MJ's burial postponed

MJ's burial postponed

Meanwhile, the police raided another pharmacy in their ongoing probe of the pop star’s sudden death.

The ‘Thriller’ singer’s burial will now take place on September 3 and not on August 29, which would have been Jackson’s 51st birthday, because some family members did not want the pop star to be buried on that day, said Londell McMillan, attorney for the singer’s mother, Katherine Jackson.

The service for friends and family will still be held at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park, in a suburb of Los Angeles at 7 pm. Jackson suffered cardiac arrest and died on June 25.

On Friday, federal drug enforcement agents raided a pharmacy in Beverly Hills that Jackson had used.

Also on Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff approved a deal between executors of Jackson’s 2002 will and concert promoter AEG Live for a travelling exhibition of Michael Jackson memorabilia over the family’s objections.
