Jacko's dirty Y-fronts up for sale
Michael Jackson's dirty underwear has been put up for auction, reports Bang Showbiz. A pair of white Calvin Klein briefs, with a 28-inch waist, will be put up for sale on eBay with a reserve price of… you wont believe this… $1 million! The underpants were part of the evidence confiscated from the singer's home in 2003 by Tom Sneddon, who was the then District Attorney for Santa Barbara, as part of the child molestation charges launched against the reclusive star. It is said the underwear was used to get a DNA sample of the 50-year-old pop star - who was later acquitted of all charges. They are not the only Jackson item up for grabs in the auction. New Jersey businessman Henry Vaccaro, who obtained a variety of memorabilia in a bankruptcy case, is also offering fans the chance to get their hands on a handwritten note to ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley explaining why he wants an annulment, as well as a used tube of skin-bleaching cream. Hopefully some super-rich kind soul will part with his millions and buy Jacko's underwear only to burn the thing and rid the world of its very existence.
