Pop veteran George Michael is furious after learning his estranged cousin is selling memorabilia on internet auction site EBAY.COM.

The AMAZING singer - who used to be close to ANDROS GEORGIOU - cut ties with his relative around the time of his arrest in Los Angeles for lewd conduct in 1998. It is believed Georgiou's reaction to the incident infuriated Michael.

And now the pair are no longer close, Georgiou - who used to run his record label AEGEAN RECORDS - is making money from items he has put up on eBay via his wife JACKIE.

Among the items on sale are rare records, clothes and signed artifacts. So far Georgiou has made $405 (GBP225) from a signed Jean Paul Gaultier jacket and a letter to George from actress Jodie Foster on the subject of abortion.
