Cemetery Charging Visitors for Leaving Gifts?
I can only imagine the craziness of Forest Lawn Cemetery since the death of Michael Jackson, but charging visitors for leaving gifts? With the cremation rate rapidly rising I guess Forest Lawn is grabbing the “bull by the horns” and carving out a whole new revenue stream.
It’s gonna cost Michael Jackson fans if they want to continue leaving gifts inside the King of Pop’s mausoleum — because TMZ has learned the cemetery is now charging a special $3 MJ delivery fee.
According to sources at the infamous burial space, Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA has decided to take down the stage where fans were previously allowed to place gifts — and are now enacting a new gifting policy … so long as fans pay the price and abide by the rules.
Effective immediately, cemetery staff will take gifts for MJ inside the mausoleum — where fans are still forbidden from setting foot — for a $3 fee … oh yeah, as long as those gifts are flowers.
Anything else — teddy bears, posters, picture frames, candles — will get dumped … and if they run out of space inside, we’re told excess gifts will have to brave the elements outside.
