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?

Just a thought... Maybe they had him cremated and he was put in the grave site that all the toys were put in. I'm not sure what the tombstone all said, but it was just a thought.

I still hope Jermaine's wish for Michael to be buried at Neverland, is honored. I visited Neverland's gates and the Los Olivos area just yesterday and it is absolutuely beautiful! So serene & peaceful. People from around the world were steadily driving up to pay their respect 2 mos. after he passed, and without him even buried there. The millions of his fans the world over NEED a place to pay their respects to the world's greatest entertainer. The fans were banned from being anywhere near the memorial service, and thousands of them had flown from around the world for nothing. And now the news of the great mausoleum at Forest Lawn being closed to the public is another huge slap in the face to his loyal supporters. Michael's family need to realize that he loved his fans and worked his whole life for the reward of their love and appreciation. His fans stood loyally by his side rallying in support during his darkest days. Michael's vision and heart was in the creation of Neverland where he spent nearly 2 decades of his life. Yes, the F.B.I raid tarnished his emotions about his home, but now that time has passed, I think it would bring him great joy to know that this place was again turned to a place of respect and love, and a place to celebrate him.
It was done wit Elvis and princess Diana, and should be done for Michael & those who love him.

i agree with you no6, its all about milking this cash cow and untill it runs dry again...this family of dysfunctional opportunists havent seen this type of dough coming in since the heady days of the JACKSON FIVE and little micheal jackson was the lead singer of a well disciplined tight knit money maker for wiley operator joe jackson.now they have managed to broker a deal for a REALITY SHOW which they had been shopping to the networks before their brothers death and where not getting any takers as he REFUSED to come on board with them.Now its been given the GREEN LIGHT , the brothers will need all their acting skills to milk it al the way to the bank of JOE JACKSON . what a bunch of retards....

am no crazy nutjob jackson fan like some of the truely demented on the blogs , (i swear some of this people are ready to kill themselves they are so off balance its scary..) what am i talking about? they already have!! all twelve of them..!!! god help us...However, when it comes to balancing acts, at least the family got this one right.. am glad they are not burying jackson in the former Neverlands..it was not his wish and at least it is being respected, god knows, that family of greedy opportunists havent respected any of his other wishes, challenging the will even before he was in the ground..am begining to see where micheal jacksons problems stem from now, what a family!! who is actually normal amongst them??. maybe rebbie but it was not in his will that those kids should be raised by anyone but his mother or diana ross and that has not been kept as its rebbie who is actually raising them and their nanny,Grace, who they loved so much is out of the picture.I dont understand why MARK LESTER is getting into this act right now, am not disputing his claims and just curious to know why he wants to muscle in on this territory.. they shut him out like they shut out a lot of micheal jacksons close friends and associates .. its not about him anymore, its about them now.

I personally dont see the point in going over Jacksons behaviour now, he is dead. His behaviour is in the past, not the present and although am the last person who would excuse a grown man behaving like a child the way he did but having the business savvy of an adult at the same time, its like kicking the dead, they cant reply or defend themselves .. its over. However, that family is another matter, what a bunch of low lifes looking for a pay day!!there is only three of them that are financially independant the rest are handout merchants and micheal fed them untill he died not to mention their brood of 27 grandchildren !!. That family are enough to make anyone go a bit crazy , am sure their demands while he was alive were enough to drive him into an early grave, the last one was that REALITY SHOW the brothers where shopping to the networks which jackson refused to have anything to do with . disgraceful.besides, jacksons fans should stop complaining as the family dont care about jacksons fans they only care about what pays them. its not about micheal jackson anymore, its about them.
