Janet Jackson Denies Allegations She Had Michael's Funeral Put On Hold

Janet Jackson is angrily denying allegations she held up her brother Michael’s funeral for more than two months over money.

A new book, Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson, excerpted in Vanity Fair, calls Janet "Frugal.  Even stingy,” after she allegedly demanded a $40,000 deposit for the funeral be repaid before burying Michael.

Now, Janet's attorney issued a statement, "To falsely accuse Ms. Jackson of holding up her brother's funeral over money is outrageous. Ms. Jackson never delayed the funeral in any way."
