A collection of Michael Jackson's personal belongings have fetched almost $1 million (£625,000) at auction.
A variety of items from the Beat It hitmaker's home went under the hammer at Julien's Auctions on Saturday (17Dec11) and one of the evening's most sought-after pieces - an armoire with a hand-written message by Jackson - sold for $25,750 (£16,094).
A kitchen chalkboard where the star's children wrote "I love daddy" fetched $5,000 (£3,125) and a rug that laid beneath Jackson's death bed sold for $15,360 (£9,600), far above the auction house officials' estimated $400 (£250) to $600 (£375).
Julien's Auctions has previously worked with the Jackson estate on a number of other occasions - earlier this year (11) the group sold the entertainer's famous Thriller jacket for $1.8 million (£1.1 million).

I feel sorry for the biggest star in the world !! everything he worked for was taken and thrown to the winds by his promoters staff estate handlers and others that ruined his life including his "loving family" and fake friends!! wonder why his best friends never showed up for that weird funeral?? and now they are still using his name to make more money off him! what a disgrace!!!
