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.

For those nay-sayers that think he is still alive check out www.etonline.com Its posted all over their website that he is officially DEAD! No major loss! I for one am glad he is gone! Just wish it wasn't on same day as Farrah Fawcett passing away. Now she is someone that I will miss. Farrah, may you rest in PEACE child. You put up a courageous fight til the bitter end!
As for MJ.... I hope you ROT IN HELL!!!

For all of you that have negative things to say about Michael and want to put Farrah on a pestal maybe you would like to go back and review her life some. but we don't have the right to judge either of them they will be judged now as all of us will.. He of you that are without sin please cast the first stone. I doubt if any of us can. Why is it no matter what the conversation is some ass hole has to bring up race, Race is not a issue when it comes to death. But some people use this venue just to spit their venom. You rascist people need to stop hidding and just say what you mean as I say their is a time and place for everything and this is not it for youre hate

It is sad when someone dies so young. I can understand and share the grief that most of you feel, I have been there. While we have the freedoms of speech, it does not grant us the right to be God; after all, judgment is reserved for Him. I am not the greatest fan of MJ, but the savage attitude and comments made by some of you are so juvenile. If he was guilty of God will deal with him now. If the boys were violated, God will heal their hearts and bodies. If we make cruel comments, we hurt the living family and children of the decease. Every monster has people who love them. Therefore to hurt the bereaved family is cruel and evil; how then are you different than what you accuse and judge him of? Think about it! PS. Why don’t you judge the judicial system that allegedly failed the children and the parents who allegedly sold the innocence of their children for millions of dollars?

Whatever silly weenie games Michael might have liked playing with other silly weenie boys like McCauley, I would bet he never hurt or frightened anyone, and most likely made them laugh. It was never easy to be Michael, and he was never free of being Michael; all in all, a rather tragic life, like Marilyn. He was a good song and dance man, and he put out like a pro.

Even though it's been more than a year since he died, I am not surprised he left us. He appeared to be suffering and looked frail when he turned 50 in 2008 - being in a wheelchair and all. Sure, he had great music, but his behavior becoming bizarre in the 1990s, and getting away with child molestation - TWICE OVER - at least kids can roam the world safely and free from this moron, and his kids can now grow up to have normal lives. I'm sorry I have to do this, but I am so happy I could turn on Kool & The Gang's "Celebration" and set off fireworks. GOODBYE AND GOOD RIDDANCE!!! HE WILL NOT BE MISSED!!!!!
