Michael Jackson

The reports are coming in. Earlier Thursday (June 25), news of Farrah Fawcett's death shocked every, and now, Michael Jackson goes late this afternoon in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the King of Pop was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital shortly after 12:00 p.m. after suffering from cardiac arrest at his Holmby Hills home. Paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance ... and at the time things looked grim.

Members of his family rushed to UCLA, shortly after the news.

Upon arrival to the hospital, Jackson had no pulse, and despite trying to revive him, it came to no avail.

The King of Pop was just 50 years old. He will be missed by many. He was a true legend.

Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

As a solo artist, he had 13 no. 1 hits and still holds the record for the best-selling album of all-time with 1982's Thriller. As of 2007, the Guinness Book of World Records lists the album as having sold 65 million copies worldwide.
