Wacko Jacko Auction Called Off

14 April 2009 |

If you had your eye on the gloves from "Edward Scissorhands" or the actual gates of Neverland Ranch, we have some disappointing news for you -- the auction of Michael Jackson's crazy stuff ain't happening.

As part of a settlement between Jackson's production company and Julien's Auction House, Jackson gets to keep the nearly 2,000 items that were to be auctioned off beginning next week.

Terms of the settlement are confidential, but the attorney for the auction house tells us "everyone is happy."

The auction house had previously said they spent $2 million organizing the sale and it was guessing the items could have fetched $12 million.

De La Hoya is Retiring



During a press conference on Tuesday, boxing champ Oscar De La Hoya announced his retirement from the sport.

According to De La Hoya:

    "After heartfelt discussions with my family and my closest friends, it is with deep gratitude and appreciation that I announce my retirement from professional boxing.

    Boxing has been the single, most consistent part of my life and although I will miss the ring, I know that it is time for me to step away from the sport competitively and become more active in the other aspects of it that are already in place and ready for me to pursue."

Oscar will now be working with the top execs at Golden Boy Promotions to help put together boxing events worldwide.

Even Los Angeles Mayor Antonia Villarigosa spoke out during the press conference adding that "Oscar de la Hoya has left an indelible legacy in and out of the ring. This son of East L.A. has made the City of Angels proud, not only for his ten championships in six weight divisions, but for never forgetting his roots and giving back to his community."

De La Hoya ended his speech by saying, "In closing, I want to acknowledge my wonderful wife Millie, my children and my entire family who have been extremely supportive and patient with me, sacrificing a tremendous amount of our time together in order for me to pursue my career. Now it is time for me to be there for them."

Adios, amigo!

Considering Brothers & Sisters star Balthazar Getty is a married man, and that's a naked Sienna Miller in the above pic, some may consider Sienna to be a home wrecker.

Trying to save her reputation, Sienna's friends are coming to her defense. One pal told the New York Post, "She and Balthazar met through friends and he was already separated from his wife." Another buddy said that Balthazar had been "sleeping on friends' couches for six months" before he hooked up with the naked lady.

Some reports claim that Balty is trying to get back together with his wife, while others say that he and Sienna are still hanging out.
