Michael Jackson Dies

6/25/2009 6:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonWe've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest.

Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive.

A source inside the hospital told us there was "absolute chaos" after Jackson arrived. One person who was there said "The staff responded in a way that looked straight out of 'Grey's Anatomy." People who were with the singer were screaming, "You've got to save him! You've got to save him!"

We're told one of the staff members at Jackson's home called 911.

La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead.

Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

What the hell is TMZ talking about..?! Not more then 5 mins ago on the news, it has been reported that Michael Jackson is NOT dead..! Yes he was found in his home, but he was not breathing when the paramedics got there, but they did get him breathing, he is now in surgery... TMZ needs to get their facts straight before just putting a story out there so fast about an icon, or any other celebrity..!

SAY WHAT?? ALL NAMED MICHAEL?? THOSE KIDS DON'T KNOW HOW LUCKY THEY ARE. MAYBE NOW THEY'LL HAVE A CHANCE AT A 'NORMAL' LIFE. I AM SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT MR. JACKSON...HE BROUGHT MUCH GREAT ENTERTAINMENT IN HIS EARLY LIFE, BUT WE ALL KNOW...HE REALLY WENT OFF THE DEEP END AND IF HE WAS TRULY A PEDOPHILE...THAT'S DISGUSTING. SAD DAY FOR MANY, THOUGH...BOTH HE AND FARRAH FAWCETT ON THE SAME DAY. CRAZY.

Unfortunately it is true and is all over the news, not just TMZ. Very, very sad and I feel terrible for his kids, as they are not better off like the other fools say.

It's sad that Farrah has passed,but as for Jackson,good riddance to bad trash. He won't be humping any more little white boys,and the kids he bought have a chance at a normal life now.

People who want to post such low class and nasty comments, should just shut up. This man had children who are grieving the loss of their father. You should be ashamed of yourselves. My prayers are with the Jackson family. RIP Michael.

Regardless what he was, or what he stood for, 50 is too young to die. At 50 he could still change his life around

well if this is true this will be the biggest funeral since elvis presley and he just went into the hospital less the 1hr ago i agree tmz should jump the gun to make this accusation and for those of you already cutting him down forget the court crap they were always after his money.

remember the music he wrote usa for africa after all the musicians were already ready to perform the song but lional ritchie and others told michael hey everyone ready but there is no song so michael left the room and wrote usa for africa now thats talent.

i wish the jackson family the best under this time and i hope michael will survive good thoughts please
