Pete Wentz hopes to buy a golf cart emblazoned with Michael Jackson's image when the singer's possessions come up for auction next month
Pete Wentz wants to buy Michael Jackson's golf cart.
The Fall Out Boy rocker - whose band covered Michael's hit 'Beat It' last year - was amazed to hear Michael was planning to auction off some of his possessions next month, and is determined to get his hands on a piece of memorabilia.
He said: "I want that golf cart which has him dressed up with Peter Pan on the front of it!"
Despite being delighted his idol is planning a series of shows at London's O2 Arena in July, Pete is worried the performances could be an elaborate hoax.
He told BBC Newsbeat: "It's kind of amazing to have a chance to see him again - I'll come to London to do it.
"Have you seen the movie 'The Prestige'? I think there is potential that this is all part of the act, part of the illusion that he will be out onstage and be dancing like the same old Michael and that he has everybody tricked. I think that anything is possible with it."
