Over 20,000 personal belongings of former pop singer Michael Jackson will be auctioned off at the end of this month.

The collection of items, purchased by Richard Altomare from an ex-business partner of Jackson, also included bizarre sex toys and paintings of nude young boys which the former had initially planned not to auction.

However, when Jackson got a temporary restraining order from the court in order to prevent his stuff from being sold, Altomare threatened to put the naughty stuff for sale too.

This apparently made Jackson change his mind about blocking the auction, and according to reports, he has now worked out an agreement with Altomare over the auctioning of his belongings.

The singer will not fight his legal battle over the issue anymore, and in return, he will be allowed to take 20 items from the auction first, probably the nasty ones.

"Mr. Jackson is satisfied with the negotiated settlement," TMZ quoted his spokesperson as saying.
