Oh my God.
Michael Jackson is dead. The gloved one died this afternoon after suffering cardiac arrest.
Paramedics were called the legend's home this afternoon and found him not breathing. They were unable to revive him.
Michael was about to head out on a comeback tour, beginning in London on July 13 and running until March 2010. He had been rehearsing in Los Angeles for the past two months. All 50 of the London concerts sold out within minutes.
Between the estimated $750 million he had earned throughout his career, and his 13 Grammy Awards, Michael was inarguably one of the most successful entertainers of all time.
He is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.
