MJ Cemetery Charging 3 Bucks to Leave Gifts

9/15/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's gonna cost Michael Jackson fans if they want to continue leaving gifts inside the King of Pop's mausoleum -- because TMZ has learned the cemetery is now charging a special $3 MJ delivery fee.

Michael Jackson mausoleum gift fee.

According to sources at the infamous burial space, Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA has decided to take down the stage where fans were previously allowed to place gifts -- and are now enacting a new gifting policy ... so long as fans pay the price and abide by the rules.

Effective immediately, cemetery staff will take gifts for MJ inside the mausoleum -- where fans are still forbidden from setting foot -- for a $3 fee ... oh yeah, as long as those gifts are flowers.

Anything else -- teddy bears, posters, picture frames, candles -- will get dumped ... and if they run out of space inside, we're told excess gifts will have to brave the elements outside.

UPDATE: The cemetery tells us "Anyone who purchases flowers, for any decedent, can request that the arrangement purchased at Forest Lawn is to be placed at an interment site."

I could have sworn it was #121 when I posted. I'm sure they adjust the numbers sometimes to confuse us. Maybe they take the adverts out?

Hi Brigha! Working hard & still here at TMZ. Can't keep away - for a variety of reasons!!

I'm still looking forward to you posting your thoughts on MJ - the ones you said could cause a bit of an uproar!!

136. Hi Andie. Mmmm - one day maybe! In all honesty, I'm a massive admirer of MJ and always have been. It's just that I find the psychology of the man (faults and all) much more fascinating than his public image.
The more obsessive fans don't always see it my way and I don't want a virtual punch in the face!

Hello Brigha! I saw one of your posts the other day describing where you live and it sounds so beautiful - I truly wish that I was able to see it with my own two eyes!

Hi Brigha I don't want you getting the punch in the face & I understand why you don't feel really comfortable with putting you thoughts out there! There's a lot I would LOVE to say, but I haven't, probably for the same reason!
The psychology aspect of MJ is what has always fascinated me, from long ago, & to be honest I enjoy reading about the bad & the good!

Another way to make money using Michael's name.

I would go to church and pray for poor Michael's soul.
