What a mess this is turning out to be!
Iconic American Top 40 radio host Casey Kasem, who passed away in June, is still not buried over two months after his death.
And while his children say his wish was to be buried at Forest Lawn in Glendale, California, his wife Jean Kasem is planning to fly his body to Oslo, Norway to be buried there!
But while Jean claims that she's doing this because she has Norwegian blood in here, her nephew claims that is NOT the case at all!
Here's what the nephew Tommy Thompson said

Some of the most devoted fans in history are those of Michael Jackson, so it is no surprise that the fans have come out in droves to shower his mausoleum with gifts.
The staff at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA have realized the commodity that they have with the King of Pop, so they've decided to bank on it! Now, if you want to bring MJ a gift at his gravesite, the staff will gladly take it to him for you - for a $3 surcharge.
This new gifting policy is now the only way to have tokens of affection brought into the singer's mausoleum. And by that, we mean flowers, because the new rules also state that anything but flowers, meaning candles, teddy bears and shrines, will be immediately tossed. And, should the tomb get a little crowded, the flowers will then be placed outside of his final resting place.
Hmm. We don't think too many fans are going to be happy with this arrangement. We're ready to hear all kinds of backlash!

In order to commemorate his death on June 25th, fans of Michael Jackson will be allowed at Forest Lawn cemetery to pay their respects to the pop star.
No one will be allowed inside the cemetery's Great Mausoleum, where Jackson's body was buried.
Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said:
"We understand that Forest Lawn is working with the Jackson family for some kind of commemoration. We will be working closely with Forest Lawn to ensure the safety of those who want to pay their respects to Michael Jackson while ensuring the safety of others who are coming to the cemetery to pay respects to their loved ones."
And how much is that gonna cost the city of El Lay?!

Another day, another Jackson family legal dispute!
The latest comes from Randy, who sent out a tweet to his fans letting them know that he was attempting to get cemetery restrictions bypassed so that they could visit Michael's grave on the anniversary of his passing.
One more thing…. I’m meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale.
Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of ForestLawn, on the 25th.
I'll will inform you all soon.
However, this has infuriated the families of others buried near Michael who don't want to see just anyone allowed through! Clark Cable III, grandson of the buried close by Hollywood icon Clark Gable, has said he's concerned the ground "wouldn't be as sacred" if Randy gets his wish.
What do U think?? Should Michael's fans be able to visit his grave or should that area be kept private for the sake of the other families of those buried near him??
