Michael Jackson’s death bed is to go under the hammer at a macabre auction next month.
A number of the singer’s household furnishings, including the queen size bed in which the Thriller hitmaker took his last breath, will be sold off by Julien’s Auctions on 17 December.

It will be the second Jackson bed to be sold at auction in as many months – the carved mahogany sleeper where the late pop star dreamed of a career comeback during a 2006 stay at Coolatore House in County Westmeath, Ireland fetched $8,600 at an auction on Monday.

Meanwhile, the gated three-storey mansion, where the King of Pop spent the final months of his life, is also up for sale.

A listing price for the Los Angeles property has not yet been disclosed.

The house boasts six bedrooms, 10 fireplaces, a wine cellar, a fitness center and large pool.
