Michael Jackson's closest friend Elizabeth Taylor did not go to his memorial service because she was snubbed by the star's family, it was claimed.
Taylor publicly said she did not want to go as she intended mourning privately for the late King of Pop.
But columnist Cindy Adams claims that the actress did not go after the family refused to invite her to any of the private events.
"Elizabeth Taylor was snubbed. Not accidentally. Deliberately. Willfully. Given short shrift. Put on the B-Minus list," Cindy Adams wrote in the New York Post.
"Understand, as I'd reported before his death, she's confined to a wheelchair. "Still, despite her physicality, with staffers and nurses and assistants and whoevers, she was flying to London for his concert opening.
"Hopping a ride on the private plane of my friends, publisher Dwight Opperman and his author wife Julie Chrystyn. So, when it comes to Michael, she sure wasn't looking to hide.
"The family purposefully dissed her. Didn't want her. Offered her a seat someplace in the Staples Center, but not with them.
"Not near them. Nor was the world's most famous name given an invite or access to any of their private events. Not one.
"Why? Because she was always Michael's friend. Not the family's. Michael's. They resented her.
"Elizabeth Taylor was crushed. She's still crying."
