Michael Jackson, who died of propofol intoxication after suffering a respiratory arrest in June 2009, was buried nearly three months after the scheduled date due to wrangling between Janet Jackson and her brother’s estate, it has been revealed.
According to Randall Sullivan’s biography of Michael Jackson – Untouchable, Janet put up the 40,000-dollar deposit at Forest Lawn to secure a spot for Michael but refused to let the funeral take place until the money was repaid. Ronald Williams, of Talon Executive Services — a private-security company that dispatched a team to the King of Pop’s rented chateau in Holmby Hills on the night of his death — said that hours after Jackson died, La Toya and her boyfriend, Jeffre Phillips, arrived at the house demanding to be admitted
. They reportedly said “we’re family and we should have access to the house.” Also Katherine Jackson also arrived that night where she telephoned Grace Rwaramba, the recently terminated longtime nanny to Michael’s children.
