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 think if they were serious about reviving MJ when his heart stopped they would have sat a naked 10 year old boy on his face! HAHAHA!

See what happens when you are separated from God by your desires ?

What a waste. That entire family is no different than he is. They sold their souls and that's all there is. At the end of the day, he dies a miserable death, feeling all alone while surrounded by slugs, totally destroyed and broke.

You see what happens when you allow your will to supercede God's ? So here's Michael turning his face into something it's not, turning his skin a color it wasn't....it was sick. I feel sorry for him because he blew it.

I feel more sorrow for all you people who think this person is worth hours and hours of TV coverage. He was totally insignificant on all fronts. He had nothing of value for this world.

Although I am secretly known in Hollywood as one of the premier Celebrity Plastic Surgeons, and have done surgery for several close acquaintances of Michael Jackson’s, I have not done surgery for Michael. I did, however, have the privilege and pleasure of knowing him during several visits to the home of his ex-wife. His true spiritual essence and youthful innocence shined brightly through his plasticized exterior. No amount of Plastic Surgery can improve the beauty that an individual like Michael radiates from within. Hopefully his surgery experiences will be overshadowed by his lifelong successes bringing joy and pleasure to the hearts of millions. From one artist to another, I send my thanks to Michael for blessing us all with his genius. I also send my prayers to Michael that he will have peace and solace in his next venture, whatever that may be.

Condolences to the Jackson family,

Dr. Edward O. Terino

I was just in youtube and I was disgusted by all the people that are talking bad about Michael Jackson. It makes me really mad that people dont respect the dead. Alot of racist comments have been made. I want to say that may Michael Jackson rest in peace and may happiness find its way to him. People are going to be talking bad but many people won't care and will continue to love you because you were a good man. You never bothered anybody. You were unique and special. If anybody is hating its because they are mad you are loved by millions , michael jackson. And for anybody that dares write something bad about Michael Jackson, GOD will make sure you get what is coming to you. Its not good when people are cold hearted and especially when you talking about dead people:) RIP Michael Jackson forever will b remember

Mr. Jackson, may you finally rest. Your soul needed to cleanse, your mind needed to understand things you couldn't, and you should have seen the genius you were.

Preserve his body in a mummified state. He deserves this.

i dont know if anyone will read this but i think someone or a group of investers should buy back neverland and turn it in to another grace land. the whole reason why michael made never land was because we wanted to be like peter pan and never grow old and die but when i saw on the news a few weeks back them destroying never land it probably destroyed him. if i had the money and power i would do just that!

Thinking back, as a young man growing up in rural Oklahoma, the happiest time of my life had a back drop soundtrack that was Michael Jackson's music. As my life changed and evolved, so did Michael music. Now that he has passed away, it is almost as if a chapter of my life has came to an end. I have truly enjoyed hearing all of the music again and the trip down memory lane. It is a very bittersweet time as I relive the past with that amazing soundtrack playing in the back ground. "Thank you Mr. Jackson, you are not only the King of Pop, but a true Prince". Rest in peace and God speed.
