London: Popstar Mariah Carey wants to buy the sofa once owned by `King of Pop` Michael Jackson and will bid for it at the auction of his possessions.

The `Hero` hitmaker has ordered her interior designer to place bids for a living room set owned by the late singer at the Michael Jackson Anniversary Day Auction, held by
Julien`s in Las Vegas, reported Contactmusic.

The set, which was purchased to be used in the London mansion the `Thriller` hitmaker was going to rent while undertaking his `This Is It` residency, is among a number of special items up for sale.

Other pieces that will go under the hammer include the glove worn by Michael on his 1984 `Victory Tour` and the last autograph he ever signed before his death of acute Propofol intoxication a year ago.

The auction has been opposed by the pop icon`s brother Randy, who is adamant his superstar sibling didn`t want it to go ahead.

"My bro stopped this auction before... I will do my best with Julien Auction House but I can only do so much. Ultimately my mom has the power to stop this, not me. This
frustrates me. I know my brother wouldn`t want this,(sic)" wrote Randy on his Twitter page.
