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.

I'm sorry but this is no loss. The "man" was a child molester who was able to buy his way out of trouble. He was a complete freak who mutilated his own face. His children are much better off without him if he is indeed dead.

Are you two nuts?? so sad?? please-no more little boys for him to molest--and I don't care what the stupid jury said--that man was as guilty as sin. Poor kids you say?? are you serious?? they may have a chance at a halfway normal life now. nobody should be dangling them over a balcony or covering their faces with veils when they go out.

TMZ shouldn't be so quick to jump the gun when it has NOT been confirmed on the news (fox news) that he has yet to pass away or die. The ucla medical center has not yet confirmed Michael Jackson passing away. This isn't right.

I know that everyone will NOT miss him (Michael Jackson). Wow, imagine in the old days when he was on the top of the world, but now ... he had become nothing to us. I'm sorry what I'm about to say ... good riddance!
