Late Michael Jackson's coffin has been secretly moved in Motown founder Berry Gordy's private crypt at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, according to the sources.

The Jackson family decided to move the casket after the Thriller hitmaker's fans started gathering try and get a look at the coffin.

"The Jackson family was not pleased and ordered the casket to be placed in the basement for security reasons," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

The source also revealed that Michael's sister LaToya, in charge of her brother's body, picked out everything he wore in the viewing casket.

The 50 year old singer, who apparently died of the cardiac arrest, was wearing two black gloves, black trousers studded with black beads, a pearl-beaded white jacket he wore to the Grammys, and an over-sized gold belt that resembled a championship boxing belt.

Michael's signature white glove has also been placed in the casket.
