MJ's Funeral

The Stars Arrive

9/3/2009 10:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE 8:10 PM PT: The Jackson family has arrived -- only an hour and ten minutes late.

Rest in peace, Michael Jackson.

UPDATE 8:00 PM PT:
The Jackson family has still not arrived ... the service was scheduled to begin an hour ago. Some of the guests arrived around 6:30.

UPDATE
: Lisa Marie Presley -- Michael's ex-wife -- just arrived. Corey Feldman is there too.

mj-funeral-1
The star-studded crowd is arriving at Michael Jackson's funeral -- Liz Taylor, Barry Bonds, Macaulay Culkin, Mila Kunis, Chris Tucker, Al Sharpton and more...

Meanwhile, the family has still not left their Encino compound.

Does the fashionably late rule apply to a funeral?!

Geez, have you folks ever heard of CPT? That's "colored people's time". Ain't a black funeral in the history of the world started on time. The service will start when the family gets there! Get out of folks' business

How are you seeing the celebrities? I cannot see any individuals, only a green space.

Thanks

Late? Who cares? It isn't as if the guest of honor is going to be upset about it.

I think the entire B.S. at this high-falutin' cemetery is absurd! I think the Bible says "ashes to ashes, dust to dust." Michael is going to be put in a drawer above ground!

It is going to be cold there, dreary, scary. How many of YOU would like to walk through those halls all by yourself? If not, would you want to be buried there? It is sooo unnatural.

All a big media event. It is horrible that Michael's poor decomposing body (yes, even if preserved) is still in a frig.

Yuck

I think that Lisa Marie was the love of his life and sadden that they parted. I hope that let Micheal rest in peace. Loveyoumore.

@61. Really? "Hillbillies"?! They've been in California for 40 years. It's THEIR service for THEIR relative. Does their tardiness offend YOU? Is it disrupting the busy lives of all of us who are sitting on the couch with a laptop and snark? Let them folks have their funeral and stop hatin'!

Yep, guests be there 7:00 sharp! The family will show up when they feel like it.

I heard Liz Taylor can't stand Joe Jackson.

I'm watching the live stream on CNN, but they're just showing the Jacksons driving to the funeral. Is there a link to a more interesting live stream? Where are you guys seeing these celebrities?
