MJ Fans Dispute Lisa Marie's Cemetery Claims

5/13/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A group of Michael Jackson fans dedicated to honoring MJ's tomb claim Lisa Marie Presley was dead wrong when she insisted that the pop star wasn't getting enough love at his grave site -- and they have the pics to prove it.

TMZ spoke with a rep from the "Original Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California" who told us they visit the site at least once a month -- and always flood the place with gifts and flowers. The group claims they've documented all of their trips with pictures like the one shown above, which was taken April 3rd.

As we previously reported, LMP had posted a message on her MySpace page yesterday, claiming there was too much "empty space" around the site and called for fans to step it up and send flowers.

But the rep from OMJFSC tells us, "You know what, we all know that we visit Michael once a month ... so like everything else we just have to find comfort in the fact that we know the truth.

To OMJFSC



That does not look like a lot of flowers to me..how about you show some love to her and make her understand that you send flowers every day instead of bashing her in public and disrespecting Mj by showing hatred...
LOVE people not BASH HER..SHE SAYS HE DESERVES MORE WHAT IS SO WRONG ABOUT THAT...

I agree that the real flowers left probably do not last long. The folks at Holly Terrace may even spread them around to other graves, who knows? LMP seemed to be talking about inside at the acutal tomb, not outside. The fans are not allowed inside. The Jackson family established a very short list of people allowed inside - family members and just a few close friends. Obviously Lisa and her daughter are on this list.



I don't see what's so harmful about putting flowers on someone's grave. It's just an expression of love and what they meant to you when they were living in this world. Lisa said she brought a vase of silk sunflowers herself, but that it might be nice to have more.



Whoever said that Michael's spirit has moved on is right of course. These actions (of visiting, putting flowers, etc.) are a coping mechanism for the fans, family, Lisa, etc. It's a comfort to THEM and THEIR grief, and it's a way to honor Michael's memory, but he's in a better place, where I'm sure the sunflowers are endless. :)

I am so embarrassed about this post that reflects on all fans. TMZ, pleeease change your title, OMJFSC does NOT represent ALL fans. I am a devoted MJ fan and I apologize to LMP for this utter disrespect! Why you all wanna make a mountain out of a molehill? She meant well, she said it with L.O.V.E. 1- We don't know what Forest Lawn does with the stuff we send 2- Look at ignorant comments like "millions of dollars coming out of her butt"! You call yourself a MJ "fan". She is the former wife and a good friend of Michael Jackson, u r out of line, be respectful! The point is MJ getting flowers & gifts from HIS FANS. Fan groups, watch how u act, u reflect badly on all of us!

Jeez people she only said that we should surround him with what he likes..at least she's allowed inside...she said what she saw and she saw that there's a lot of empty space...



Just because you carry flowers to his door and say i love you DOESN'T mean anything if you bash and oppose one of the people he loved

HELLO! She is referring to the area inside, right next to the tomb or whatever. Employees HAVE brought in gifts given to them by fans but obviously they can't bring them ALL in - they probably don't want to clutter up the place for when family visits. If they brought everything in, the place would be a mess. Fans can't stroll in and leave flowers, etc. Jeez.

People be aware that Forrest Lawn does not accept silk or any other type of flowers that are not FRESH and REAL flowers, you can call in the flower shop and inquire this for yourself, so you don't go out of your way for this.



Now I wonder why this group has to go and tell this story to TMZ, this clarification is not needed, what is wrong with you starting this kind of fighting, have you no respect for Lisa Marie, this sounds awful to start these kind of attacks back to her, she doesn't know, it's obvious they have changed the ways they are doing things in Holly Terrace. Why not use the energy to write to her and let her know directly and then maybe have her call or go there and inquire about our gifts and why they are not left there for a longer period of time. My experience is now that everytime that crypt is practically bare, never like the end of last year or the beggining of this year, they seem to be removing stuff very quickly and that doesn't sound fair, especially for people that travel far to get a gift there and those that send in or mail them from overseas. April 24th crypt was bare and then now Lisa goes on May 11th and it's almost bare again, hmm. Why not complain to the Jackson family about this, this is not Lisa Marie's fault, gotta thank her for informing us.

However, this was part of the reason MJ & LMP split up. She believed he dodged a bullet in '93 & was concerned at the position he was continuing to place himself in with his continued close associations with young boys. She believed that he should have learned his lesson the first time in r/e to how that would be viewed by the world.




SHE WAS RIGHT.

It's FALSE. They split up because she didn't want children. For any other reason.

Very true, MichaelJACKSON. Goes against everything that Michael stood for. He obviously felt great affection for her long after they split up. There must have been a reason for that. Like it or not, they cared about one another. The hateful comments are something that Michael would be ashamed to see. People say the same hateful things about La Toya, which would also make Michael unhappy I'm sure. Michael LOVED these people, despite their weaknesses, flaws etc. Michael was no perfect person himself.

When she wanted come back with Michael after divorce, he REFUSED HER. So he didn't love her anymore because her disappointed him (according to Michael's words). Even if they remained friends for some time.

I guess not the same. Uncanny coincidence. Nevertheless the "googly moogly" made me giggle and smile.
