Jermaine Jackson Wants Neverland Burial

Jermaine Jackson doesn't want his brother Michael to be buried with "bad people".

The former Jackson 5 bassist - who is still devastated by the death of his pop legend sibling, who passed away of a suspected cardiac arrest last month - wants the singer to be laid to rest at his former Neverland ranch and not in a public cemetery.

He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I think it's a great possibility Neverland will be his final resting place. We have to think about security - we can control that there. In a public cemetery we couldn't.

"The options are Neverland or the main cemetery in Los Angeles. I'm totally against the idea of a public cemetery. I just don't like it.

"He's done so much to make the world special - and he needs to be somewhere special. He should be somewhere where it's safe and where he isn't sharing the ground with other people who are not good human beings. At those places they bury people who have done bad things in their life.

"Why should he be in the company of these bad people? He should be by himself. His world is Neverland."

Michael died on June 25 aged 50 and had a public memorial service was held on July 7, but his body is yet to be buried.

However, Jermaine - who wants to turn the 2,500-acre estate into a memorial so fans can come from around the world to pay their respects - says the final decision is down to their mother and father, Katherine and Joe.

Katherine - who has temporary custody of Michael's three children, Prince Michael I, 12, 11-year-old Paris and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as 'Blanket' - isn't keen on her son's final resting place being at Neverland but could change her mind if the kids are given ownership of the ranch.

A source said: "Katherine is still opposed to Michael being buried at Neverland, but would relent if it could be arranged for Michael's children to gain ownership of the property. If they could have complete ownership, Katherine would approve."

She had been against the idea as authorities had searched Neverland after Michael was accused of child molestation - charges which he was eventually acquitted of in 2005 - prompting the singer to abandon the property.
