Michael Jackson's Thriller Jacket Auction, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton Rumors, and Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' Wedding


Michael Jackson Thriller Jacket Sells for $1.2 Million

It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since the King of Pop died suddenly.

But, Michael Jackson obviously hasn’t been forgotten, considering the recent sale of his ‘Thriller’ jacket.

The iconic black and red leather jacket brought in a whopping $1.8 million dollars in a recent sale.

Milton Verret, an Austin, Texas commodities trader, shelled out the ridiculous amount of money during a sale at Beverly Hills’ Julien’s Auctions on June 26.  It was anticipated that the jacket would bring in anywhere from $200,000 to $400,000.

But, Verret must really, REALLY love MJ considering how much over that he ended up paying.

Even though Verret seems like a nut job for paying so much for a jacket, it’s at least good to know that it will be used as more than a decoration.  The jacket will soon be going on tour in order to raise money for a variety of children’s charities.

Are Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton Dating?prince harry pippa middleton

Bet you thought that after The Royal Wedding  you wouldn’t have to hear about the happenings across the pond 24-7 anymore.  Sure, talk has died down a bit.  But, the royals are still huge in the media.

The latest to provide fodder for the gossip mill is Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton.

Are they dating?  Do they really have sickening cute nicknames for each other?  Will they end up being the next to walk down the aisle?

No.  No.  And, no.  Well, maybe they have nicknames for each other that we don’t know about.  But, that doesn’t mean they are dating, right?

Prince Harry has squashed any rumors that he and the future queen’s sis are an item.  They may be friends, but he swears he’s single and plans to be that way for a while.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ Wedding

Are you tired of hearing about Kim Kardashian and her upcoming nuptials?  No? Good.  Then you’re going to love this one.

Kardashian and Kris Humphries have finally set a date for their wedding.  Don’t get too excited yet.  It’s still being kept under wraps, although some are saying that it may be sometime in the beginning of August.

Ok, so maybe the date isn’t being revealed yet.  But, other juicy tidbits are.
It’s being said that Kim’s wedding will be much different than that of her sister, Khloe.  And, the wedding will be aired on E! as a 2-hour special so that fans can feel as if they are there, too.

Sources have also said that the couple has been checking out private estates in LA.

Wonder how long they can manage to keep the details out of the news?
