Popstar Mariah Carey wants to buy the sofa once owned by 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson and will bid for it at the auction of his possessions.
The Hero hitmaker has ordered her interior designer to place bids for a living room set owned by the late singer at the Michael Jackson Anniversary Day Auction, held by Julien's in Las Vegas, reported Contactmusic.
The set, which was purchased to be used in the London mansion the Thriller hitmaker was going to rent while undertaking his This Is It residency, is among a number of special items up for sale.
Other pieces that will go under the hammer include the glove worn by Michael on his 1984 Victory Tourand the last autograph he ever signed before his death of acute Propofol intoxication a year ago.
The auction has been opposed by the pop icon's brother Randy, who is adamant his superstar sibling didn't want it to go ahead.
"My bro stopped this auction before... I will do my best with Julien Auction House but I can only do so much. Ultimately my mom has the power to stop this, not me. This frustrates me. I know my brother wouldn't want this,(sic)" wrote Randy on his Twitter page.
