One of the two Michael Jackson accusers featured in HBO documentary Leaving Neverland attempted to turn a profit rfom the King of Pop’s name, according to The Blast.

In the final minutes of the doc, Wade Robson is seen burning a sequined glove and a jacket that were allegedly from Jackson’s Thriller video. This led fans to question the validity of the items, and Julien’s Auctions responded to those inquiries. Although the auction house made no mention of the items Robson burned, it did confirm the alleged victim attempted to sell several authentic items anonymously.

“Wade consigned his collection to us directly. He was the person who we paid when we sold his collection. He needed the money,” the company wrote.

It added, “Wade asked to remain anonymous and said that he did not want anyone to know that it was him selling it the items in 2011. But we did not agree to that and listed it as the Wade Robson collection. He consigned multiple items and wanted us to sell all items of his that had value.”

According to the Julien’s website, Robson provided it with
 a pair of black spandex fingerless forearm gloves from the Bad music video and a fedora from the music video for Smooth Criminal. The items were sold for $49,920 and $31,250, respectively.

This revelation has led some fans to believe Robson participated in the documentary accusing Jackson of child molestation for financial gain; however, he and director Dan Reed claim he was not compensated.

The Jackson estate is now taking legal action against HBO over the doc and filed a $100 million lawsuit against the network last week.
