Court order: Obama not allowed to keep Michael Jackson's sparkly glove

Who knew President Barack Obama was in possession of a bunch of memorabilia of the late Michael Jackson?

In October, the Obama administration took hold of some $71 million in seized assets from the son of an African dictator. Among the yachts, cars, jets and a $30 million mansion in Malibu, the items included $1.8 million worth of Jackson memorabilia, attained when Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of the president of Equatorial Guinea, went on a celebrity memorabilia splurge inside the U.S.

The King of Pop memorabilia includes a sequined glove that Jackson wore on his "Bad" world tour in the late '80s.

Obama doesn't get to keep it, though. A California judge has ordered the Obama administration to give it all back because the African dictator they took it from hasn't actually been convicted of a crime.

Who's bad? Apparently not Mr. Mangue.
