The Lisa Marie Tim Burton Garage Sale


Although the ultrasexy Lisa Marie has moved on to other lanky, brainy geeks, there is still buzz surrounding her and her former lover, Tim Burton, whom she met at the strip club "Goldfingers" (Averted Gaze). According to WorldofWonder:

"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 via Cherry Vanilla. '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."

Read the rest of the story here. Although Tinseltown is abuzz with news of the sale, Lisa has expressed a certain dislike for the town in the past, like in this Paper Magazine interview:

"'I don't like living in L.A.,' grouses Marie, who rents an apartment there that was once owned by Bette Davis. 'It's a terrible, one-dimensional town. I don't feel like I fit in or have been accepted by Hollywood. In New York, people respond to me. In L.A., not as much, or not at all.'"

Oh, they'll respond to the celebrity garage sale, Lisa Marie. That's what we predict at least. E! should get Joan and Melissa to cover it.

Here's the 411 via Cartoonbrew:

"Friday, March 11, Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13, 2005207 North Aspan Avenue Azusa, CA 917029:00am - 4:00pm(Absolutely No Early Previews or Early Sales)

I stumbled across your blog the other day after you left a comment on mine. I just want to say I'm really enjoying it.

How did they break up? Did Bonham Carter have anything to do with it?

Thanks Drew! Yeah re: Bonham, I think Tim just fell for the accent and dumped Lisa Marie. It was a very acrimonious split-up.
