? Weren't the Jackson family a happy rich family? Didn't have Michael had enough money to by whole wearhouses for his own stuff? So one has to start to wonder what ecxactly went wrong in this case?There was this storehouse full of Jacksons stuff. But the family got into legal troubles and couldn't pay. Why is that? No rich happy family? Full of troubles and s**t in that so called happy famous and rich life. Even the king couldn't get or his stuff back. Or at least paid a lot of money to stop it. How ironic and a damn shame. A damn shame that they let themselves be seduced by the misguidings of the demon Mara. It brings no happyness. Only temperally happiness and escape from the cycle of pain in life. If one let go to become spiritual, and live the permanent happy life. Then one can escape from the uncontrolled rebirth. Ohm shanti.

This is wrong to have this auction whhen they know Michael did everything he could to stop it. There is nothing but greed driving this forward.Michaels fans and family should work togeather to stop it. Is there someone out there who can help do this? If you truly loved Michael you will stop this from going forward
