As Michael Jackson’s old stuff fetched an impressive amount from bidders in China, Oprah Winfrey was chatting with his mom.
More than a year after his death, Michael Jackson’s old stuff fetched an impressive amount from bidders in China.
According to the Associated Press, a Saturday auction in southern China featuring about 100 pieces of Michael memorabilia earned more than $1 million.
Among the items up for bid was a basketball signed by the King of Pop and
Michael Jordan, which sold for $245,000. An online bidder bought one of the singer’s black crystal-encrusted gloves and an arm brace for $180,000. Michael donned the arm brace in a promotional video for HIStory
Michael’s things were a featured set of items in an auction, which also included memorabilia from Bruce Lee and Madonna.
While fans were busy outbidding each other for a piece of Michael’s life, Oprah Winfrey was taping a segment at his mother’s home, according to The New York Post.
There’s no word on why Oprah was taping at the Encino, California, compound, but it could be part of an episode about Katherine herself or Michael’s kids.
