Mickey Rooney will be laid to rest in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

The body of the Hollywood legend - who passed away on Sunday (06.04.14) aged 93 from natural causes and complications due to diabetes - had been at the centre of a dispute between his attorney Mike Augustine and his wife Janice Rooney, but they have now reached an agreement and the actor's final wish will be granted.

Mr. Augustine, Trustee of Mickey's estate, told People: ''I just signed the settlement papers.''

Janice had wanted the burial to take place in Westlake, where the couple lived together until 2012, but has now agreed the 'Night at the Museum star' can be buried alongside Hollywood icons including Douglas Fairbanks, Jayne Mansfield, and Charlie Chaplin,

She and the lawyer will now make plans for a small family funeral over the next few days, and are hoping to arrange a larger memorial service over the coming weeks.

It was recently revealed Janice - who was married to Mickey for 35 years - and his eight children were disinherited in the 'Andy Hardy' star's will, with his modest $18,000 estate going to his stepson and full-time carer Mark Aber and his wife Charlene.

Mickey argued that Jan receiving his Social Security benefits and some of his pension earnings would be adequate compensation, and said that his children were in a better financial position than himself.

Let him rest in peace but the rest of the people in that cemetary will roll over in their graves forever because Mickey Rooney was a nasty person because he always wanted more(I said that to his face).
