Michael Jackson will be buried on August 29, the day that would have been his 51st birthday, his father has claimed.

Joseph Jackson also told the New York Daily News that the burial will take place at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Jackson’s body was reportedly moved from a cemetery last week because the singer’s mother was worried it might be stolen.

Katherine Jackson wanted the coffin to be moved to a freezer room for security.

The burial had been delayed to allow for toxicology tests to be returned.
