Michael Jackson’s funeral will be preceded by a circus performance with animals, according to reports.
It is claimed that the animal-loving star will be buried after family and friends have enjoyed a circus parade.
A source said: “Michael was a big animal lover. He had lots of animals over the years and he cared for them extremely well, as if they were human. He had lions, tigers, giraffes and elephants at Neverland, and Bubbles until he became too big and unruly.
“Michael would be very touched that elephants will march at his memorial. He used to say that he only ever felt he could be himself with animals and children.”
