Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Death Bed Removed From Auction

Michael Jackson's death bed has been removed from an upcoming auction at the request of the pop star's estate administrators.
The queen size bed frame, in which the Thriller singer spent his final hours, was among a number of Jackson-related items set to go under the hammer at Julien's Auctions on 17 December (11) but it will no longer be available.
In a statement on Tuesday (15Nov11), auction house boss Darren Julien clarified the actual mattress was never up for sale and now the bed's headboard won't go under the hammer either.
He explained, "No part of the bed remains for sale... Michael Jackson has played a major part in the history of Julien's Auctions and we would never do anything that is not in the best interests of Michael's children, his mother or the Estate. We will always honour these requests."
Items still up for bidding include various household possessions, antique furnishings and paintings.
It's not the first time Julien has been forced to pull Jackson items from sale events - an auction of furniture, clothing, vehicles and memorabilia from the late King of Pop's Neverland estate home in Santa Barbara, California was cancelled at the eleventh hour in the weeks after the singer's 2009 death following a request from legal officials representing the Jackson family.
