Michael Jackson Is Laid To Rest

Michael Jackson is laid to rest in a private ceremony of 200 guests at the Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Thursday (September 3), ten weeks after his sudden death.

Michael‘s family, including his mother Katherine and father Joe, his siblings, and his three children Prince Michael, Paris, and Prince Michael II, also known as Blanket, were driven to the memorial park in a fleet of Rolls Royce limousines, arriving over an hour late for the planned 7pm start.

The king of pop’s close friends including Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Mila Kunis, actor Chris Tucker, and Elizabeth Taylor attended the outdoor ceremony. Jackson‘s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley also turned out to honor her late former husband.

    You’ll always be the King and you’ll never leave our hearts. Rest in peace, angel, and God bless you, for all you’ve achieved, for the inconceivable talent, for the great music, for your outstanding & cosmic dance, for your kind soul and your innocence! You’ll always be Peter Pan in our hearts! Love you!!!

    I felt closure watching your burial service last night because the people that TRULY knew you spoke of what your TRUE fans already knew. You were a gentle, kind, sweet, loving, giving and wonderful human being. You will be missed but your music will live on because you have left us with a plenty of that. I have always loved you Michael Jackson and will never forget you. Now, no matter what the jealous hate-filled people speak of you, you are now resting and it doesn’t matter anymore. You did your job here and you did it well. No one needs to worry where you are going. The negative green people only need to worry about themselves. Love you always and forever Michael. You were MAGIC!!!!! THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER THAT EVER LIVED!!!!

    RIP Micheal!

  • miapocca

    Sad.,..Blanket is cute but so SHY..always hiding behind brochures and skirts…they have another Micheal on their hands and I hope Joe can refrain from the harsh discipline with that kid..

  • miapocca

    @Amerie:
    Yes no one shoudl live to bury thier child…its heartbreaking to see her face…reminds me of when Micheal seneraded her..she was so proud and full of love for him then also….

  • Susie#1

    This family has no class or dignity.; if they did they would conduct themselves differently. Joe Jackson was outside the compound dressed in his pimp clothes, intently chewing his cud, the brothers look like followers of Louis Farrakhan. The family arrived over an hour later than the funeral service was to begin which was disrespectful to the guests waiting for them in ninety degree heat. Whenever I look at pictures of the remaining Jackson’s, all I see are dollar signs in front of their eyes. Especially Joe.

  • ambi

    It looks like Prince has light spots on his neck. Is that a sign of vitiligo??? Anyway, those kids are adorable. I hope they are doing well.

  • jdub

  • RICHARD LAFLACHE

    NO RIP FOR MICHAEL DID HE THINK OF HIS KIDS WHEN HE COMMITED SUICIDE..NO SELFISH BASTARD.. WHO THOUGHT
    OF THE NEXT PILL SOOO DESPERATE THAT HE FINALLY TOOK
    THE PROVORAL TO SLEEP… SO BE IN HEAVEN WITH THE OTHER
    DRUGGIES HEATH ANNA NICOLE {With her big smile showing her
    teeth…} DJ ADAMS AND NOW Michael…So where is Beyonce and
    Whitney Houston… again a lie what else is new for the man who has
    songs from 90′s…

    Goodbye, MJ.

  • Susie#1

    @hottest couple ever:

    what does ITA mean? curious

  • Whatever

    @ambi: Are you serious?? You must smoke crack! These kids are NOT his biological children. I hope all the MJ attention can stop now. It seems everyone has forgotten that he’s should be known as the KING OF PEDOFILIA (for those slow ones out there: likes children ;) or KING OF DRUGS or KING OF LIES or, well, I could go on all day. You people are what’s wrong with society!

  • @29

    ITA = I Totally Agree

  • candy

    Michael’s kids look exactly like him.

    They are 100% Michael’s genes

  • Peach

    When is the Funeral DVD coming out and will there be a director’s commentary?

  • Lplusfpluse

    @ambi: I know! I noticed this too, I wonder if they really were spots or just some weird reflection?

  • Stephanie

    Katherine’s face say it all. So heartbreaking. R.I.P Mike

  • Autumnm

    I love Michael and (most) of his family!

    My sympathy is with all of them at this trying time

    His poor Mother, the look on her face broke my heart! People are/were so negative about him but a Mother lost her son and no mother should ever have to bury their child.

    And those kids are so adorable, especially little Blanket! I hope they’re doing okay.

  • diana

    RIP Michael, tortured soul. We miss and love you.

  • Van

    R.I.P Michael. I love you so much!

    Katherine is a strong woman. Idk how I could cope with all of that…

  • http://cutiepie@yahoo.com cutie pie

    RIP Michael Jackson, now maybe they will leave you alone and go after spme of these alive criminals! his mothers look was heartbreaking and the love right there, not no fake a– show of love like some other un named folks!! Who the he– talks about how the brothers were dressed like Farrakhan (what a bunch of a–holes) aby way fu–ks, RIP MJ!!! You will be misse dn by many!

  • exotic

    @m:

    I agree. It is so sad to see a mum mourning the death of his child

  • nm

    Michael, we wiss you like no one elese.
    You were the greatest and you still are.

    I wish all this never happened.
    Rest In Piece, I hope you’re happy, wherever you are <3

    @m:

    I agree. It is so sad to see a mum mourning the death of her child

  • jaye

    People forgot him for years, didn’t remember him until he died. So I hope now it can really be over and we can stop having these meaningless details after life after Michael. The family should have kept it private without this hoopla.

  • Angelica

    @ambi- I think Prince is developing vitiligo too. I’ve seen other pictures where his hands and arms are also spotted. :( Very sad.

  • sarah

    I wish there were some pics of Blanket. He’s such a little cutie!

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    they may have buried him
    but they’re not done exploiting him
    may michael rest in peace, but i hate his family

  • Whalona Wont’s

    @Suzie. STFU.B You act like you know this family or the situation. Bitch Please…

  • Chirpie

    Where was his “good friend” Diana Ross throughout all the death/funeral hoopla? I’ve not seen her name or photo anywhere regarding MJ’s death. Probably passed out drunk somewhere.

  • tim

    RIP Michael, you will be remembered for being a great person, great father, a great son and a great entertainer
