RIP Michael Jackson

It is a tragic day for the world of music as King of Pop Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest at 3 am (IST) in Los Angeles.

Paramedics were called to the singer’s home around midday local time after he suffered a suspected cardiac arrest.

He was rushed by an ambulance to a medical centre, while several US media outlets started saying that the 50-year-old star has died.

Michael Jackson was supposed to begin a series of comeback concerts in the UK starting from July 13.

He has had a history of health problems because of which he could not do any concert in 12 years.

US media reports say paramedics were called to the singer’s house in Bel Air at midday. They performed CPR on Jackson and rushed him to the UCLA medical centre.

Crowds had begun to gather outside the hospital, and the emergency centre was roped off by the police.

Jackson began his career as a child in his family group The Jackson 5. He then went on to achieve global fame as a solo artist with smash hits such as Thriller and Bad.

But the singer had been dogged by controversy and money trouble in recent years, becoming a virtual recluse.
