Glendale Police officials have confirmed 's fans will be welcomed at the city's Forest Lawn cemetery on the anniversary of the King of Pop's death after a series of discussions between owners and the Jackson family. The news follows Randy Jackson's claims that the cemetery will be open to the public on June 25, so pop fans can pay their respects to his late brother.

But devotees will not be allowed inside the cemetery's Great Mausoleum, where Jackson's body was interred in September. Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "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."
