Now this is really horrible. Poor James Brown has not been buried yet! He is still above ground. Now I think that this is not so good. That body must be deteriorating. You would think that celebrities would have this all planned out. You cannot live forever. You would think that plots and burials would all be picked out. Poor man!

Nearly three weeks after James Brown's funeral, the "Godfather of Soul" is yet to be buried, and his former partner is contesting his will in a bid to receive half of his estate.

Brown's body is being kept in a temperature-controlled room at his home in South Carolina in the bronze and gold-plated coffin used for his funeral in Augusta, Georgia, on December 30, funeral director Charlie Reid told Reuters on Wednesday.

The family is building a mausoleum at the home on Beech Island and would bury Brown when it was finished, likely next month, said Reid, adding that he checked on the body daily.

"These things (delaying burials) occur from time to time. It's not something that's usual but for special occasions it's something that can occur," he said. A lawyer involved in the case said the burial would likely attract thousands.
