Jackson Is Not Attending Reality Star's Funeral

Pop superstar MICHAEL JACKSON will not attend the funeral of British reality star JADE GOODY despite reports he is eager to take part in the late TV personality's memorial service.
Rumours have circulated in the U.K. tabloid press suggesting the Thriller hitmaker has vowed to personally pay his respects when Goody is laid to rest during a public service in London on 4 April (09).
Jackson reportedly reached out to the star, who came to world attention when she showcased her cancer battle through TV and magazine deals, and offered her words of comfort after her illness was deemed terminal.
However, Goody's publicist Max Clifford has dismissed the reports that Jackson plans to attend the service - insisting the singer didn't want to detract attention from Goody on the day of her funeral.
Clifford tells Sky News, "Michael was never, ever coming, it was never on the agenda. He also feels the focus of the funeral should be about her and her family.
"But he has sent a lovely message of condolence to her family, that she was a brave girl and that her message will save a lot of lives, and he will be sending flowers."
Goody died on 22 March (09), aged 27.
