Michael Jackson's burial postponed as kids take Vegas break

Monday August 24, 2009

Michael Jackson's remains are due to be buried on September 3, rather than the expected date of August 29 - which would have been the singer's 51st birthday.

In a statement from the Jackson family, the reason for the delay has not been revealed.

The late king of pop is to be buried in a private ceremony at the Glendale Forest-Lawn memorial park.

Meanwhile Michael's three children - Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Blanket - have been spotted enjoying a fun-filled trip to Las Vegas to help them get over their loss.

Accompanied by grandmother Katherine and a nanny, the youngsters were spotted splashing around in the pool at a luxury hotel complex and sipping on non-alcoholic strawberry-banana daiquiris.

It was familiar ground for the children, who lived at the same Palms Hotel resort with their father for a spell in 2008.
