JACKSON

Media Choppers Disturbed Burial

Even in death, Michael Jackson couldn't avoid the glare of the limelight. Randy Jackson, the late pop star's brother, complained that despite the family's request for a private burial service, media helicopters disrupted the service. "I was dismayed last night and again today at the coverage I saw on television of our ceremony for Michael," Jackson said in a statement. "We had asked the media to respect the privacy and the sanctity of this event; to give us one moment of privacy to mourn as a family out of the public spotlight." About 200 friends and family gathered for the service at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale on Thursday. Jackson asked that the media cease airing the footage, and said the media helicopters "disrupted" the service.
