"To falsely accuse Ms. Jackson of holding up her brother's funeral over money is outrageous," writes her lawyer
on behalf of the 46-year-old superstar. "Ms. Jackson never delayed the funeral in any way. In fact, she paid for the funeral and was reimbursed for some of those expenses by Michael Jackson's estate in the year after the services took place. In addition, there were other private costs associated with Michael Jackson's passing that Ms. Jackson incurred and for which she never sought reimbursement."
