TMZ: Michael Jackson Dead at 50

TMZ is reporting that Michael Jackson has died at age 50. According to the site, the pop legend suffered a cardiac arrest this afternoon and medics were unable to revive him. A source says Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

Singer Michael Jackson dead at 50
Legendary pop star had been preparing for London comeback tour

BREAKING NEWS
msnbc.com staff and news service reports
updated 1 minute ago


Michael Jackson has died at age 50 after being rushed to UCLA Medical Center, NBC News has confirmed.

Los Angeles Fire Department Capt. Steve Ruda told the L.A. Times that Jackson was not breathing when paramedics arrived at his home and CPR was performed.

TMZ.com reported that he may have suffered cardiac arrest.

Jackson had been due to start a series of comeback concerts in London on July 13 running until March 2010. The singer, whose hits included “Thriller” and “Billie Jean,” had been rehearsing in the Los Angeles area for the past two months.

The shows for the 50 London concerts sold out within minutes of going on sale in March.

His lifetime record sales tally is believed to be around 750 million, which, added to the 13 Grammy Awards he received, makes him one of the most successful entertainers of all time.

He lived as a virtual recluse since his acquittal in 2005 on charges of child molestation.

There were concerns about Jackson’s health in recent years but the promoters of the London shows, AEG Live, said in March that Jackson had passed a 4-1/2 hour physical examination with independent doctors.

"I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news," said Quincy Jones, a longtime friend of Jackson's and producer of his “Thriller” album. “For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words. ... I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him."

A life in music

Jackson was born on Aug. 29, 1958, in Gary, Ind., the seventh of nine children. Five Jackson boys — Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael — first performed together at a talent show when Michael was 6.

They walked off with first prize and went on to become a best-selling band, The Jackson Five, and then The Jackson 5.

Jackson made his first solo album in 1972, and released “Thriller” in 1982, which became a smash hit that yielded seven top-10 singles. The album sold 21 million copies in the United States and at least 27 million worldwide.

The next year, he unveiled his signature “moonwalk” dance move while performing “Billie Jean” during an NBC special.

In 1994, Jackson married Elvis Presley’s only child, Lisa Marie, but the marriage ended in divorce in 1996. Jackson married Debbie Rowe the same year and had two children before splitting in 1999. The couple never lived together.

Jackson has three children named Prince Michael I, Paris Michael and Prince Michael II, who was known for his brief public appearance when his father held him over the railing of a hotel balcony, causing widespread criticism.

TRUE, but if someone is responsible for the death, they should be held responsible.

That idiot drug pusher doctor is the same one who did not even know how to do chest compressions... when done, it should be done on a firm surface, like the floor, and not on a bed! The 911 operator knew to tell the caller to put Jackson on the floor, but the caller said the "expert" doctor was doing it on the bed... Even a student who takes the lowest class in first aid is trained in that, yet the doctor, with all his training did not do it right... probably because he knew he had already killed Jackson through improper medicine.

Even if you perform CPR it almost never works. Once your heart stops you almost always die. Those defibrillators like they use on shows like ER don't work all that often. Sure, they save some people, but it's not like on TV where 99% of the time the person comes back.

Report: DA set to go after Jackson doctor
Conrad Murray likely to be indicted on manslaughter charge
Linda Deutsch / Associated Press

Los Angeles -- Nearly seven months after Michael Jackson's death stunned the world, the official investigation of his death is edging toward conclusion with prosecutors prepared to seek an indictment of Jackson's doctor on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, the Associated Press has learned.

The fate of Dr. Conrad Murray has been the subject of speculation since he found Jackson unconscious in his home in Los Angeles last June. Jackson was preparing for a strenuous concert comeback in London, and Murray, a cardiologist, had been hired as his personal physician for the tour.

A law enforcement source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation remains open, said Friday that Murray would be prosecuted on a theory of gross negligence alleging that his treatment of Jackson was an extreme departure from the standard of care normally followed by physicians.

Court documents filed last summer concerning a search warrant said police were seeking evidence of manslaughter.

The coroner has ruled Jackson's death at age 50 was a homicide caused by acute intoxication by the powerful anesthetic propofol, with other sedatives a contributing factor.

The singer died after Murray administered propofol and two other sedatives to get him to sleep, court documents state.

When Murray realized Jackson was unresponsive, he began frantic efforts to revive him, but Jackson never regained consciousness.

Criminal attorney J. Michael Flanagan said Friday he had been hired to join Houston attorney Edward Chernoff in representing Murray.

To prove gross negligence, Flanagan said, prosecutors would have to show a conscious indifference for life.

"This trial could end up being a trial of medical practice," he said. "The question is what discretion does a doctor have to treat a patient, and if a doctor makes a mistake, is it a crime?"
