The battle over acting legend Mickey Rooney’s body came to an end late this week when lawyers for the star and for Mickey’s estranged wife Jan came to an agreement over burial location.
It was decided the 93-year-old will be laid to rest at Hollywood Forever cemetery in Los Angeles with a small private reception to follow.
This had been Mickey’s wish ever since splitting with his wife two years ago, according to his lawyer, Vivian Thoreen.
Jan had originally put up a fight, believing the actor should be buried 30 miles west of Hollywood in a group of family plots purchased by the couple before they were estranged.
The cemetery is home to a host of Hollywood legends including Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield and Rudolph Valentino.
Most recently, rock star Mick Jagger buried his long-time girlfriend, L’Wren Scott, at the cemetery after she committed suicide on Mar. 17.
Despite this issue being resolved, drama persists as Mickey made it clear before his death stepson Chris Aber, Jan’s son from a previous relationship, would be banned from his memorial.
Mickey accused Chris in 2011 of elder abuse, claiming he put the actor through “unbearable” treatment. The former child star went to live with another stepson, Mark Aber, after the case was settled and has left Mark the entirety of his $18,000 fortune.
