Jackson To Be Buried In James Brown Casket?
MICHAEL JACKSON will be laid to rest in the same make of solid bronze casket as JAMES BROWN.
Batesville Casket Company bosses have received an order for a $25,000 (£16,600) custom casket, called The Promethean, for the late King of Pop, according to TMZ.com.
The 14-karat gold-plated casket comes with a dark blue velvet interior and a hand-polished, mirror finish.
New reports suggest the pop star's remains will be buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning (07Jul09) before a public memorial service at the Staples Center, where Jackson was rehearsing for his comeback This Is It shows before his death last week (25Jun09).
The cemetery has refused to comment about rumoured burial plans.
