Michael Jackson to Be Buried on His Birthday

By: Celebuzz / August 17, 2009

If Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, is to be believed, the deceased King of Pop will be getting a very special gift on his 51st birthday—a final resting place.

The elder Jackson tells the New York Daily News that his son will be buried on August 29, the day that he would have turned 51.

Jackson’s body has been awaiting burial since his death from heart failure on June 25.

Better late than never!

The burial will take place at 10 a.m. at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles, according to Joe Jackson, who says he will then return to Las Vegas to receive a celebrity star in his son’s honor at the Brenden Theatres at the Palms hotel and casino.
