Michael Jackson – Art Collector

Michael Jackson "Leave Me Alone."

Is Michael Jackson’s art collection with $900 million? Well, maybe not.

Dylan Howard of Star magazine writes: Michael Jackson secretly left behind an almost billion-dollar secret art fortune that is now at the center of an international tug of war, Star has exclusively learned.

But not so fast:

Ashton Cooper of ArtInfo.com writes: When the news broke recently that Michael Jackson had a $900 million art collection, most people probably had the same reaction: Michael Jackson had a $900 million art collection?! Furthermore, all but the most fanatical of Jackson fans were probably unaware that the late singer was himself a visual artist.

And the appraiser?

    I have a feeling Michael Jackson’s art collection being worth $900 million is like those people on “Hoarders” claiming their piles of old handbags and broken sewing machines “are worth thousands and thousands of dollars!”

    Mr. Jackson once helped himself to some of the photographer whose work I archive, Phil Stern’s, photographs, promising to return them. It took years and no sale was ever made.
