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.

lovely one    

I was shocked to hear of MJ passing. I never knew he had a drug problem.
There is not a day passed since his death that I don't think of him in some form of fashion.
By listening to his music, watching his DVD - Live in Bucharest, hearing his songs on the radio or reading about him in the media.



Even though he is not here, his music will live on in my heart and forever through the world.



From the Jacksons 5, to The Jacksons and of course Michael Jackson.



The Greatest Entertainer of All Times.
Approximate 1 billion or more people viewed his memorial. OMG !!!



I love you Michael Joseph Jackson - RIP.



So many of us grew up with Michael and The Jacksons 5.
Based on all of the information I have read from the media and heard from MJ family members, MJ had too much of a burden on his shoulder. It appears he was taking care of the family compound one way of the other.
I don't think he really had anyone in his corner at the end who genuinely cared about him with the exception of some of his family members.
MJ was very lonely at the end, confused and OMG he needed someone like me to help him with his struggles. Anxiety, insomina, someone to help him think of positive things in life.



In my opinion, Dr.Murray can bypass all of the court hearings and the trials forthcoming, and go straight to Hell!



Also,including AEG too, because the company knew about his drug additions and didn't do a damn thing about it!



MJ is not here to defend himself.
I do know if you have a drug addition, it is not right for a license doctor to administered drugs you asked for just to get the money. Afterall, you sign an oath to keep your patience Alive!!!
Hence, so many people are at fault.



However, life have its turns and sometimes you never know what direction you will take.



God bless MJ for a job well done !!!



I love you Michael...lovely one.

Hey guys,
I hope this allowed, I have never used this website before so I wasn't really sure what this was going to do. So this is just a test post. I really like this forum, it has some excellent discussions that take place.Converse Century Converse pretty much established their cool kudos right from the start when in 1913 it announced it would be different to the mainstream.
