Michael Jackson challenges auction of Thriller's award
Los Angeles (PTI): King of Pop Michael Jackson has filed a law suit against Julien's Auction House for putting up thousands of his personal items under the hammer without his permission.

The pop singer has demanded that the scheduled event be stopped and his belongings be returned, reported E!Online.

As per the auctioneer's website, the "Once in a Lifetime Auction," is to take place online and at the Beverly Hilton between April 22-25.

The five-day was to feature more than 2,000 of Jackson's personal items, including his American Music Award for "Thriller," a velvet cape given to him by his children for Father's Day in 1998, a pair of rhinestone-trimmed socks and a basketball signed by Michael Jordan among others.

Jackson's complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims that the auction house has "effectively stolen Michael Jackson's personal property" and has refused to return any of it "despite repeated demands."

The CEO of the organisation Darren Julien had spoken to Jackson's manager Tohme Tohme, and reportedly hadbeen informed that the sale would take place only after the singer signed the inventory himself.

According to the suit, Julien had assured Tohme that Jackson would be consulted before they went ahead with the auction, but continued with the proceedings without waiting for the "Thriller" singer's final word.
