(CBS/AP) The bed where pop superstar Michael Jackson died is no longer for sale.

Julien's Auctions has removed the queen-sized headboard from its auction of items from 100 N. Carolwood Drive, Jackson's last residence.

Darren Julien, the company's president, clarified Tuesday that the mattress was never up for auction -- only the carved headboard seen in evidence photos during the trial of Jackson's physician Dr. Conrad Murray. Julien removed the headboard from the sale at the request of Jackson's estate.

Murray was convicted last week of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. The day Murray was convicted, Julien's Auctions announced that it would sell the contents of the Jackson's rented mansion where he lived while preparing for his "This is It" comeback tour.

The auction of art, furnishings and other items from the home where Jackson lived with his three children is set for Dec. 17.
