Although Jackson died in June and had a large public tribute at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in July, the private family funeral held Sept. 3 appeared to have been arranged with urgency.
Also listed were: $35,000 for burial garments; $1,975 for wardrobe for the family; $2,000 for usher costumes; $3,682 for framing of a photograph of Jackson next to the casket; $959 for embroidery; $11,716 for invitations and programs; $16,000 for flowers; $30,000 for cars and security; and $15,000 for a funeral designer.
There was also a charge of $21,455 for the "funeral repast" at a restaurant after the ceremony.
Jackson's sister Janet provided the cemetery with an advance payment of $49,000, according to the documents.
During the period that the family waited to bury Jackson, they were charged $5,000 a month for holding the remains in a temporary vault.
The documents showed that Jackson's mother, brother Randy and sister Janet were involved in the planning and were mindful that the media would be covering the funeral, although media were not allowed inside the ceremony.
The costs were substantial but "entirely commensurate with the decedent's worldwide status as an entertainer and the world's grief over his death," according to the documents.
Mrs. Jackson's attorneys were granted the request for $1million.
The administrators noted this was in addition to the costs of the Staples Center tribute, which was approved by the court as part of the agreement with entertainment group AEG.
Outside court on Tuesday, lawyer Howard Weitzman, who represents the administrators, said: "I would have done it less expensively. But it was Michael Jackson, who was larger than life. There's no reason he should not have a funeral that's larger than life."
