In possibly some of the creepiest tidings to reach us in quite some time - YOU, assuming you're totally bats, could find yourself in posession of Michael Jackson's soiled undergarments.

It gets more bizarre. The pants (which are Calvin Klein, if you must know) are to be auctioned and have a reserve price of $1million. What MANIAC would spend that amount on a pair of dirty pants sported by Michael Jackson?

The New York Post have come across with yet more alarming news about the "unwashed" pants: "They were part of the evidence confiscated in 2003 by then-Santa Barbara DA Tom Sneddon, who wanted a DNA sample for his unsuccessful child-molestation case against the washed-up King of Pop. The briefs are part of a stash of Jacko artifacts offered by New Jersey businessman Henry Vacarro, who obtained them in a bankruptcy case. For extra authenticity, the briefs come sealed in an evidence bag and wrapped with police tape. Also being sold are the Gloved One's handwritten note explaining why he wants an annulment from Lisa Marie Presley and a used half-ounce tube of skin-bleaching cream."

Honestly, I can just about understand forking over a million quid for a lone, bejeweled fingerless glove - at least you could wheel that out at parties. But unwashed pants that've been incubating in a plastic bag for over five years?

The collection of dubious Jackson swag will be auctioned on eBay tomorrow.
