Assuming the plans don’t change again, Michael Jackson’s private family memorial service will take place at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday at Forest Lawn in L.A.

Immediately after, a motorcade will then go to the Staples Center complex in downtown Los Angeles where the public memorial for him will be held.

The family still hasn’t decided whether the public memorial service for Michael Jackson will be at the Staples Center or the smaller Nokia Theatre.

A decision on that is expected shortly. There has also been no decision yet on the allocation of tickets to the service, which should be in high demand.

As we reported earlier, the original venue, Neverland, was scratched.

Lots of crazy rumors are going around regarding Michael Jackson’s funeral, and the family itself has issued contradictory statements, but we believe this to be the plan, based on the latest reports. More details to come soon, hopefully.
