Milton Verret Buys Michael Jackson Thriller Jacket At Auction

Mr. Milton Verret, of Austin Texas, has purchased a red leather jacket, worn by the “King of Pop”, Michael Jackson, in his Thriller video, for nearly $2 million, at auction. Part of the money generated by the sale will go to the Shambala Preserve, in Acton, California, where two Bengal Tigers, “Thriller” and “Sabu”, that once resided with Mr. Jackson at his Neverland Ranch, are now kept.

Shambala is owned by actress Tippi Hedren, mother of actress Melanie Griffith. Ms. Hedren first gained fame in two Alfred Hitchcock films, The Birds and Marnie.
