Michael Jackson, King of Pop, has Left Us
Another sad news,we lost the a greatest singer Michael Jackson, who has died this evening after collapsing at his home in Los Angeles.
The singer stopped breathing and suffered a massive cardiac arrest, although the exact circumstances of his death are unknown. Reportedly , Michael Jackson had suffered a long term addiction of painkillers. One Jackson family source said at the time he was ‘just not able to pick himself up out of the painkiller stupor’ that he was in.
Last month it was alleged he was struggling to make even a handful of the rehearsals for his comeback tour in Britain. According to Larry King, Elisabeth Taylor his closest friends had planned to fly with private jet to attend Jackson opening night concerts in London which is start July 13.
Father of three young children was not breathing when the paramedics arrived at his home. When emergency staff arrived, they were forced to begin resuscitation procedures immediately.
Ten bodyguards followed the ambulance to hospital where the star was rushed into the emergency room on a stretcher. Doctors again tried to revive him, but attempts failed.
A spokesman for UCLA said that due to patient confidentiality the medical centre could not comment on or confirm the reports.
According to CBS News, paramedics worked to resuscitate Jackson for 42 minutes.
His mother, Katherine, and brothers raced from the family home nearby to be at his bedside. His sister, La Toya, was seen running into the hospital sobbing.
A source close to his family said tonight: “It’s so tragic but he was such a wreck physically that all the signs were there. He had apparently been ‘doped up to his eyes’ for several weeks with anti-pain prescriptions including Vicodin.
The source, who asked not to be named, said: “He has pain in his back and that is the reason for the drugs, but it is obvious that the painkillers have taken over his life. His family is telling him to ditch the medications and get on with the tour.”
Another family friend said that his ex-wife Debbie Rowe is expected to receive initial custody of the children while long term arrangements are sorted.
Another family source said he had become increasingly withdrawn over recent weeks, leaning on his mother Katherine for support as his health deteriorated.
Michael is really in the bad shape, Joe Jackson, Michael’s dad, who said “he is not doing well”. “He had been so frail, both physically and emotionally,” the acquaintance said. “Many warned he was pushing too hard and overdoing things, but he wanted to get back to work so badly, he kept pushing himself harder and harder. He didn’t want to let down his fans, and he desperately needed the cash.”
The star had three children, the elder two, Prince Michael I, 12, and Paris Michael, 11, with ex-wife Debbie Rowe. It has never been revealed who the mother is of the star’s youngest child, seven-year-old Prince Michael II.
There had been persistent rumours about his failing health, most recently that he was suffering from skin cancer.
It is really terrible shock for me and others, we usually underestimate him after all the trouble and an unique way he had chosen for having children, for changing himself through plastic surgery and his way to express ‘love’ to children, and now we are so sad and shock to hear the dead of Michael Jackson.
Above all he is a very talented person in his field, all his famous works in his album Bad, Thriller, and Billy Jean will be his all times hits and his masterpiece.
Many celebrity had comment on his tragiclly and suddenth death,
Music producer Quincy Jones said: “I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. Had it all – talent, grace, professionalism and dedication, I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”
Demi Moore paid tribute on Twitter, writing:’I am greatly saddened for the loss of both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Especially for their children!”
Her husband, Ashton Kutcher, also posted: “RIP. Sending love and light to family and friend but especially his kids.Plea to the press to respect his wishes of maintaining the anonymity of his children. I plea to the public to refuse to consume media that does not respect the anonymity of Michaels children.”
Foreign Secretary David Miliband wrote on Twitter: “Never has one soared so high and yet dived so low. RIP Michael.”
Peter Andre wrote: “Michael Jackson dying is absolutely devastating. I am totally shocked. MJ, you’re the best.”
Max Clifford a publicist who first met the star in the 60s when Mr Clifford was working at record label EMI’s press office, said: “It is a terrible shock, you wonder if the strain of getting fit for this major tour proved too much. In recent pictures he looked anything but healthy. That’s the first thought that went through my mind. When he called to speak to Jade he was anxious to visit her, unfortunately she was too ill but they spoke on the phone and his final words to her were that he wanted to see her and wanted her to come to his show. Sadly she is no longer with us and now he is also no longer with us, it is very sad. He was always someone who seemed to find it difficult to cope with fame. He was a great talent. I was already a superstar when he was in his teens but then he was with four others. Then all of a sudden he was on his own and he did seem to find it difficult to cope.”
Good bye Michael Jackson, your songs are still reverberating in my heart. And my the family who left behind blessed with the strength from God.
