Michael Jackson Auction Called Off

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/01/28/Jackson.Thriller/art.jackson.landis.gi.jpg]

About 2,000 items owned by the King of Pop are being taken off the auction block.

The contents of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch were going to be up for sale at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills later this month.

But late today the auction organizer told CNN the sale is called off. Jackson sued the auction company claiming he did not authorize the sale of items removed from Neverland after he sold the property.

The auction house tells us they're “very happy with the settlement.” Fans who still want to see Jackson's goods in person can check out the exhibit in Beverly Hills through April 25th and then the items are returned to Jackson.

Check out what's off the auction block here.

    I bid 26 cents, and that's my final offer.

    Anderson is going to be so disappointed that this auction was called off.

    I looked through the second catalog and my mother-in-law would have loved this auction. I couldnt' help but think though that it all looked like it had come out of a museum – a French one at that or a French castle.

    Burning alot of calories just to show you don't care about this story.

    And way to presume why people use a social networking site.

    Glenn needs a life! LOL why are you criticizing simple news. And with a multi milliondollar business like twitter out there, there must be a whole lot of people with no life. Hell Warren Buffet has a twitter! Lighten up and eat a piece of chocolate!

    It's about time they do an auction. I just hope there's a charity that will benefit from it. I would like to disagree though about what was said about Twitter. It is for everybody, but especially those who are in a time crunch. It is a lot of things aside from being just another social networking site. I just hope that thought and research would have been done first before making stupid comments.

    I could care less about Michael Jackson. Twitter is for anyone who doesn't have a life. It's not what Ashton Kutcher says, but that he's the one saying it. The pirates were killed yesterday. Why is there no news of substance?
