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.

I just wanna say to the people leaving uncalledffor comments, you all need to shut up and get a life really! You have no idea if he did it or not and i'm sick of hearing your crap! If he did that, then you know what, that makes the parents that took money look like idiots. All they were after is money and they got that. It broke his heart when people were accusing him of molestation. He loved kids so much! How dare you talk about him like that. Show me the proof you have or shut the hell up!
RIP MICHAEL(THE KING OF POP)! WE LOVE YOU AND WILL MISS YOU SO MUCH! SMOOCHES!!!

The World has lost a true Icon, despite his crazy life and his strange ways he was gifted. I know when it's all said and done this will also be another Hollywood tragedy. Prescription pain meds and legalized drug dealers at work yet again.
