6/2/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson had some unexpected company drop by this weekend -- a surprise visit from his close friend Stevie Wonder.

TMZ has confirmed that the singer and three of his children stopped by Michael's tomb at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA this weekend to pay their respects.

According to Stevie's rep, Wonder and his kids had gone to the cemetery to visit Stevie's dearly departed mother -- but Stevie's children insisted they visit MJ too.

Wonder and MJ were famously close -- and at MJ's memorial last year, Stevie told the crowd he often let Michael know how much he loved him ... and was "at peace with that."

Wow, is that what he said? I interpreted it as, "he had told Michael he loved him often so he was at peace with himself for having done so." So many of us don't get to tell our loved ones they are loved before they pass.



That was my interpretation of it anyway.

What's the point of bringing Stevie to see a dead pedo's grave?

Stevie Wonder LOVED Michael Jackson. Wonder's performance in memoriam of Michael was marred by the fact that Wonder broke down and cried in front of an audience and could barely finish the song, due to his grief over Michael Jackson's sudden death.



As usual, the media spins the story...stating that Wonder's children were the ones who wanted to visit Michael Jackson's tomb. How would you know that TMZ? Do you have a Wonder family spy chasing behind them with a sound recorder? Were you in Holly Terrace at the time the Wonder children allegedly asked their father to visit MJ's tomb?



So sick of the negative slant regarding the media's relationship with Michael Jackson. For God's sake, have some empathy and compassion for this man, and for once, could TMZ and other media outlets publish a story without some subliminal negative connotation attached to it?

Q: What’s the difference between Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson?
A: Neil Armstrong walked on the moon… and Michael Jackson molested children.

That brought tears to my eyes :') Michael loved/would have loved that!



And @ Cartman
There are so many things wrong with your question.
-Stevie and Michael were friends. Would you visit one of your best friend's grave? If not, I feel sorry for you...
-Prove me that Mihael was a'pedo'. He was blackmailed and taken advantaged of. Not the other way around. FBI released the docs.. And he was proven innocent.. I guess you just have more evidence than the people who have worked with the case!
-I see that you are pointing out that there is no point in bringing a blind man to the grave. Maybe you are just so insensitive person that it is impossible for you to understand.



But I know for a fact that there is no point in trying to explain...
So there.

" . . .he often let Michael know how much he loved him ... and was "at peace with that."



Does that sound ominous to anyone else?

Absolutely agree Chico. MJ was a man who gave so much to the world, yet has never been awarded the the respect he deserved. Media bashing has become almost habitual. When is the it ever going to stop?
