The widely advertised warehouse sale of items belonging to the no-longer-together Tim Burton and Lisa Marie, which are to be sold next Friday and have everyone going ape-shit for possible ape suits is not what it seems. Burton, who is not involved in the sale, is furious. It’s strictly ex-girlfriend Lisa Marie getting rid of stuff he gave her over the years or just left behind when they broke up. Their split was not amicable.
“It recently came to my attention that a warehouse sale claiming to include ‘previously-owned’ items of mine is scheduled to take place,” Burton tells us. “Allegedly, these items include props, memorabilia, and costumes from various films I have directed, as well as some drawings of mine that were private gifts – never meant for public display or purchase. Since I have not been contacted by the sellers, it is important to note that I can in no way vouch for the authenticity of these items. I am completely against the selling of personal items in such a public way.”
