Cape Town – The Prodigy's Keith Flint was found dead in his home earlier this year by police. The band was formed in 1990 by keyboard player Liam Howlett. Keith joined the group as a dancer and a vocalist. 

Now it has been revealed that the star owed roughly £7.3 million (around R136 295 171) in debts and taxes when he died at the age of 49.   

To pay off the debt, his personal belongings have been divided into 170 lots and can be brought by the highest bidder at an auction in November according to The Mirror. 

According to NME, the eclectic collection that is up for grabs includes music awards, clothing and furniture. The auction will take place in Cambridge at Cheffins Fine Art Auctioneers.

According to the BBC, while speaking ahead of the auction, Martin Millard, director at the auctioneers, said: "The sale is full of interesting items which give an insight into Keith's personal life and highlight the difference between his stage persona and his private life."
