Sorry, Michael Jackson fans. The crystal glove worn in the "Billie Jean" video -- and many more artifacts from his years as the so-called King of Pop -- is no longer up for grabs. An auction of Jackson's assets from his Neverland estate near Santa Barbara was canceled Tuesday, after Jackson and a Beverly Hills auction house reached an agreement that the items would not be sold.

Michael Jackson's glittery glove is going on the auction block. The glove, which inspired countless copycats, quips and Halloween costumes after it was unveiled in the 1983 video for Jackson's hit "Billie Jean," will be part of a five-day auction next April, Julien's Auctions said Wednesday. Jackson is also unloading the grandiose gates that once led to his Neverland Ranch, along with more than 2,000 other personal items.

Michael Jackson's famous white glove sold for $350,000 at a memorabilia auction Saturday, soaring far past pre-sale estimates, and a black jacket he wore during a 1989 world tour fetched $225,000. The Jackson memorabilia was the highlight of an auction of hundreds of rock 'n' roll items, including many not associated with the King of Pop, who died in June. Darren Julien, chief executive of Julien's Auctions, which ran the sale, called the glove "the Holy Grail of Michael Jackson," and many expected it to sell for far more than its pre-sale estimate of about $50,000.

The queen bed where pop star Michael Jackson took his last breath? It could be all yours. So too a chalkboard from the late singer's kitchen, on which, in children's scrawl, is written "I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it's for free. " Then there's a bedroom armoire where Jackson, preparing for his comeback tour, wrote a message to himself: "TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May," it reads. The entire contents from the 54,000-square foot Holmby Hills home where Jackson spent the last months of his life — from silverware and candles, desks and sofas, to a painting by French artist Maurice Utrillo — will be auctioned in December in Beverly Hills.

Lady Gaga got a little bad over the weekend in Los Angeles. Actually, she got rather a lot of "Bad. " Gaga was among the bidders Sunday when Julien's Auctions sold off a number of costumes worn by Michael Jackson, including the jacket he wore on his "Bad" tour, and a couple of his trademark crystal-encrusted white gloves. And she took home quite a few pieces of the action in an auction that generated about $5 million. "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide," she tweeted Sunday.

Snow jumps to NBC ABC News anchor Kate Snow is defecting to NBC News, where she will be a correspondent for "Dateline," NBC announced Friday. Since 2004, Snow has co-anchored the weekend edition of ABC's "Good Morning America," a position viewed as a steppingstone to an assignment on the weekday edition of the morning show. But when "GMA" configured its team late last year after the departure of Diane Sawyer, the job of news anchor went to Juju Chang. "She's the whole package," "Dateline" executive producer David Corvo said of Snow in a statement.

"Somebody got a real deal," said Margaret Barrett, director of Bonhams' entertainment memorabilia department. "Once people have passed away, the items become more valuable."
