Michael Jackson Was Reportedly Cremated & His Ashes Were Made Into Necklaces For His Children

It looks like Michael Jackson’s coffin may actually be empty.

A new report from Radar Online shares that Jackson’s body was cremated shortly after his death in 2009. According to the report, the singer’s body was kept on ice in a morgue for a few months after his death until the family was ready to have him cremated. The ashes were then split between “The Giving Tree” on his beloved Neverland Ranch property and among his three children — Paris, Prince, and Blanket.

A source close to the situation shares that the children were given broken-heart shaped necklaces with his ashes in it. The necklaces are similar to the one that Paris wore at his tear-filled memorial service, and Jackson also had a similar necklace wrapped around his wrist while he laid in the coffin. But while the necklaces may hold a lot of value to Michael’s three children — they don’t wear them out in public very often.

“She and her brothers rarely wear the necklaces in public. They keep them in locked boxes at home, as they’re afraid of losing the last remains of their father.”

This means that Jackson’s actual coffin may have been a ploy to distract fans from the fact that he was actually cremated. As fans know, Michael’s casket was put in a crypt at Forest Lawn Memorial Park’s Great Mausoleum in Glendale, California, but it is empty. And this is bad news for Jackson’s molestation accusers who were hoping to obtain DNA from Jackson’s body to make a case against the singer.

“There are at least 11 more Michael Jackson victims who had hoped their stories would be proved by digging up his body and examining his remains and taking DNA swabs,” the insider dished. “Unfortunately, they will never get the chance to have this proof come to light, as Jackson’s mausoleum has been empty for years.”

Now, Jackson’s accusers will have no way of proving that any sort of inappropriate behavior happened to them, and it’s really just their word against Michael and his family’s — who have continued to maintain that he was totally innocent. While Michael has been in the news a lot after the Leaving Neverland documentary aired, so have his kids.

As The Inquisitr shared, Paris Jackson recently clapped back at a troll who slammed her for smoking pot, telling the 22-year-old that her late father would be ashamed of her. The social media user also referred to Paris as a “degenerate” and a “druggie.” But Jackson clapped back against the hater with a short but sweet response.

“Because an organic medicinal plant from mother earth with dozens of healing properties that is legal where i live and used to help suffering people around the world = meth,” Paris tweeted.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time nor the last that Paris will be the subject of a social media attack.
