EXCLUSIVE Westlife star to splash cash at King of Pop sale
WESTLIFE star Shane Filan is planning to splash out thousands at Michael Jackson's personal memorabilia auction.
We can reveal the Flying Without Wings singer, 29, has lined up a private viewing of Jacko's possessions ahead of the auction in America next month.
Jackson fanatic Shane is eyeing up a silver sequinned glove and black fedora hat that the pop icon wore during live performances.
He told the Irish Daily Mirror last night: "I've always been a huge fan and I have my eye on a couple of items. I'd love the hat or one of the gloves but there's a few interesting things on sale. I can't really say more than that but I have a big interest in it."
Jacko is expected to make millions from the sale and the collection will have it's world exclusive preview at this weekend.
Shane has contacted organisers and has eyed up a number of items in the extensive auction catalogues that have been issued.
The auction will be staged at the Beverly Hills Hilton over three days next month with a hoard of celebrities expected to bid for items.
Shane is unlikely to travel to the US for the auction but will instead place bids with the help of two assistants.
The singer has been a Jacko fanatic since he was six and even included a Michael Jackson medley on their last tour.Source:
