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.

People that are saying "Good Riddance" are idiots. People are only thinking about the wrongs he did. Remember he was a Great Artist and shaped the Music Industry forever.

I agree with most of you. This is just another OJ! He bought his way out of one of the sickest crimes known to man. How can you people feel bad for him? His poor kids will have a chance to live a normal life now. Sure he gave us some awesome music but anyone who can respect him after what he has done with his life and picture the poor kids he has scarred for life. Im sorry but our world is better off with another child molester. I hope he pays for what he has done when hes at the gate answering for himself

Michael Jackson was an amazingly talented entertainer -- dancer, songwriter. His personal life should be his own. His family loved him and is mourning their loss. If anything, we should keep our unkind remarks to ourselves and pray to give his loved ones comfort at this very difficult time. No one is perfect, myself included, and to the negative remarks , , , you should be ashamed of yourself.

My guess is death due to complications of anorexia, Michael was a remarkable artist...but a creepy guy that prayed on young boys.
