Michael Jackson’s history of alleged sexual abuse continues to be a talk, even after his passing in 2009. The upcoming HBO documentary ‘Leaving Neverland,’ has managed to spark some questions, even though Jackson’s estate denies all claims against the King of Pop.
However, one of Jackson’s accusers, Wade Robson, raises eyebrows short after. Robson claimed he burned all memorabilia he owned belonging to the singer, but new reports by The Blast indicate he anonymously tried to pawn off some of these items in 2011.
Julien’s Auction, the auction house that once handled the bidding for Jackson’s items, responded to a fan question online asking if Robson’s items were real. “Wade consigned his collection to us directly. He was the person who we paid when we sold his collection. He needed the money,” the auction house said.
“Wade asked to remain anonymous and said that he did not want anyone to know that it was him selling it the items in 2011. But we did not agree to that and listed it as the Wade Robson collection. He consigned multiple items and wanted us to sell all items of his that had value,” they continued.
Two of Robson’s items were reportedly sold, which included black gloves from the “Bad” video and a fedora from the “Smooth Criminal” music video. The gloves sold for $31,250 while the hat went for $49,920, respectively.
Jackson’s estate has since filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO for airing the documentary, stating that Robson’s only in it for the money.
‘Leaving Neverland’ is set to air March 3rd & 4th on HBO.
