'King of Pop' Michael Jackson has finally been laid to rest without any grand ceremony.

The ‘Thriller' hitmaker, who died at the age of 50 on June 25, was buried at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills without a fan in sight, Mirror online reported.

Jackson’s family has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep the exact location secret as they are reportedly worried that his followers will throng the resting place of their idol.

They are even considering moving Jackson’s body if security becomes an issue, the newspaper said.

“Michael has already been laid to rest, but other than the Jackson family and the management at Forest Lawn, no one knows the exact spot,” a cemetery source said.

“Staff at the cemetery have been fed several different locations, it’s as if they are hoping to confuse everyone so it can’t leak out.

The fear is that thousands of Jackson fans will descend on the cemetery and create a security issue or maybe even damage or deface the grave,” the source added.

The pop icon was laid to rest without a service because his family were satisfied with the ceremony that took place before his Los Angeles memorial concert.

Earlier last week, Jackson’s brain, which was taken out for some clinical tests, was reunited with his body.
