Birthday Burial for Michael Jackson, Dad Says

8/17/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe JacksonHow better to celebrate Michael Jackson's would-be 51st birthday than by burying him?

That's the plan, at least according to his dad, Joe Jackson. The family statesman told the NY Daily News that Jackson will finally be laid to rest on August 29 at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Joe told the paper the burial plans were just finalized over the past few days.

We've been told Jackson's body is being kept above ground at Forest Lawn and is being kept in a freezer.

How much is Joe going to make on this. Is it going to a pay per view event? What is the D list celebrity line up? Who is going to speak?
Probably some celebrities who he hasn't seen in 20+ years...just like the fiasco they did in LA.

eww ick!

That Joe Jackson is a shame, how much money is he making now that Michael is dead, i bet he is happy now, isnt it the normal thing that the father dies before the son?? i've never seen this man sad since his son died, always all happy, with his diamond rings, a big aweful smile on his face three days after his son died, just so sick. He waited so much time, Michael should be buried already and at Neverland, not at that cemmetery, Michael wanted Neverland not other place, but who cares about Michael now right? RIP MJ

It makes it even sadder, but he needs to buried. Also since it's said from Joe, it's not that reliable. x.x

This man is disgusting anything for money. The family just needs to let MJ rest in peace. Between Jermaine and Joe these 2 guys all they see are dollar signs.

This poor guy can't even die normal.
His family is a three ring circus and have just been making a mockery of his life and death.
Jermaine seems like a chip off the crazy old man's block. This entire family needs an intervention!
Bury the poor bastard where HE would want to be buried. Not where you think he will generate the most profit. Oh and GET A JOB! Stop living on your dead brother or child. Its just all so sick and twisted.
