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.

MICHAEL JACKSON IS ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE. WHERE IS YOUR FAITH. LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE! ! ! THINK LIKE A DETECTIVE, OPEN YOUR MIND. MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE WHAT MICHAEL WENT THROUGH JUST TO GET READY FOR A CONCERT. THE PRACTICING WITH HIS DANCERS, MAKING SURE LIGHTING CORRECT, MAKING SURE BAND ON q ,MAKING SURE PROPS AND SPECIAL EFFECTS WORKING, NEVER GETTING ANY SLEEP ! ! JUST TO NAME A FEW THINGS HIS ADULTHOOD WAS TAKEN AWAY JUST LIKE HIS CHILDHOOD WAS. HE NEEDED A BREAK, HE NEEDED A BREAK ! HE IS ALIVE ! LET HIM REST AND HEAL. HE VERY WELL MAY COME BACK ! DON'T THINK FOR A moment this could not be pulled off. just let him rest and heal. and pray for him. he may come back. GOD IS IN CHARGE OF THESE LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS, NOT TMZ or the tabloids or the tv. where is your faith? where is your faith? pray for michael as i'am doing keep an open mind. and watch the blessings and the miracles happen. GOD bless.

Farrah Fawcett: one death I will mourn.
Michael Jackson: not a chance.

Michael Jackson did nothing but molest kids, and got away with his doings - TWICE OVER! I'm glad kids can roam the world free from this jerk, and I will not miss him one bit. HASTA LA VISTA, MJ!!! YOU WON'T BE MISSED!

Oh, and it's not too late for me to celebrate. I am so happy I could set off fireworks to this song:

MJ's death is the saddest death in music since the death of John Lennon, IMO. MJ was a legend in his own, just like John Lennon was. Sure, R&B singer Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001, and while her death was sad she was not a true legend. I know Aaliyah didn't have to witness the horror of the September 11, 2001 attacks, but MJ's death overshadows that of Aaliyah's, IMO. On June 25, 2009, The "King of Pop" has done the ulitmate moonwalk to heaven and is reunited with Elvis Presley (the other "King"), Buddy Holly, John Lennon, and many other singing legends. You will be missed for sure. LONG LIVE THE KING!
