MJ Mausoleum -- Fans No Longer Welcome

5/30/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The cemetery where Michael Jackson is entombed is launching a new crackdown on fans -- actively removing people hanging out in front of MJ's mausoleum.

According to sources at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, security has been informed that MJ fans are no longer permitted to gather on the patio of MJ's mausoleum. Those who loiter will be asked to leave.

It's unclear why Forest Lawn is making the move -- especially because fans have been visiting the burial site regularly since MJ moved in last year.

And now -- with the one-year anniversary of Michael's death fast approaching -- the Justice4MJ fan group is concerned about their plans to gather at the mausoleum on June 25.

A rep for the group tells us they hope Forest Lawn will "take into consideration" the hundreds of fans traveling from all over the world to pay their respects.

This ban won't last. They are going to find some way to capitalize on this and resend.

Just when I thought the Michael Jackson tomb patrol story was the craziest story I'd read today...I saw this crazy scandal involving Jay Leno. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5zP7_C2Fjk

why should they gather there if MJ is not there?
don't look for him amongst the dead ones, he is alive and I hope he will be back.



I love you Michael with all my heart and soul, I trust you and only you and I hope you will be back some day.

I see, so Conrad can go there as many times as he likes, tripping up on the steps whilst looking pensive for his photog companion, but fans are not welcome?

Forest Lawn had better get ready - better to let the hundreds (if not thousands) of fans pass through, than have them congregating in front of the gates, occupying the parking lot and blocking traffic.

I have an idea for all the Michael Jackson fans, why don't you all go to the cemetary where someone you actually knew and loved is buried and put flowers on their grave.



Personally I'd rather go to my mother's grave than some dead celebrities grave. Show some respect for my loved one's. JMO

Then by all means do that and get off this forum.

People should be allowed to visit a gravesite and pay their respects. Maybe the volume of people is just too great for the security people to deal with. Whatever the reason, I'm sure the "ban" will be lifted soon. Keep Conny the killer quack away though...forever !!
