Michael Jackson’s passing in 2009 has definitely been a shocking and tragic moment for fans from all over the world. The popular singer was buried in Los Angeles, at the Forest Lawn Cemetery. However, a shocking news was revealed now, being claimed that the famous singer’s grave is actually empty and his body has been placed somewhere else.
The news was reported by Radar Online, which claimed that an insider close to the family revealed that the star’s remains are actually kept at a secret location. The whole thing was allegedly revealed by the King of Pop’s mother, Katherine, who said that Michael’s body is not in the coffin that everyone could see during his 2009 burial service. Allegedly, the family kept Michael’s body on ice for several months before his secret ceremony took place.
“Everyone thinks Michael is buried at Forest Lawn, but he’s not. The family has kept the secret for safety reasons and to fulfill Michael’s wishes. But Katherine has privately revealed the truth to trusted friends,” the source explained. Apparently, the famous family feared that the grave could be robbed or vandalized and this is why they took the decision to hide his body.
However, deciding what to do was very difficult for the Jacksons, the insider said. The source claimed that after months of discussions on this topic, Katherine decided to burn Michael’s remains. “The family fought for months about what to do,” the source said. “Katherine was paranoid, and scared someone would steal his body,” it added. “Michael was used to putting on a show, so the family wanted the monument at Forest Lawn because so many Hollywood legends have been buried there,” the insider concluded.
The source said that the ashes of the star were then placed in a location Michael would have liked, in the nature, at his Neverland farm, a place that the famous singer loved very much. “Michael’s ashes were scattered at his beloved Neverland, which was very special to him,” the insider revealed. “The Giving Tree was his favorite spot on the property. He would spend hours there writing. The family wanted him to rest in peace in a familiar place. The kids can go to the property whenever they want to visit him.”
As imagined, none of these claims has been confirmed for the moment.
