The queen-sized bed is among many of items that are being sold from the Holmby Hills, California, mansion where the King of Pop died two years ago.

The event will take place next month and is being held by Julien’s Auctions who will also sell off lots of the late star’s personal items.

TMZ are reporting that the bed is still in good condition but that the linens have been changed.

Other items on the auction block include a mirror from the Thriller star’s “inner sanctum” which was a private bedroom that no one else in the home was allowed to enter.

The mirror had a message that Michael had scribbled on it for himself as he prepared for his This Is It concert tour.

“TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May,” a rep from Julien’s says it reads.

A chalkboard in the home’s kitchen which has, “I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free,” is expected to raise more than $400.

The auction will take place on December 17 where various antique furnishings, paintings and sculptures that surrounded Michael at the rented abode will be sold off.

Michael’s former physician Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty on Monday of the involuntary manslaughter of the singer after giving him a fatal dose of powerful anesthetic drug Propofol, to help the singer sleep. Murray will be sentenced later this month.

The rented mansion on North Carolwood Drive which was the singer’s last home, is also up for sale for an undisclosed price. Michael lived there with his three children from December 2008 to when he died six months later.
