Michael Jackson’s family announced they would release handout footage and photos to the media, days before his funeral. The singer’s brother Randy expressed his disappointment over unapproved aerial footage of the funeral used on television.
He said that the family had asked the media to respect their privacy and to give them moment of privacy to mourn out of the spotlight. Unfortunately, media ignored their wishes and the helicopters recorded and disrupted the private family ceremony.
Randy Jackson is now asking to permanently pulled the footage from the air. Michael Jackson was buried at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California.
