Michael Jackson’s pyjamas & bed sold at Irish auction

On the same day that Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, some of the music legend’s items raised big money at an auction in Ireland.

The BBC reports a set of silk pyjamas and a bed in which the late singer once slept have been sold at an Irish auction for a total of 8,900 euros (approx. $12,200 US).

An American entertainment company bought the star's pyjamas for 2,700 euros ($3,700 US), while a mahogany bed he slept in was sold to an undisclosed Irish bidder for 6,200 euros ($8.500 US).

Both the nightwear and the carved bed were used by Jackson when he stayed at Coolatore House near Moate, County Westmeath, five years ago; he and his children were there for several months while he recorded at Grouse Lodge studios in 2006.
