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.

Funny Though.    

Hey Alicia? Guess what? We have a right to be here too. I don't know if you realize this or not, but this is NOT a site stating: "Those who love MJ come here to talk about how great he was". This is a PUBLIC forum, where ANY opinion is welcomed. How about YOU go to his OFFICIAL fan site and post? We aren't going there.

i believe it was diane diamond who stated on msnbc today that michael jackson is not the biological father of his children
and she knows who is
this is the first time i have heard any allegation along these lines
i thought the were the products of artificial insemination even though Jackson seemed more feminine than masculine as time progressed
i would love to see tmz investigate this claim
it is possible the biological father ( if her statement is true) to come forward to claim the children and any inheritance they may receive
the media is only speculating the mother could lay claim
if this statement is true the real father could come out to claim the children even if he signed any legal agreement that he had no further claim on them it would be an interesting addition to the already bizarre events of Jackson's life
after all the mother of the first 2 children has stated they were his children and not hers but the courts could still award her custody if she petitioned for custody

It's terrible that it took Michael's death for people to start recognizing him as a legend rather than the next news topic. May he rest in peace. I left a lasting condolence for his family at http://www.tributes.com/Michael-Jackson
