Jackson Death Certificate

7/7/2009 11:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've obtained a copy of Michael Jackson's death certificate. On cause of death, it says "deferred."

Jackson Death Certificate

It does say Forest Lawn Cemetery was a "temporary" disposition of the body. As we first reported the body will not go back to Forest Lawn. Final burial is pending at an unknown location.

Jackson's occupation is listed as "musician." The type of business is "entertainment." Years in occupation -- 45.

As for race, the word "black" is written.

The informant -- the person who gave the information for the death certificate -- is listed as La Toya Jackson.

The place of residence is not listed as the Holmby Hills home -- rather, it's listed as his parents' home in Encino.

First whores!    

Why would they live in Encino??? Did they never see the Pauley Shore classic Encino Man? Seems like they would live in a better part of L.A.

In time, we will probably find out that the accusations were a big sham....a great money making scheme...i don't believe any of it ever happened. It was all about the money, which is what it will always be about. When you are in the public eye, you will be attacked. it is a fact of life, a sad one. But they can never take away the beautiful music, the beautiful images we have of him. Some people get great joy from the tragedy of others. Those are the people who truly have no life.

You know something all you people in the media who broke Michael Jackson down with all the drive by media crap with all the actuations of the molestations from the lying kids and the parents who have no morals in life what so ever, to help your kids orchestrate the lies for money the biggest payday ever they will have in lifetimes at the cost of destroying the life Michael Jackson who was Acquitted of all charges by a jury but convicted by public opinion, he has spent the rest of his life trying to recover from the ordeal.

For all the money that exchanged hands with all these people who extorted it I hope one day all involved rots in Hades.

You f'ing retards at TMZ!!!. (not u Harvey) duh!! of course he is listed as BLACK. Cause he was Black and regardless of his skin changing color. He always said he was black!!

There are some black people who LOVE being black. But do not care to look black or so black. Its a much longer discussion, and non blacks could never understand it!!!!!!!
