Just in from the LA Times

Michael Jackson is dead [Updated]

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 his family is arriving at his bedside, a law enforcement source told The Times.

Jackson was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center this afternoon by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.

Fire Capt. Steve Ruda said paramedics responded to a call at Jackson's home at 12:26 p.m. He was not breathing when they arrived. The paramedics performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation and took him to the hospital, Ruda told The Times.

Updated at 2:12 p.m.: Paramedics were called to a home in 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.

Yeah that has to be a rumour about Jeff otherwise what a fucking shit day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotta feel sorry for Michael though, his entire life since he was 5 has been right under the spot light. He has lasted a lot longer than many others with this much fame. Scion his music will flood for years to come and lets hope he continues to live through the generations because unlike Elvis, Beetles etc its impossible to put a date on Michaels music.

Though I'm not a fan this is sad. At least he had a FULL life and did wonderful things with his time here.
