Michael Jackson's deathbed
The headboard to the bed where Michael Jackson died will not be auctioned off as originally planned, said the auctioneer hired by the late singer’s estate.

“We received a request from the estate,” said Darren Julien, of Julien’s Auctions.

The mattresses to the bed were never to be auctioned, as they were removed as evidence shortly after the singer died.

The Beverly Hills auction house will hold a public viewing Dec. 12 to 17 of the contents of the Holmby Hills house where Jackson died. The auction will take place Dec. 17 at the company’s gallery on Wilshire Boulevard.

Scheduled to be auctioned is everything from high-priced paintings to candles and silverware.

The bed frame is all that has been pulled, Julien said.

“Everything else will go on as scheduled,” he said.
