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 still miss Michael so much :'(
I cannot really listen to his music anymore because I get so sad & I cry.
I've loved him for over 20 years (ever since I was a kid) and never stopped loving, EVER! supported him since day 1. Nobody ever understood him but to me, he was just such a talented, sweet, kind,giving, LOVING, GENTLE person who people badgered & still do til this day. I LOOOVVVEE this man SO MUCH & it still hurts me til this day that he's gone but he is finally getting the rest he needed.

I was banned from Michael Jackson.com --- NOT because I was a nuisance or didn't follow rules ---- I was banned because they didn't like my opinions as to what I think killed the King of Pop and my take on Dr. C. Murray.
If interested, go to http;//michaeljacksoncontroversy.blogspot.com --- I invite your comments.
As far as I know, we live in a democratic society, where opinions are free and not against the rules. COULD SOMEONE PLS TELL ME HOW OR WHY THESE JERKS GET AWAY WITH THIS???????????

Saw this on cnn. About Murray and his California medical license and how he owes 6 different women child support.
