Michael Jackson

Dies

6/25/2009 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

mj-dies-1We'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. 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.

RIP Michael. I truly believe he always did what he thought was right even if it was actually wrong. He was a messed up individual but a lot of it wasn't his fault. His music will live forever.

Congrats, Harvey. You outscooped the world on the biggest death since Princess Diana.

so shocked to wake up to the news MJ had died. Personal life aside, He was a music legend, probably one of the biggest stars the world has ever seen. his music is the type that will still sound good even in 50yrs time which is rare these days. prayers for his family and kids.

Considering the enormous response to Michael Jackson as a tribute to his life, I am sure people would love to see a memorial to Michael along with the impersonators. This is similar to what is done for Elvis. I lived in Indiana when the Jackson Five rose to fame. I followed Michael throughout his life and will miss him. I love his music. It will live forever.
