Randy Jackson Wants Fan Access To Michael
Randy Jackson has revealed he is in negotiations to allow fans to visit his brother Michael Jackson's burial site to mark the anniversary of the pop legend's death next month.
Michael Jackson's brother wants fans to be able to visit his grave.
Randy Jackson is hoping to allow people into the private mausoleum in California's Forest Lawn Memorial Park to mark the anniversary of his death next month.
He tweeted: "I'm meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of ForestLawn, on the 25th. I will inform you all soon. (sic)"
The area where Michael - who died of acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 on June 25 2009 - is buried is normally off limits to non-family members and Randy's intentions have infuriated the families of other people laid to rest there.
Legendary actor Clark Gable's grandson, Clark Gable III, told gossip website TMZ the mausoleum "wouldn't be as sacred" if just anyone could go inside.
Recently, Michael's ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley appealed to fans to send silk sunflowers to the cemetery to brighten up the singer's final resting place.
The brunette star wrote on her website: "Greetings MJ Fans.
"While visiting him a few days ago at Forest Lawn, Riley and I couldn't help but notice that, while there are a few bouquets, candles and gifts there is a very large empty space around him and in front of him that could use a whole lot more.
"I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans, I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it, the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time, which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now.

After Lisa's request, flower grower Jason Levin delivered around 2,000 sunflowers to the massive marble and concrete mausoleum which house Michael's remains.
