Michael Jackson's Neverland Burial A No-Go

Sometimes you can say never.

Michael Jackson will not be buried at Neverland Ranch.

The Jacksons, who had hoped to have Michael's funeral at his beloved home, were not able to obtain a residential exemption required for a burial on private property. And there will be no viewing there this Friday, as planned

"Contrary to previous news reports, the Jackson family is officially stating that there will be no public or private viewing at Neverland," the family said in a statement. "Plans are underway regarding a public memorial for Michael Jackson, and we will announce those plans shortly."

Sources say that this public funeral will most likely take place at on Tuesday, July 7, at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Insiders say there will also be giant screens outside the facilities for those who won't be able to make it inside.

Do you think Michael should be buried at Neverland? It was his happy place.
