In 2014, she auctioned it off at a fundraiser for L.A.’s Gay & Lesbian Center’s “An Evening with Women.” The winning bid was $15,000 and went to Aussie actress, model and singer Ruby Rose. Ruby, known for her look-alike Justin Bieber haircut, made the piano famous by posting a photo of herself sitting at the piano with six Bieber plates leaning against the stand.

In June 2015, Ruby Rose placed the piano for auction on eBay with the winning bid going for $13,000.00.
