Burton Stars In Revenge Auction

Subscribe to Tim Burton alerts

Movie director Tim Burton is at the centre of a real-life revenge drama this weekend (13MAR05) after discovering his former fiancee Lisa Marie is auctioning off his most prized possessions behind his back.

The acclaimed Edward Scissorhands movie-maker walked out of his eight-year relationship with Marie in 2001, after falling for his Planet Of The Apes co-star Helena Bonham Carter.

But since moving out, many of his possessions have been stored in a warehouse - to which his former beau Marie had the key.

Burton claims he had no idea the items were going under the hammer, and was devastated when he was finally told about the sale, reports British newspaper DAILY STAR ON SUNDAY.

Collectors at the Los Angeles sale will be able to snap up props from film sets, designer clothes, fine crystal and TIFFANY silver.
