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.

When I first heard this, this webpage was the only only one to confirm his death, among news station lies, TMZ did not play duck, duck, goose, the news did. Michael was dead before that ambulance even picked him up. What is funny is all the comments on here, blasting TMZ for "Lies", when it turns out, the ignorant people were the ones commenting. I have so much more respect for TMZ as a news source now..about time America woke up to them.

OMG, it's still not sinking in. I can't believe i will never get to see Michael Jackson. He has been my idol ever since i was 6 years old. I'm now 32 and I was really looking forward to seeing him in concert on my birthday 30th July. i can't talk or think about him without feeling completely gutted about his death. I can't even begin to imagine what his family must be going through right now! Officially 2009 has been the worst year for me. I lost my brother at the beginning of the year, and now this! May both souls rest in peace. you will both be missed very dearly. Thank you for the music MJ and despite the difficulties you've had, i think your parents did an amazing job, for having produced someone so amazing and talented. RIP xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
