Some of Michael Jackson‘s family members apparently wanted to say their goodbyes under the moonlight.
Less than 12 hours before tomorrow’s funeral service and blow-out memorial at Staples Center, a number of family members made the trip Monday night to Forest Lawn cemetery in the Hollywood Hills, possibly for a private viewing of the entertainer’s body.
KCAL-TV footage showed a hearse driving in and backing up toward a building on the grounds.
A massive law-enforcement contingent started sealing off the area late this afternoon, but E! News caught glimpses of brother Randy Jackson and sister La Toya arriving.
In addition to the large LAPD presence, there was a security team checking in vehicles. The head of the team tells us that everyone involved signed a confidentiality agreement.
Jackson family friend Majestik Magnificence tells E! News that what is taking place at the cemetery is not a funeral service, and that he’s expected at the family’s Encino home Tuesday at 6 a.m. to join the caravan to Forest Lawn.
A rep for the Jacksons has yet to comment.
“Your thoughts? Should they have made Michael Jackson’s memorial private or public and take him to the Staples Center for the world to see?”
