Celebuzz / July 7, 2009

Deceased pop legend Michael Jackson will be honored with a five-star blowout in downtown Los Angeles today, but Monday night the former King of Pop’s family had a far more intimate gathering.

People magazine reports that members of the Jackson family, including Michael’s brother Randy and sister La Toya, arrived at the Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks and Mortuaries at approximately 7 p.m. last night.

According to People, mourners were delivered to Forest Lawn last night in about a dozen cars. La Toya, wearing a straw hat, displayed no emotions, according to witnesses.

Jackson’s body will reportedly be transported from Forest Lawn to the Staples Center for his memorial service, following a private ceremony this morning.
