MJ Tomb -- Defaced with Hidden Messages

7/13/2010 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Michael Jackson's tomb has been defaced by a stealth band of vandals -- who have marked the walls of MJ's mausoleum with hidden messages ... and it's all in permanent ink.

Security at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA is on the lookout for "fans" who have been writing messages in hard-to-spot places outside the main window of the building in which MJ is entombed.

The writing is mostly hidden underneath ledges -- or in spots covered by bushes -- and contains messages like, "Miss you" and "Keep the dream alive."

Reps at Forest Lawn are pretty ticked off -- telling TMZ, "Activity such as this, is a prime example why we are evaluating the level of access to the various entrances of the Great Mausoleum."

Forest Lawn also tells us that anyone caught vandalizing the cemetery will be banned for life.

UPDATE 07/16/10 -- according to sources at Forest Lawn, the graffiti has successfully been removed.

Those people show no class. What they couldn't afford sunflowers? Why don't you go write on your own house.

What's next? Digging a tunnel to get to the body? Cutting a hole in the roof? Oh... Peace, love and understanding... Ha

I didn't think his body was there! Besides, while this isn't a good thing to do, they read more like heart-broken tributes. They are not offensive, just his fans still mourning his death.

Why oh Why?    

Just because you´re in mourning doesn´t give you the right to destroy other people´s properties! Leaving letters, drawings and other stuff is a way better way of doing it.

Writing in permanent ink is just a selfish way of showing "I was here!" If they would have wanted to write a message for Michael, he would have "seen" it, whether written on a note by his tomb or anywhere else.

Geez! Whoever wrote what we saw in photo 6, can't even spell MJ's name right! It's not Micheal.

If MJ fans have done this, it is wrong of course. No one should vandalize other people´s property. That said, I can´t see that those inscriptions prove thay are on the wall close to Michael.

Marilyn Monroe's grave is a big marble box in a local L.A. cemetery, and there are 100's of lipstick kisses all over it. They said the marble used to be white but has discolored over the years from the oils and dirt from people's hands. Just sayin'

Banned for life - but they'll willingly take you money if you decide to get buried there? Considering that we're talking about Jackson fans here they should extend that ban to include death.
