"On April 8, 2014, my attorney reached an agreement with Mr. Augustine's counsel that no one would take any action with regards to Mickey's body until we had a chance to some to some resolution," Jan stated in her April 11 declaration.

"Circumstances beyond my control have kept Mickey and I apart for the last year of his life. I have also been dealing with some serious health concerns of my own. I took comfort in knowing that one day we would be living together again or share a final resting place.

"Despite my strong desires to be buried beside my husband, I feel that I owe it to Mickey's fans to allow Mickey to be buried alongside other members of Hollywood royalty."

Michael Augustine is Rooney's former conservator.

Rooney's stepkids — who he was awarded a restraining order against in 2011 after allegations of elderly abuse -- Chris and Christina Aber, are banned from attending the funeral.

Three of the late actor's daughters were present for the hearing on Friday, but remained outside the actual courtroom.

The funeral will be very small and private, has learned.
