    "We've just learned Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Los Angeles ... and we're told it was cardiac arrest and that paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance.

    He was picked up at his home around 20 minutes ago -- we're told his mother is on the way to visit him.

    UPDATE: The 911 call came in at 12:21PM at his Holmby Hills home in L.A. "

    Michael Jackson Rushed To Hospital

    Singer reportedly suffered cardiac arrest on Thursday.


    Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Los Angeles on Thursday (June 25) after suffering cardiac arrest, according to TMZ. The site reported that paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance after picking up the singer at his home in the Holmby Hills neighborhood.
    The Los Angeles Times reported that Jackson was not breathing when paramedics arrived. Captain Steve Ruda told the paper that Jackson was not breathing when paramedics responded to a call at Jackson's home around 12:26 p.m. PT.
    A Jackson family member reportedly told TMZ that the singer is in "really bad shape" and his brothers are headed to UCLA. Jackson's father, Joe, reportedly told the site that his son is "not doing too well."
    MTV News was unable to reach representatives for Jackson at press time.
    If the reports are accurate, this development will almost certainly have an impact on the singer's 50 scheduled concerts in London, which are scheduled to begin on July 13. The concerts all sold out within hours of the tickets going on sale.
    The residency, called This Is It, is scheduled to continue through February. Jackson has said these are the last shows he'll play in London.
    However, the singer has been dogged by a $40 million lawsuit filed earlier this month by promoter AllGood Entertainment Inc., claiming breach of contract and fraud in an attempt to stop Jackson from performing in London. The New Jersey-based company filed the suit in federal court in New York stating that it signed a deal with Jackson's manager, Frank DiLeo, in November 2008 that commits the singer to appear at a Jackson family reunion concert in the U.S. this summer.
    AllGood CEO Patrick Allocco told MTV News that the contract was for a concert that was originally scheduled to take place this July. "The date we now have on hold is July 3 in Cowboy Stadium in 2010," Allocco said, adding that the contract stipulates that Jackson cannot perform individually before the AllGood show or for three months after the July event.
    Jackson, who had been rehearsing for the London shows in Los Angeles, has claimed he never personally signed the papers for the family-reunion show, and AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips has called the AllGood claims "meritless." But Allocco said, "Frank DiLeo is clearly the manager of [Michael] Jackson now, and he signed the deal on his behalf."

    Same here. LA Times just confirmed he's dead. But CNN is saying that he's in a coma.

    I know I'm going to catch crap for saying this, but you can look at his death two ways:

    1)A talent gone

    or

    2)A pedophile dying.

    That's just how I see this.

    He went into cardiac arrest sometime before noon and didnt get picked up till something like 2:30.......he was never in a coma. Cardiac arrest isnt a heart attack. It is heart stoppage. He was dead at his house.

    Too bad, he was weird but a great talent.

    He was my age. I basically grew up with him... from the Jackson 5, forward. I'm sad... even a little choked up over this. :(

    What an amazing child talent... Not my favorite song (by any means) but one I can't seem to get out of my head right now.

    I don't know when the paramedics arrived but if it was, indeed, 2 hours later they would not have been able to even do a "mechanical recussitation" (drugs and a respirator) I guess we will have to wait for more details.

    figures that when he went out it'd be a big drama stunt in one form or another

    all the people who are crowded outside the hospital and the like, THEY are creepy
