The King of Pop is dead. Michael Jackson died Thursday following a heart attack. He was 50.

The celebrity website TMZ.com broke both the news of Jackson being rushed to the hospital and the singer’s death. The LA Times confirmed the news, saying Jackson was in a deep coma when he arrived at the hospital.

TMZ says Jackson went into cardiac arrest this afternoon at his California home. When paramedics arrived he had no pulse and was unconscious. TMZ says he never regained consciousness.

Jackson’s “Thriller” album was the biggest sellingĀ record of all-time. However, the singer will always be known more for his bizarre behavior, penchant for plastic surgery, and allegations of child sexual abuse. Jackson settled a child molestation civil suitĀ  in 2004. In 2005, he was criminally charged with child molestation. He was acquitted.

Ironically, Jackson was about to embark on a world comeback concert tour. He was scheduled to perform a series of sold out shows at O2 Arena in England.
