    Michael Jackson had cardiac arrest!

    Breaking news on CNN and others....

    The Los Angeles Fire Department Thursday confirmed that Michael Jackson was rushed to UCLA Medical Center, reports KCBS in Los Angeles.

    Jackson was not breathing when paramedics arrived.

    TMZ.com is reporting that the singer suffered cardiac arrest. The 911 call came in at 12:12 p.m. PST at his Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles.

    TMZ.com also spoke with Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson's father, who said that the singer is, " not doing well."

    Jackson had planned to hit the stage at the O2 Arena in London for 50 concerts this summer. Tickets for the series, which kicks off on July 8, sold out in a matter of hours on March 13. By the time the shows end in February 2010, more than 1 million people will have seen Jackson perform.

    TMZ said it's official, he's dead. Twitter is overloaded with RIP Michael Jackson.

    CNN says he's in a coma.

    [Updated at 3:15 p.m.: Pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead by doctors this afternoon after arriving at a hospital in a deep coma, city and law enforcement sources told The Times.
    [Updated at 2:46 p.m.: Jackson is in a coma and family have are arriving at his bedside, a law enforcement source told The Times.
    Jackson was rushed to a hospital this afternoon by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.
    Capt. Steve Ruda said paramedics responded to a call at Jackson's home around 12:26 p.m. He was not breathing when they arrived. The parademics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told The Times.
    [Updated at 2:12 p.m.: Paramedics were called to a home on the 100 block of Carolwood Drive off Sunset Boulevard. Jackson rented the Bel Air home for $100,000 a month. It was described as a French chateau estate built in 2002 with seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces and a theater.
    The home is about 2 1/2 miles, about a six-minute drive, from UCLA Medical Center. An earlier version of this post incorrectly described the time to travel between the home and hospital as two minutes.]
    The news comes as Jackson, 50, was attempting a comeback after years of tabloid headlines, most notably his trial and acquittal on child molestation charges.
    In May, The Times reported that Jackson had rented the Bel Air residence and was rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London's O2 Arena. Jackson had won the backing of two billionaires to get the so-called "King of Pop" back on stage.
    His backers envision the shows at AEG's O2 as an audition for a career rebirth that could ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, and even a "Thriller" casino. Such a rebound could wipe out Jackson's massive debt.

    just knowing or hearing at first about the cardiac arrest I knew his chances were slim and was waiting on a word...and so we have it.


    I heard net reports of people already wanting to coordinate everyone to play the same Michael Jackson song tonight at 10pm Est in his honor.
