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.

Moron, he was still worth over $200 million after all his debt was paid. He lived in a house that rented for $100,000 a month and people are fighting over his will. Why? They are fighting because there is over $200 million to fight over.

ugh    

There ARE other events happening other than Michael Jackson's memorial. Enough with every headline (especially here on TMZ) pertaining something to Michael. He's been gone over a week already -- and yet to be buried. That's pretty ick, truly. I did love his music, but let's face it, the last part of his life he was the butt of endless jokes and we all wondered just what he had done to children. Let his music live, but enough with this glorifiying him like he was some kind of saint.

You know, some people posting comments on this site are being ridiculous and immature!! For God's sake, this is a funeral...regardless of whose it is, it is never the less a funeral. It doesn't matter what happened when MJ was alive and what wrong choices he made in his life. Whatever he did, he did it to himself and his family! None of us have the right to judge him for any of it! How many of you are so freaking innocent and how many of you have no faults to answer for??? First check yourselves before posting stupid comments on this site and making a world wide fool of yourself! Let the man rest in peace and for all of you haters out there...no matter what you say or do....you can NEVER change the fact that Michael Jackson was, is, and will always be THE KING OF POP!!! Nothing or no one can ever change that! He's a legend, we all grew up listening to his music and our future generations will too. He will NEVER be forgotten! We love you MJ. May you Rest in PEACE! Remember, God forgives everyone for their mistakes...I know this from a very personal experience! God bless your souls!
