James Brown Did Not Continue His World Tour

3/12/2010 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There are reports that James Brown's body is missing from his crypt -- as in, stolen -- but TMZ has learned the Godfather of Soul never left the building.

James Brown
The morbid dispute arose when one of Brown's illegitimate daughters, LaRhonda Pettit, told a UK newspaper that the singer's body was mysteriously moved from the temporary crypt in South Carolina in an attempt to keep her from having another autopsy performed on the body.

Brown died in 2006 -- and Pettit had suggested foul play.

But a lawyer who represents 5 of Brown's children tells TMZ James is right where he should be -- in his crypt -- still dressed to the nines in one of his famously awesome "farewell" outfits.

This is seriously disgusting, who thought of this Harvey? I see you have no respect for anyone dead or live. Please show some amount of decency and take this down.

Two different outfits is because they have changed his clothes, there is just no other meaning- he can`t change them by himself....
I wonder how much they pay for those people who can do it.

I bet the loser slob that had to change his clothes makes minimum wage heh heh.He could have picked him up and danced around with him and spun him around on his head like a top and filmed it.That would be great for youtube.....I would have at least broke off a finger or toe and sold it on ebay.

Like it was TMZ's fault Brown's funeral was open casket! Someone else made the decision to have an open casket and pictures taken. Read the article twice if you didn't understand why his pictures were posted there.

James Brown was such a great celebrity and star that his viewing is not disturbing. He was a legend and he still is. Say what you say...

Considering how long he's been dead...he looks good. Most living people don't look that well put together.
