Michael Jackson Burial Delayed Until September 3

8/21/2009 1:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson will be buried on September 3 -- instead of August 29 as originally planned.

According to a statement released by the family, the burial will be at Holly Terrace in The Great Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. -- and will be limited to family and close friends.

Joe Jackson, Michael's dad, told us the burial would be delayed, but the day they wanted it changed to -- August 31 -- became problematic because of schools re-opening on that day.

So Joe was right -- who'd have thunk it?

Like I said before Complete hoax. No Normal human being would keep this going on this long . He faked his death and now they are trying to reap the rewards from it. The siblings will need no job now their fortunes are sealed with the supposed death of their brother. From day one I said He faked his death ! Everything was a mystery from the beginning! They hid everything and prolonged this whole ordeal and played this out to the media The biggest hoax of all time. They are burying an empty coffin. If they were not hiding anything than they would of had a public viewing just like james brown!1 So with this and no one but family will be permitted to go to the crypt at any given time. No fans are allowed it is off limits. So All they want is the fans money.So boycott them and dont buy anything. The movie coming out is a sham. I would not be surprised if it does not exist. He could be making it right now. No one really knows the truth..

I've only just learnt about this in the UK..think it stinks...what ARE this family playing at???? I don't go with this Jehovah's Witness stuff...IF THEY ARE J.W.'s they KNEW that when they arranged the burial on MJ's birthday in the FIRST PLACE so WHY pick his birthday? They are f------ him about as much in death as in life ...it's disgusting...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL. R.I.P love you so much..... GET THAT DOCTOR and OTHERS BEFORE HIM IN GAOL.

Unfortunately Michael is not dead and sadly there is no evidence. They claimed MJ is dead and we have to believe the scrap.But it is high time for MJ that he should enjoy his life without any pressures from this kind of medias which sucks blood in and around Hollywood.Come MJ to the land of Maharaja and we serve you like a King
