Costume Designer Confirms Michael Jackson Buried Without Signature Glove


Michael Jackson


Explaining why the famous white sequined glove was not buried with the late singer, Michael Bush says, 'To Michael, the glove was 'Billie Jean'. That represented that song.'

Michael Jackson was buried in full make-up and wearing an outfit inspired by all the costumes the King of Pop wore during his career. On the one-year anniversary of his death, the pop superstar's longtime costume and wardrobe designers were commissioned to create a final image for the dead superstar - so he could go to the grave looking his best.

Dennis Tompkins, Michael Bush and Karen Faye teamed up as they had for 25 years to perfect Jackson's last look - the items he'd be buried in at Forest Lawn Cemetery. In a TV documentary, which will air in America on Friday night, June 25, Faye says, "It was an honor... I knew how he wanted to look, so I did it for his family and his children."

Meanwhile, Jackson's longtime stylists Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush spent nine hours creating the clothes for Jackson's funeral. Tompkins also designed a crown which was placed on the King of Pop's casket.

He recalls, "When the casket was brought in at Forest Lawn, Prince, Paris and Blanket lifted it (crown) and put it on the center." And Bush has confirmed the tragic singer's famous white sequined glove was not buried with Jackson: "To Michael, the glove was 'Billie Jean'. That represented that song. That's not Michael Jackson."
