Celebrities Attend Michael Jackson Memorial

As the memorial for Michael Jackson takes place, his family and fans have flocked from all over to witness the singer being laid to rest. At the Staples Center, attendees were handed 14-page  programs in full color with anecdotes from his family.

Fans of the pop star include famous friends, including Magic Johnson, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson among others. The Kardashian clan showed up to lend their moral support. Kim Kardashian tells Us Weekly, “It’s just really important to be here to support the Jackson family. My family and I have known them for years, so it’s really special to be here for them.”

The mix of celebrities is fascinating, to say the least, with Usher giving Brooke Shields a kiss on the cheek with his arrival and Dionne Warwick chatting with Kobe Bryant. As more arrive, they’ll be added to our gallery of celebrity attendees.
