A football signed by David Beckham and a Buddhist scripture hand copied by Andy Lau are among over 1,000 personal belongings of late Cantopop legend Anita Mui which will go under the hammer on Saturday.
HONG KONG: Over 1,000 personal belongings of late Cantopop legend Anita Mui will go under the hammer in Hong Kong on Saturday, reported Hong Kong media.
Among the items on auction are a football signed by former football star David Beckham (of whom she was a fan), a Buddhist scripture hand-copied by her close friend Andy Lau, and the various award trophies she has won over the course of her career.
The auction is held by the management of Mui’s trust fund, as her luxury residence on Shouson Hill Road had been sold for HK$147 million (S$23.7 million), which means there will no longer be a place to house her personal belongings.
The proceeds of the sale will go to Mui’s trust fund, which pays for the living expenses of Mui’s mother.
Over the past ten years, Mui’s properties and personal effects have been steadily auctioned off.
First to go were her overseas properties, followed by her jewelry which raised HK$6.8 million (S$1.09 million) at a 2011 auction.
Her Shouson Hill Road residence was sold last month.
Mui entered showbiz in 1982 and was one of the brightest stars in the Hong Kong entertainment industry, until she lost her battle with cervical cancer on December 30, 2003 at the age of 40.
