Despite reports that Michael Jackson would be laid to rest at his beloved Neverland Ranch, the King of Pop's dad says otherwise.

"That's not true," Joe Jackson told reporters of the Neverland funeral story at a press conferance outside the family's L.A. compound. He also added that the funeral won't take place until they get the results from a second autopsy, now underway.

The L.A. coroner's office conducted an autopsy on Friday, but have deferred the cause of death decision while toxicology results are finalized. Those results are due in a few weeks.
