We've all seen that clip from Living with Michael Jackson where he goes bananas buying stuff in Las Vegas. Jackson didn't limit his spending sprees to tacky furniture. Oh no.

This image from Japanese tv shows that a then-34-year-old Jackson allegedly spent over half a million dollars at a London toy store on video games (the image says "computer games") and children's picture books. Cheaper than buying a killer whale! But, really, can you imagine spending that much on video games and picture books? We can't.

As we posted back in February, Jackson's taste in arcade cabinets was both impressive and insane. Insanely impressive?

Most child actors, child geniuses, child performers, child anything really, have fucked up adulthoods. They try to re compensate for the time lost in being a child through such displays. This is especially true for those children thrust in to the public spotlight.

Michael Jackson is no exception.
