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..

What's so sad is that family wouldn't have anything with out him and they are so disrespecting him not putting him to rest. I"m not a fan of mj's but this i find horrible and disrespectful.

Why is there a delay in the first place? 2 months is not enough time to wait to bury someone you supposedly loved? It's sickening....all of them. Bury this man and give him SOME dignity. Who left Joe Jackson in charge, anyway?

OR, why not just wait until his NEXT birthday? Or what would have been his 60th? WHAT is WRONG with these people? Does anyone in that family have balls? Why is Joe holding the strings?

Why doesn't the family keep it quiet... if they don't want a scene just keep your mouth shut and do it privately.... Or, is Katherine and Joe trying to figure out how to cash-in on this event. I was pro-Katherine but she is a money grubber too. Thank goodness the court appointed a lawyer to protect the interest of the kids.

Has anyone told Michael so he knows which day to turn on a television and watch his own faked funeral?
