Michael Jackson, dubbed the “King of Pop”, is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. Even in his death, the legendary musician continues to make headlines. The estate of Michael Jackson recently won a significant legal battle that prevents the prospective sale of items they claim were taken from the singer’s house shortly after his passing.
According to new legal documents obtained by TMZ, a judge reportedly ordered a preliminary injunction prohibiting Jeffre Phillips from selling any goods he allegedly removed from the home back in 2009. Phillips was engaged to one of MJ’s siblings.
Phillips utilized the commotion and grief surrounding Michael’s passing to steal a significant amount of personal and private goods from MJ’s Carolwood House. Michael’s estate asserted that his iPhone, California driver’s license, prescription pill bottles with pills inside, handwritten notes, and some clothes, including the pajamas Michael was wearing in the hours before his death inside the renowned estate, were all taken by Phillips during a nine-day stay at Carolwood House.
Additionally, according to Michael’s estate, Phillips stole a resuscitation tube that may have been applied to the King of Pop. The “Thriller” singer passed away on June 25th, 2009, at his Los Angeles home after suffering a lethal mix of drug overdoses prescribed by Conrad Murray, his personal doctor.
Michael is survived by his three children, Prince, Paris and Prince Michael II. Prince and Paris recently gave tribute to their father on the day that would have been Michael Jackson’s 64th birthday. We will be on the lookout for more updates. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
