LONDON: Pop icon Michael Jackson's famous white glove has sold for more than 85,000 pounds (Rs 79,51,701) at an auction in Texas.

The singer wore the crystal-studded glove many times on stage and in music videos of his popular songs including "Billie Jean".

The piece was also a part of Jackson's stage-wear during the Bad Tour (1987-1989).

According to The Sun, the anonymous buyer received a letter confirming the piece was donated to UNICEF in 1998, alongside an envelope from the MJJ production company founded by Jackson.

"I felt one glove was cool. Wearing two seemed so ordinary," Jackson had said about the glove.

It was reported last week, Jackson once owned alligators that died in a fire in the zoo of 'Tiger King' documentary-series subject Joe Exotic.
