Vanity Fair Admits To Mistake In Bombshell Michael Jackson Funeral Story
Posted on Oct 15, 2012 @ 06:30AM 

By Jen Heger - Radar Assistant Managing Editor

Vanity Fair is admitting to making a mistake in a story in its October issue in which it claimed Janet Jackson delayed her brother Michael's funeral for several months in a dispute over money, but the magazine's admission will surely not satisfy the Nasty singer, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Janet was accused of delaying her brother Michael's funeral three years ago because she wanted a hefty deposit of $40k returned that she had put down. According to Vanity Fair, which obtained an excerpt of a new biography on the King of Pop by Randall Sullivan, "Janet put up the $40,000 deposit at Forest Lawn to secure a spot for Michael, but refused to let the funeral take place until the money was repaid."

Janet's lawyer demanded a full retraction of the story, and RadarOnline.com has confirmed through multiple sources that the Control singer did not delay Michael's funeral because she demanded repayment of 40k.

Despite that fact, in a surprising turn of events, the magazine told E! News that it stands by its story and asserted that new, just-released records indicate Janet's deposit was actually 49k. "Vanity Fair stands by Randall Sullivan's assertion that Janet Jackson's demand to be reimbursed for her deposit on her brother's burial plot was one of the reasons Michael Jackson's funeral was delayed," the mag told E! News. "Sullivan's sources told him that the amount of the deposit was $40,000, but records released last week indicate that the amount of the deposit was $49,000. Vanity Fair will make that correction on VF.com."

According to an updated story on Vanity Fair's website says, "a previous version of this blog post reported that the amount of Janet's deposit was $40,000. Records released last week indicate that the actual amount was $49,000."

RadarOnline.com thoroughly reviewed court and public records in an attempt to locate the documents Vanity Fair referenced and couldn't find any. When asked to provide the "new documents," Vanity Fair spokesperson said: "I was mistaken. They were not new."

"Janet never attempted to delay Michael's funeral for any reason relating money issues. In fact, Janet never tried to delay it for any reason and wanted the funeral to take place as soon as possible because of the ongoing stress and angst it was causing Katherine and Michael's children," a source close to the situation tells us.

They just want to know the deal with Michael and Forest Lawn  :LolLolLolLol:  Surely there must be at least one closet believer working for that magazine who probably suspects something isn’t on the up and up.  But if they thought they were going to bully Janet into giving up the goodies, they were in for a major disappointment.  Janet is nobody’s pushover.  The circumstances surrounding that deposit being returned for what ever reason was and is none of their damn business.

Was an 'official' (i.e. by the Jackson's) reason ever given for why the funeral was delayed for so long?

I believe that this is a campaign of the Jacksons against tabloids or tabloidish articles and here is the first good result. VF learned her lesson, and I guess more will follow to admit their mistakes or even better to first check facts before publishing.

I don´t think that this is a good result. They are not withdrawing the story, they just "admit" that the stated amount of money for the deposit wasn´t correct.
That´s why I was like  :LolLolLolLol:
That´s cheeky.

I  :LolLolLolLol: too when I read the article, but still I do think it is in a way a good result, it's a start that VF admits its mistake. Okay, the story hasn't been witdrawn, but I consider this as a progress and more important these articles about the battle between Janet and VF is getting media attention and awareness. At least these are my thoughts about it. :icon_e_smile:

Yes, I remember that 'excuse'. Since when does a coroner keep a grieving family waiting over 2 months - they take samples for testing and release the body asap. Just another strong indication that there was no 'grieving family' or 'body'!

As for the VF admission - what garbage! The 'mistake' they're admitting to is that the deposit was 49k not 40. And that sentence at the end:

"Janet never attempted to delay Michael's funeral for any reason relating money issues. In fact, Janet never tried to delay it for any reason and wanted the funeral to take place as soon as possible because of the ongoing stress and angst it was causing Katherine and Michael's children," a source close to the situation tells us.


So come on 'journalists' - if it wasn't Janet's fault, how about you investigate exactly why the funeral was delayed?! Don't just leave it as 'a source tells us blah, blah, blah....'

I agree.  They don’t need the whole brain.  They get samples ASAP and return the organs to the body.  Don’t they know we watch CSI  :icon_lol:  We’re no idiots by any stretch of the imagination.
