Michael Jackson's family has announced that they will say their final farewells to the late "King of Pop" at a Los Angeles funeral on September 3, not August 29, as had been announced.

The ceremony, which the family said would be strictly limited to relatives and close friends of the star, will be held at 07:00 pm (0200 GMT) at The Great Mausoleum at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

On Tuesday, the Jackson family had announced that they would hold Jackson's final funeral on August 29, the day the singer would have turned 51.

The family did not say why the date was changed.
