Michael Jackson dead @ 50

I know this is a holiness website and all (sorry for being carnal at the moment) but I have to report on this. Now, I don’t know how true this is as of yet because CNN and Headline news have not reported this, however I am getting texts and phone calls (even from my mother) claiming Michael Jackson has died. Thus far, from what I can tell, he went into cardiac arrest in California. They say death comes in threes (however superstitions are unscriptural) (Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and now Michael Jackson). If it is to be found that he is NOT dead, I will remove this post, but until then, apparently he has died. Yall betta get right and pray!


[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 had 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.
