MJ fans paying 3k bribes to see burial site

The singer’s family was said to be fuming after followers were littering the marble tomb at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park with disrespectful photos.

“The family believe some former staff members who can find their way around existing security have been smuggling in fans for visits and charging them up to £3,000 for the privilege,” The Daily Star quoted a source close to the family as saying.
“Fans are taking in memorabilia and posing for inappropriate or even disrespectful photos next to Michael’s tomb. It has got completely out of hand. Photos of Michael’s final resting place have been turning up on websites all over the net and it is really starting to upset the family.

“Then there’s the worry about safety and security. There is a risk the fans could scratch or deface Michael’s marble tomb or take away keepsakes left behind by friends and family.
“The family are now taking steps to drastically reduce the number of people able to visit Michael’s burial site and security has been tightened up. As part of the new measures, the list of people actually allowed into the mausoleum will now include family only and no one else,” the source added.
