“We were sitting in the front room of his Beverly Hills home on Carolwood Drive with all my paintings out on the couches and chairs when I said, ‘Remember this one MJ?’ pointing to Billie Jean. MJ grabbed a black marker from the end table and said ‘One of my favorites’ and then wrote a message over the art.” -Nate Giorgio
