According to Page Six, there was no body in the golden coffin at Michael Jackson's public memorial at the Staples Center last week.

"The coffin was empty. There was no body there at all," a source told Page Six.

Earlier that day, an insider emailed me to tell my loyal readers not to be fooled by the shenanigans going on in California. She said the casket was empty and that Jackson's body -- minus his brain -- was already in a crypt at a cemetery in L.A.

My source said the brain would be placed in the casket at a later date when it was released by the L.A. coroner's office. Despite denials by the Jackson family, my source's words rang true when, after the memorial, Jackson's "body" went missing sending paparazzi on a mad scramble around L.A. in search of his mortal remains.

She also told me, among other things, that AEG, the firm that booked Jackson to perform 50 concerts in London was also organizing the public memorial fiasco -- and they wanted the show to go on, body or no body. AEG originally planned to charge Jackson's fans a grip to attend the public memorial. But the Jackson family nixed those plans.

  • trynabeme

  • anti-PC

    The Post?

    No thanks.

    I won't believe it until a more reputable source says so.

  • Krysi J

    Has anyone ever seen "The footage you were never meant to see" its a Michael Jackson documentary on the Martin Bashir documentary......Michael had his own camera taping scenes that Martin Bashir intentionally left out. Its on the TUBE if anyone is interested in the truth. I may have been late discovering this, but for the rest of you who are just as behind go check it out.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. They'll be talking bout MJ 'til the end of time. Ain't it grand? Or should I say, ain't he grand?

  • anti-PC

    Krysi J,

    I heard about it and I want to see it.
    Judging from the blog world, Martin Bashir is a very hated man right about now.

  • iscream

    @ Sandra did you copy and paste this story from the last time you told us this information? I feel like I'm having DeJaVu.

    Oh

    I know what it is. You guys can't find any other news to report on Mr. I sold 9 Million records worldwide since my death that you just repeat the stories.

    I'm not mad. The more you guys keep him in the news the more people will realize how important he really was to the music industry. So thanks for this post :D

    Btw did you see the video of people saying AEG killed Mike. Look it up maybe you'll find some new info to post on him. Considering they wanted to charge ppl to get in the stadium that they own. :|

  • melinla

    I don't think it was that hard to figure out - there were 2 coffins and no cameras allowed in the cemetery... The one that delivered the body went in and the empty one came out and was transported to the Staples Center. Not that anyone cares....besides why would you want to cart a dead body around the city...the family is grieving for pete sakes!! I've said too much I'm going to sit down now.

  • coaretained

    I seen it @ krysi.. LOVEDED it ( in the gay guys voices from In Living Color)... gotta do some more MJ homage when I get home...

    If he was or wasn't.. I don't care.. does anyone else here?? Go head.. I'll wait...

    Where is Chris Tucker... I hope he's ok.. I know they were close...

  • iscream

    @ Krysi

    You know I saw it. I posted the link here once before hoping people could see how the media just did what they wanted to do to make a mockery of this man.

    It broke my heart how he finally opened up and shared his life with the world just for Martin to edit it to make him look like a monster. I know guilt must be in his heart right about now.

    Something as simple as him saying. My father did such and such but he was a genius. Why cut out "he was a genius". Martin popped all that shyt durning commentary after the film stopped but said the total opp durning taping. Smh.

    & the madness continues.
