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?

They'll put you in
the cold, cold ground
with all your relatives
standing around.

The worms will crawl in
And the worms will crawl out
The ants will play pinochle
on your snout!

Oh, you don't have a snout!

People,
Michael is resting in peace.
His body is in a safe place, and the cemetery where he will be buried is a secure place. Stop rushing his family and thinking the worst about them. The Jacksons have done a lot of things right. Like all families they've made mistakes, but Michael loved them very much, and they -- even Joe -- loved him. Remember they are still grieving. So give them a break.

Why didn't they bury him at the Forest Lawn in Hollywood Hills? He's already there. My family is at Glendale Forest Lawn which is really nice and peacful until that lunatic gets there with his crazy family. Doesn't Forest Lawn have any say over who gets buried there?

liz vitale he wasnt a perv, just a really shy misunderstood musical genius.people llike to drag down the people that they have built up like your doing now mike gave 300 million to charity and although he was not perfect and self medicated himself so what that doesnt take away from all he accomplished.while people dragged his name through the mud he took the high road .even in death he moves people.say what you want but your on this site too so you are bviously drawn in by him and we all know if your lonely and want attention the way to get it is by saying something mean .mike and both live you more

#140 Is something wrong with you? No normal 35 year old man hangs with little boys. Don't tell me he was Peter Pan either. He was a PERV, and a junkie.

I am fine thank you! Maybe you should be directing that question to yourself? If you think someone (yes even a 35 year old male) can not hang out with young boys without having a sick or torrid motive, then yes maybe there is something wrong with you. Not everyone has an ulterior motive to their actions or thinks like you do. I am 37 and my husband is 38 and yes we both hang out with a lot of children, and to be quite frankly, I enjoy the company of children more so than adults. Does this make us sick or perverted?????? The law says innocent until proven guilty. We'll the innocent part has already accomplished by 12 informed jurors. Now...... where's all your guilty evidence????? oops yeah that's right, there is none.

Be more relevant to the conversation. If Michael was such a "perv" as you say, then why do you seem to be following all his news stories????????
