Michael Jackson will be laid to rest in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. on August 29 on what would have been the King of Pop's 51st birthday.

So says his father, Joe Jackson.

The elder Jackson, who never misses an opportunity to cash in pay tribute to his late son, indicated that the burial plans were made final in the past few days.

Joe, who now resides in Las Vegas, has spoken out on several occasions since Michael's death, including a really odd conversation with Larry King and another interview during which he claimed Omer Bhatti was his grandson.

Jackson said he is supportive of the Los Angeles Police Department probe into his son's June 25 death so far - but also said that cops and the DEA may end up making Dr. Conrad Murray "the fall guy for a whole lot of people."

He did not elaborate.

Joe Jackson says Michael will be buried August 29.

Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor and with him the day he died. Murray's lawyer has confirmed the doctor is being investigated for administering the anesthetic Propofol and possibly other drugs. He denies wrongdoing.

Joe Jackson, who lives apart from the singer's mom, Katherine Jackson, says she's taken Michael's death particularly hard, and frequently bursts out in tears.

Having had a contentious relationship with his son, Joe said he tried to see his son months before his death, but "security guards wouldn't let me get to him."
