Drip & Draining Michael Jackson

IV drip and fluid bag that was “in the arms” of Michael Jackson on his deathbed sells at auction for an astounding sum

If you thought it weird that a chair made specially for the ‘Elephant Man’ Joseph Merrick sold for £6,000 ($7,645, €6,571 or درهم28,076) at an auction in 2014, you’ll be even more astounded to learn that a Braun a blood stained IV drip that was “in the arms” of Michael Jackson on his deathbed sold today for £3,761 ($4,792, €4,119 or درهم17,599).

 

Plainly bought by someone quite odd, the “controversial piece” was offered by the deceased pop star’s cousin Marsha Stewart and of it, this equally twisted woman remarked:

 

“Shortly after Michael died I went to the house on Sunset. I was able to go in and go to the bedroom. When I went in the bedroom there was a bed there with some juice, it looked like a sandwich… and I noticed this. This was over by the stand and what I did was took it and put it in my purse. This actually belonged to Michael Jackson and it had some white like milk fluid inside of it, which later on dissolved, but this is actually Michael’s DNA on it – that’s what made me grab it, the blood. This was one of the IVs – the last actually – he had in his arm when he died.”

 

Of the item, a spokesman for auctioneers Ask Memorabilia Expert who only goes by the name ‘Kieta’ told Meaww.com:

 

“This is the IV bag that was taken from Michael Jackson’s room after he passed and it’s important to note that this has come directly from Michael’s cousin. It’s from Joe Jackson’s estate the provenance is really important with this piece.”

 

“For me I feel that with Michael Jackson we have to embrace all of him, that’s his iconic pop status as well as the troubles that he had with addictions and not being able to sleep, pushing himself to perform for his fans and his artistry. The IV bag – although maybe morbid to some – I don’t see it as that I embrace it as part of Michael Jackson.”

 

“Addiction is close to many families – it knows no age, race, gender. The IV bag is significant to Michael Jackson and how he ended up dying. It is a controversial piece but it’s still part of Michael.”

 

Reporting on the sale – which also included Joe Jackson’s dentures – the Mirror cornily remarked: “[This] appears to be an attempt to cash in and drain every last bit of income from the global singing star.” We’ll go further: It’s nothing but BAD and a sick reminder of BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR.

  1. Pretty SICK, there are people with no morals as long as there is a dollar to be made.
    I’m amazed this person wasn’t charged with tampering with evidence anyway.
