Tragic singer is laid to rest in secret

MICHAEL JACKSON has reportedly been laid to rest.

The King Of Pop is believed to have been interred in a mausoleum owned by his close friend, Motown mogul Berry Gordy, in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills on Thursday.

Family members, including Jackson's dad Joe and sister La Toya, were present at the secret ceremony, reports Britain's Daily Star.

The final farewell took place just hours after Jackson's brain was returned to the clan, following the organ's removal by coroners for testing to determine the cause of death.

A source tells the newspaper, "After Michael's high-profile funeral, the family were desperate to say goodbye privately and away from the cameras. His mother Katherine in particular was very uncomfortable with his body being in pieces due to the autopsies and wanted him laid to rest as soon as they were allowed.

"Within hours of the brain being returned, Michael was placed in the crypt. There was a casual ceremony with around 20 close friends and family.

"There were no prayers said, no speeches, everyone just reflected silently on their personal memories of Michael."

And former friend of Jackson's, Uri Geller, has indicated that the reports are true.

He tells British morning show GMTV, "As far as I understand he has (been buried), but rumours are flying constantly non stop."

Jackson died on 25 June after suffering a cardiac arrest. His family staged a private ceremony at the Forest Lawn funeral home before celebrating his life at a televised star-studded event at the Staples Center in L.A. last month.
