MICHAEL JACKSON'S " THRILLER " JACKET
Twiggy from MJHOAXLIVE and TRISTAN YATTA were in person at
Julian's Auction June 26th 2011.
We wanted to see and experience History in the making.
The sale of the iconic red "Thriller "jacket came exactly
two years after the King of Pop has been gone from our sight.
This past weekend's Julien's auction in Beverly Hills, California,
just might have been the most star-studded one in music history.
MJ, ONCE AGAIN STOLE THE SHOW.
" THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH "
The jacket from the "Thriller" video went for far more money than
everyone anticipated the estimation of between $200,000-$400,000.
Milton Verret The cool Texan gold trader put down a $1.8 million
Twiggy just so happened to be seated right behind Mr. Verret when
the sale went down.
Milton plans to do good by using the garment to raise money for
children's hospitals worldwide. Some of the proceeds will also
benefit the Shambala Preserve, where Jackson's two Bengal tigers,
the aptly named Thriller and Sabu, have resided for the past five
Verret bid in person against about 13 people from around the world.
" Like the Hope Diamond, There's nothing else in the world like it."
