LOS ANGELES — Costumes worn by Michael Jackson commanded hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction, and Lady Gaga was among the collectors.

Gaga tweeted Sunday that she bought 55 pieces in the sale administered by Julien’s Auctions and said she plans to keep the items “archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery and fans worldwide.”


Auctioneer Darren Julien said the jacket Jackson wore during his “Bad” tour fetched $240,000. Two of Jackson’s crystal-encrusted gloves sold for more than $100,000 each, as did other jackets and performance costumes.

The auction featuring the collection of Jackson’s longtime costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush raised more than $5 million. Some proceeds benefited Guide Dogs of America and Nathan Adelson Hospice of Las Vegas.

Lady Gaga, Models Wear Michael Jackson’s Old Clothes at Philip Treacy

Yes, that is the real jacket from the “Thriller” video. Master miliner Philip Treacy marked his comeback to the London runways this weekend with models complementing their crazy Treacy caps in costumes from Michael Jackson’s actual wardrobe, lent to Treacy by one of the King of Pop’s stylists. That’s so baller that we hardly even noticed that Lady Gaga walked the show in a cotton candy pink veil—we were just so frickin’ distracted by the insanity of Alek Wek rocking a jewel-encrusted Jackson glove on the side of her head while wearing one of Michael’s signature ankle-skimming suits and a red shirt that nothing else in the world even mattered.

Lady Gaga to rescue Michael Jackson's Neverland
Singer sets sights on Californian ranc


OVER the past few years LADY GAGA has invested a huge chunk of her millions in showbiz memorabilia.
Now the crackpot singer has set her sights on the ultimate celebrity possession — MICHAEL JACKSON’s ranch.

Neverland would be a great place to show off her other buys — JUDY GARLAND’s Wizard Of Oz ruby slippers, a posh frock worn by DAPHNE GUINNESS and 55 of Jacko’s most personal items she recently bought in auction.
A source said: “Lady Gaga is obsessed with Michael. She’s become good friends with his sister LATOYA and would love more than anything else to restore Neverland to its original state.

“His kids are all desperate to hold on to their childhood home so they can decide what they want to do with it properly when they’ve grown up.
“Gaga would love to help with the financial costs by buying a share.”
She was due to support Jacko in London before he died in 2009.

Speaking to DAVID LETTERMAN after Jackson’s death, she said: “There was some talk about the openers doing duets with Michael on stage.
“But Michael’s death was devastating for me regardless of whether I was supposed to go on tour with him.”
The estate sits on 3,000 acres of land in California and was once a sight to behold.
Jacko bought it in 1988 and installed his own rail track, a petting zoo and a fairground.

But when he got into financial difficulties in 2008 the investment group Sycamore Valley Ranch Company bought his $23million mortgage.
Even though they hold a big stake in the company, Michael’s three kids — PRINCE MICHAEL, PARIS and BLANKET — and mum, KATHERINE, also own a share.
A cash injection from a pop star like Gaga could just see them through their teenage years until their trust funds are triggered and they can buy it back.
Then again, they could follow the Hollywood tradition and spunk the lot going bananas on Sunset Strip.
