Michael Jackson's Burial to Cost His Family $50K

Michael Jackson finally has a burial date, but it’s going to cost his family a pretty penny!

As was reported earlier, Michael will be buried on August 29th (what would be his 51st birthday) at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

But he won’t be laid to rest on just any old plot of land—Michael will be buried in a mausoleum, next to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The specific burial place is a crypt in the wall at the Holly Terrace section of the Great Mausoleum.

Other famous occupants of the burial chamber include screen legends Clark Gable, W.C. Fields, Red Skelton and Jean Harlow. Among Jacko's other notable neighbors are Lon Chaney Sr.; Gable's third wife, actress Carole Lombard; writer Louis L'Amour; and Seabiscuit jockey George Woolf.

According to TMZ, the burial, including the cost of providing police and other city services for privacy, could cost up to $50,000.

A Glendale police department source tells TMZ the Jackson family will foot the entire bill. That’s one fancy burial!
