The hammer will leave a red Christian Dior cardigan and helmet for riding from Swarovski. “Everything associated with Michael Jackson is extraordinary, and to own something so incredibly historic, as the shoes worn by Michael during his first lunar walk is especially nice. We are honored to offer them for auction,” — said the head of the auction house GWS CNN Brigitte Kruse. The starting price of this pair of shoes is 10 thousand dollars.

While the artist presented an extraordinary move, it has already appeared on the streets. The dance was born as a movement break-dance. It was created by black men who were on the streets. They showed Michael Foundation, which he improved with time and training. To the question: “Who taught him to dance” — Michael always replied the same: “Training”.

However, not all of the revered artist’s work, exposing the legendary items to the auction and performing his songs. Despite the fact that the legend of pop music Michael Jackson died in 2009, there are people who want to sue his identity. Famous choreographer Wade Robson has accused Michael Jackson of harassment. The claim came in a California court, but after a while, the application was rejected. It was agreed that entities controlled by the Michael Jackson Estate, are not responsible for the alleged sexual abuse by the contractor.

The claim was rejected for reasons of expiration of the four-year period established by law. “The plaintiff has not initiated a dispute on this action after his 26th year (under California law, a victim of ill-treatment of children may make a complaint to 26 years), — the judge told Mitchell, Beckloff. — Today, the plaintiff is 35 years old, he was 30 years old when he filed a lawsuit…the plaintiff filed his statement 4 years later, at the end of the Statute of limitations.”

The case was opened 4 years ago. Robson filed a lawsuit against the artist, claiming that he was sexually abused by Jackson for nearly a decade, and his company contributed to this behavior. In 2015, the suit was dismissed by the court under the will, but the defendants still have two companies — MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures.

“The company of Michael Jackson believes that the court made the correct decision to reject the claims of Wade Robson, — reads the statement of the lawyer of the company. – In my opinion, the allegations of Mr. Robson, made twenty years after they allegedly occurred, and years later, after Mr. Robson testified twice under oath — including in front of a jury is that Michael Jackson never did anything too bad to him, has always been a question of money, rather than finding the truth.”
