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.

If we all show up from around the world, with love and candles, they won't make us all leave. There are too many. With that much love God will let it happen. Have faith and show up. Just behave respectfully because there are other graves and mourners there. Let's show the world we are united in love for our angel. If they try to make us all leave it will take a large police force...that will garner too much attention for them and their sad policy. I don't believe they will take it that far.
Major love to you all...Theresa

I have read some of the comments on here and I have to say there are allot of sick people in this world, do you even think of what if his children found this site and read these comments, some of you need serious phychiatric help I mean seriously disturbing. As far as the fans go, you pay your respect then you leave, I don't feel they should ban fans, there should be a limit at a time and a time line but banning them is not right and Michael would not want that. I live in Canada and could not afford to fly down for that purpose but if I ever was in Cali I would go there pay my respects then leave. But overly obsessed fans that stay there and lounge will ruin it for other fans.

Is the lovely Patrick still head of security at forest lawn? If he is then im off there, i dont mind being manhandled by him.

By the way take a look at tmz archives, they should bring out a cd of all their famous videos and one liners...such moving classics like....
"Jacko's Crapo Up for Auction"..thats from feb 17 09 and what about "Coherent Jacko Declares British Invasion", from mar 05 09...and then if youre feeling extra caring theres the headline "Judge: Jacko's Crapo Still for Sale!....with the line "MJ's dad, a pimpin' Joe Jackson" from april 03 09.

and for those who are into robots theres the "Jacko -- The Man in the Rear-View Mirror
Britney's Circus tour isn't due in town 'til next week -- but everyone on Bedford was treated to an insane sideshow yesterday when reassembled pop star Michael Jackson rolled through Beverly Hills" ... -unmasked/

It's not Forrest Lawn but the Jackson family, Randy Jackson the other day said the family was not happy that twice now photos of the inside got out, especially the one's with the sunflowers.
He said he was meeting with the Forrest Lawn officials to find out how it happened and that it doesn't happen again.
So if you all are upset be upset with the family not the burial site admins.
Also Lisa Marie Presley did not help the situation with her call to send flowers and inundate the place.

The fans should wire RandyJhole and LMP a couple of sunflowers thanking them for their invaluable influence.

some of these liars and crazies don't care if their own children view this site. so no they do not care about MJ's children.

one thing the press could never demean....his music and that was part of his soul, so in a way it made all those thoughtless words meaningless.

Thank you Forrest Lawn for having the since that others lack.

Forrest Lawn has no intention of rec ending anything about letting fans come and go as they please. There are other families to consider in this cemetery.
I know this, because I receive and email, from them letting me know my families loved ones memory is as important to them as anyone else. Michael Jackson's fans should not be the exception to their policies.

Again, Thank you Forrest Lawn for respecting my families loved one along with others.

Glenda, I agree with you. Due respect to forest lawn, but the fans just want to be there for him, he should never be lonely and without flowers, like the ones Lisa Marie mentioned. Maybe forest lawn isnt the right place, Neverland could be, it is so beautiful there, remember Larry king sitting outside with Jermaine in the beautiful sunshine, rancho relaxo lol. so peaceful and tranquil.

I for one would LOVE to see LAPD/SWAT/& CANG Riot Control in action!!
Oh yeah!
By all means, MJrabid fanatics...bring it on.
The Jackson family should have procured a suitable place to lay the one-gloved wonder to rest that would have been accessible to his radical dysfunctional fans.
But then, at the time they were only concerned with which site would afford them the most prestigious/ostentatious setting for their dress rehearsed "funeral".
Michelle Jackson isn't even there!
And forget a future move of WonderBoy to Neverland for the purpose of fan access. The Jacksons all ready tried that as #1 back in June 09.
Los Olivos/Santa Barbara County have already put up the roadblocks to that unwelcomed sideshow.
If anywhere...should they feel compelled...they should move the "body" to LV where they should have in the first place. If the Jackson family wants to continue their long history of maintaining a circus atmosphere...there is no better(or profitable) place... & keep their Jackson dung out of institutions/settings with integrity.
MJfans got "the boot" from ForestLawn. lol I figured this might be a possiblity after one of the other Jackson WonderBoys took it upon himself to attempt to bend ForestLawns 100year old rules expressly for the Jacksons pocketbook.
This news is SOOOO pleasing to my eyes. Not because the fans will be the big losers. It is the MJFT/Michael Jackson/Jackson family who will suffer $$$$.
I guess their ForestLawn (the public outcry against DVDs/capitalizing on the "funeral") brainstorm has kinda backfired on them.
Stop worrying/whining/cryn/slobber'n you rabids, they (MJFT/Michael Jackson) will find the right, the just perfect annointed/sacred ground to move him to. Probably something like a huge Pyramid/thriller/circus topped site in LV. Booked acts, Cirque du Soleil, etc. will NEVER pull in the same profits as a "dead" corpse in a showcased setting will.
If EP wasn't buried at Graceland, do you really think the EP estate would enjoy the same profits that they do today?

can you see the truth or not? its up to open your eyes, hearts and minds...

you can do this and you will see the truth...

20 plus years of media much was true? some..the rest was all have the power to accept it or not..

what is your decision? mine is the Truth...for the last 6 more belief in lies...that goes for most of the media stories...more than half I think are lies or half-truths..
