New York, (ANI): Motown founder Berry Gordy has denied that Michael Jackson"s body has been stashed in his family crypt at Forest Lawn cemetery in the Hollywood Hills. The denial by the maestro"s spokeswoman has come at a time when the Jackson family is continuing with their debate on deciding a final resting place for the late King of Pop.
"I can assure you it is absolutely incorrect. (Michael Jackson's body) is not there," the New York Daily News quoted the spokeswoman as saying.
Late Michael Jackson's death certificate lists Forest Lawn Memorial Park as the body's temporary resting place. A Jackson family spokesman also said that the family was yet to decide on making any announcements in relation to the final burial plans.
Rev. Lucious W. Smith of the Friendship Baptist Church in Pasadena said: "When they are ready, the family will let the world know where he (Michael Jackson) is. There are certain things that any family has the right to decide in privacy without prying eyes. This is their son, brother, father."
