Michael Jackson has failed in his bid to block an auction of his possessions from Neverland from taking place later this month.
Jackson filed a legal challenge in March in Los Angeles, that claimed that Julien's Auction House had "effectively stolen" his property.
Jackson wants the return of hundreds of items, including the wrought iron gates from Neverland and a white glove he wore in his 1983 Billie Jean video.
The auction is scheduled to take place from 22 April in Beverly Hills, and is expected to last 5 days.
However, a further court motion to stop the sale will be heard on 15 April.
