(Newser) – Michael Jackson will be entombed in a Los Angeles-area mausoleum that’s the final Neverland of many other celebrities, the New York Post reports. The Holly Terrace section of the Great Mausoleum is reputedly the most secure section of Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale. The same chamber hosts the remains of Clark Gable, WC Fields, Red Skelton, and Jean Harlow.

Officials have quelled family concerns about vandalism, saying the site is equipped with an abundance of security cameras, a source tells the Post. The mausoleum is full of Michelangelo replicas. “It goes on forever, all these different hallways,” said a celebrity gravesite tracker. The public will have access only to the entrance. Jackson’s five brothers will again be pallbearers at the Aug. 29 funeral, an insider says.
