Michael Jackson Burial Postponed, Daddy Says

8/20/2009 3:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's burial is being postponed two days, according to his dad.

 Joe Jackson & Michael Jackson

Joe Jackson tells TMZ the burial has been pushed to August 31, because there are things the family needs to get in order before Michael is laid to rest.

Jackson was scheduled to be buried on August 29, what would have been his 51st birthday.

Poor Michael, still being abused by his father even AFTER death. It's sad the way this man has used his kid to make money and keep himself in the's gone on for years.

Schedule the funeral, bury the guy, let his family have some closure. And please...keep Joe away from Michael's kids.

They deserve a chance.

It's only fitting that MJ be buried on the 31st, since 31 is the kind of number that the occult elites who murdered him are obsessed with, and it will always point to their guilt in his death.

I believe he's no longer here. So sad how his family is prolonging this. Bury him already, please! You have proof he's still alive Della? Do tell.

Cut the body into 10 or more pieces and give each family member their share. They can each do what they want.

No more bickering.

64. I say bury him on Halloween. Considering that fright mask of a face he had, nothing could be more appropriate.

Los Angeles, CA-- Halloween is only three months away and there is an item everyone will want to have. The hideous mask is very scary. It is the Michael Jackson Halloween costume, and it comes in three varieties.

The first Halloween costume is called Pepsi Michael, and it shows Michael just after his Pepsi commercial accident in 1984. A big chunk of hair is missing on the mask and Michael has an agonizing, scary look on his face. The one-glove costume is more expensive on this model. Pictures of little boys falling out of the pockets also cost extra.

The second model is Pedo Michael, circa 1993. Michael had changed races and sexes by that time, and the plastic surgery had already taken a devastating toll. The rubber nose on the mask is detachable.

The third Halloween costume is expected to be the best seller. It is called Dead Michael, and it will shock everyone who sees it. Dead Michael is a skeleton, wearing a cheap plastic wig. Needles stick out of Dead Michael's sunken chest. A nice addition on this model is a bag of air, hidden in the right arm. When squeezed, the bag of air sounds just like Michael sucking in his final breathe. It should be great at Halloween parties!

Strange. What is wrong with this family? OK, maybe someone got appendicitis and needs an operation before the burial - well, I actually don't believe that. Like someone said, it would be wonderful if he could come back, but sadly, he won't. He has left that body long ago. I hope this date is the final one.

WTF Joe?!? Why can't he just let his son rest in peace already?

49. The Jackson's have their reasons, I'm sure they're doing the right thing. They're very smart and savvy people, and they love MJ very much. MJ has been resting in peace with God since he left this world. The children have said goodbye to MJ already at the hospital and the memorial. There is no such thing as closure when you lose your father anyway.

Personally, I'm glad MJ is not being buried on his birthday, because I want to think of MJ's birthday as a joyous day, the day he was born, not the day he was buried. It's only fitting that MJ be buried on the 31st, since 31 is the kind of number that the occult elites who murdered him are obsessed with, and it will always point to their guilt in his death.

yelena, france

say and think what you want,
But MJ was a wacko any way you look at him..

So I am guessing ALOt of what YOU see has been staged to
make Him look Normal.. It is Easy to see that MJ had a lot of
Problems... Drugs and the way he was attracted to young boys.
I am not saying anything the World does not already Know.

Good news! Let our voices be heard by the Jackson family letting them know how disgusting they are still feeding off of Michael for money. How dare they even consider burying Michael on his 51st birthday with immediate family and friends only permitted to attend. That is so disrespectful to Michael! As Jehovah Witnesses they did not celebrate birthdays, yet they thought it was okay to celebrate Michael’s 51st birthday by burying him? To bury Michael where not one of his fans can visit is wrong. Michael deserves better. Michael had to live lonely and isolated and alone, so wrong to isolate him in death. Love you Micheal! God Bless you and your children.
