Michael Jackson will no longer be laid to rest on his birthday.
The family on Friday announced that his planned Aug. 29 burial will be delayed by five days because some family members did not want the service to coincide with the date of his birth, said Londell McMillan, attorney for the singer’s mother, Katherine Jackson.
McMillan said there was a miscommunication within the family about the burial date.
“I think there were two dates floated originally,” McMillan told Reuters, saying some family members wanted him buried on the birthday and others objected.
The burial service for friends and family will still be held at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park, in a suburb of Los Angeles at 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT) on Sept. 3.
