Michael Jackson has passed away after suffering cardiac arrest at the age of 50.
Michael went into cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon, and paramedics were unable to revive him when they got to his Los Angeles home. TMZ.com reports that he had no pulse when emergency crews arrived, and they were never able to get one back because he was already dead.
We’re hearing that officials are holding off on announcing his death in order to get more security teams to the L.A. hospital he was taken to. They fear that once a statement is released that there will be rioting.
The pop icon is survived by his parents, his siblings and his three children.
