Michael Jackson's Grand Farewell

7/7/2009 1:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's Grand FarewellMichael Jackson will create even more pandemonium in death than he did in life -- his body will take center stage at Tuesday's public memorial at the Staples Center in downtown L.A.

The family will hold a private memorial early in the morning at Forest Lawn -- where the body is now. The coffin will then be transported to Staples for what promises to be one of the biggest spectacles in L.A. history.

We will be live streaming everything as it happens beginning early in the AM.

That isn't the funeral right now. Its probably just a visitation type of service. They just took the body from one area of the cemetery to another and put it into another building.

Michael's body was just moved from the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn to a different building on the grounds.

WRONG    

TMZ has it wrong again. Michael is being buried at 8 am 2 hours before the actual memorial starts. If your going to post news, make sure you have credited resources. RIP Michael.

I still think it's a ruse to get the copters to the Staples Center so then everyone else can turn to the second star on the right - then to Neverland.

@36: That is what has been reported for the last few days, but this has caught us by surprise as well. I'm not so sure that's a reliable source anymore.
