Janet Jackson reportedly did not impede her late brother Michael’s burial in any way.

The King of Pop died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, with Conrad Murray convicted of his involuntary manslaughter.

Michael was laid to rest many months after he passed away.

It was rumoured that Janet caused the delay, as she demanded that the $40,000 she put down as a deposit for his plot be returned before the ceremony took place.

Apparently the speculation simply isn’t true.

"Janet absolutely didn't delay Michael's funeral, that just never happened," a source told Radar Online.

"The main reason for the delay was because the family just couldn't agree on where Michael should be buried. Jermaine and Randy wanted him buried at Neverland but Katherine was absolutely steadfast against that.

"Throw in the fact that Michael's kids had their own ideas and were grieving and there was obviously a lot going on. Janet was just trying to do the right thing at the time and she was very supportive of Michael's kids and her mother during that very dark time. For anyone else to say otherwise is just categorically false.”
