“Michael has been very moved by Jade’s story,” a source close to the Thriller singer told the Daily Star.

“He has pledged to offer any support he can and he has promised to try and make it to the funeral.”

Jackson has already spoken to Goody’s widower, Jack Tweed, and previously invited the couple’s children to one of his upcoming concerts at the O2.

But while Jackson would be welcome, glamour model Jordan has been banned from the funeral.

Jordan has publicly asked for an invite to the June funeral, but is persona non grata with the Goody clan after attacking Jade for, “being paid for interviews on subjects people are really traumatised by.”

“If she turns up she will not be allowed in,” a family source told The Sun. “A lot of people were offended by Jordan’s remarks.”

Jade Goody’s funeral is to be held this Saturday, 4 April at the St John the Baptist church in Burkhurst Hill, Essex.
