Heart attack, hmmm, I'm skeptical - he's already canceled part of the concert series due to something or other not being ready, and now he most likely won't be able to tour because of his health problems.

Convenient, 'face saving' (excuse the unintended terrible pun) way out of the whole situation.

Apparently he wasn't breathing when medics arrived and was given CPR. His father has said he is not dong well, according to Sky News.

Without getting technical...cardiac arrest doesn't mean heart attack.

I wonder what the outcome is. Sounds like he was revived, but how long he was down, we don't know.

Reports say La Toya Jackson has been seen running into the hospital crying !!

Also security tape going up around the hospital. I guess hundreds of thousands will gather and it will be a security / safety risk .

God. What a shock!

I can't say I was a fan of his as such, I love Billie Jean though and others, but I just can't seem to contemplate Michael Jackson being dead.

May he RIP and sympathies to the family  pray

Sorry, but TMZ is not a reliable source. They will jump to have the first story, knowing that if they are wrong, the type of people who read TMZ won't hold it against them for much more than a day or two. He very well could be dead, but I don't see TMZ as my news-source of choice...

LCI, the major french news channel, say he's dead according to reliable sources. They are also saying US media are waiting for an official source to confirm his death because it's so big they don't want to take any risks.

Bild-Zeitung reports that apparently, according to TMZ, Whacko Jacko has expired.

That's what I just heard.

They're showing live feeds from UCLA hospital and there are hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people gathering. Presumably to mourn

Uri Geller's now speaking to SKY News about what's going on. He can't say much because he now needs to contact the family
