Michael Jackson was laid to rest last night at Forest Lawn Memorial Park . The invitation only event was to have taken place at sunset but it was well past that time when the family arrived for the gathering with their invited celebrity guests.
In a tree-lined clearing, 200 people gathered for the interment of Michael Jackson at the Forest Lawn Mausoleum. The family was seated together, with Katherine Jackson sitting beside Joe Jackson. Brothers Randy, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon wore one white glove, a red tie and a red rose on the lapel of their matching black suits.
Paris Jackson and her brothers Prince and Blanket placed a crown on their father’s golden casket. Music was provided by Gladys Knight, who sang His Eye is on the Sparrow and Clifton Davis, who sang Never Can Say Goodbye.
Among the guests were Elizabeth Taylor, Barry Bonds, Al Sharpton, Macaulay Culkin, Mila Kunis, Chris Tucker, Kenny Ortega, Corey Feldman, Quincy Jones and Lisa Marie Presley.
Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier is dating LaToya Jackson and is reportedly planning to move into Jackson’s Holmby Hills estate in December, when the Jackson lease expires – see details here.
