Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, the late great Michael Jackson's iconic red and black jacket—the one he wore in the video for his blockbuster hit Thriller—is up for auction. The jacket is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $400,000 at Julien's Auction later this month, TMZ reports. "The jacket is one of several MJ items featured in the Julien's Auction event on June 25 and 26. Among the more interesting pieces—the wig Michael wore at his 'This Is It' news conference in London and a glove he wore at the American Music Awards." [TMZ]
