Ya and she gets no attention on her Twitter page LOL. Well until now, I bet she'll be surprised at the sudden attention she'll get in a couple of hours.....not the attention she's looking for but still.....

I already messaged L.A archives on FB, still waiting for the answer, but if I remember correctly it was Kim who already had sold his socks... so....

Here are screenshots from a woman I follow on Twitter, she asked LA archives if this is legit and this is their answer:

LOL!
I think it’s a joke.
But even if it isn’t, she’s not killing anyone, you guys. I mean, it’s harmless.
And I bet it’ll reach high bids if true. I’d buy it if it was real and I were wealthy!

The thing is, that it is kinda disrespectful and does make her look like she's desperate for money, like, you wanna write a book, I don't care, selling hair of your former and deceased boss makes you look like a creep.

Hair to me would be downright creepy. Way too personal selling a piece of somebody's body, though im sure it happens often.

Maaaaaaaan, I met Kim last April, and she was so nice! I was really looking forward to her book. Now, my interest is gone.

This one I agree is just wrong on many levels. Someone needs to post a gif of Prince shaking his head sad mad

I dont believe P told Kim she could save his hair and then auction it off.
I'm done with her.

Yes, it's a real auction, but Kim pulled the comb and hair out of the auction due to massive backlash from Prince fans.

Thank goodness.

She'll be trying to sell it somewhere else though.

No one has posted a link to the actual auction or that account. Its all 3rd, 4th hand info. Make of it as you see fit.

Seems like a small time operation to me, and their webpage is not very well set up either.

Thanks for the link. Im still not seeing Kim's name tied to anything. Even the other items for Prince are different. Oh well. Its a gorgeous suit though.

If Kim had nothing to do with this she should say so. Especially since the auctioneer is claiming she was involved. Silence says to me those items came from her. Sorry Kim, I’m done with you. Not buying her book either.

As far as associates in general, there’s lots of associates not pulling crap like this. Many who are totally respectful of his legacy. Kim disappoints me. I thought she was one of the good ones not someone who would offer up his socks and hair for auction.
