London: Furniture containing personal messages of Michael Jackson and his kids from the house which the pop legend rented before he died have been put up for auction.

The ‘Thriller’ hitmaker’s children had written the phrase “I love Daddy” twice on a tiny blackboard in the kitchen, substituting the word “love” for a childish heart symbol, and underneath it was the merry phrase – “Smile, it’s for free.”

Another item is an armoire, which the late superstar had scribbled across the mirror as an assertion of will, which read – “Train, perfection, March, April, Full Out, May!”

A representative for Julien’s Auctions, who are holding the sale said that the singer wrote the inspirational message to himself to give him motivation for his anticipated ‘This Is It’ tour, the Daily Mail reported.
According to TMZ.com, these personal messages were not intended to be shared with the public, but the items have been listed for auction on December 17.

Among the items for sale, are upholstered chairs smudged with Jackson’s makeup and the deathbed, which looks out to an expansive back garden surrounded by tall trees with a large swimming pool and a pool house, where the King of Pop’s son Prince carved his name on a candle.
