Washington D.C, Feb 28 (ANI): Seven years after Michael Jackson’s death, it has been discovered that his ‘Gone with the Wind’ Oscar has actually gone with the wind.
The 1940 Best Picture statuette awarded to ‘Gone With the Wind’ producer David O. Selznick, which The late King of Pop had purchased for 1.54 million dollars in a Sotheby’s auction in 1999, is nowhere to be found.
Lawyer Howard Weitzman told The Hollywood Reporter that the estate does not know where the ‘Gone With the Wind’ statuette is, adding “We would like to have that Oscar because it belongs to Michael’s children. I’m hopeful it will turn up at some point.”
It is unclear whether the ‘Billie Jean’ hitmaker kept the statuette at his Neverland estate in California, the Los Angeles home he shared with children 19-year-old Prince Michael, 17-year-old Paris and 14-year-old Blanket, when he died, or at a storage facility.
As per the late star’s 2002 will, his children and his mother Katherine Jackson were named beneficiaries of the trust he established and left all his assets.
Michael’s famous Neverland ranch recently went up for sale for 100 million dollars. (ANI)
