Emergency![Updated at 3:15 p.m.: Pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead by doctors this afternoon after arriving at a hospital in a deep coma, city and law enforcement sources told The Times.]

[Updated at 2:46 p.m.:? Jackson is in a coma and family have?are arriving at his bedside, a law enforcement source told The Times.

Jackson was rushed to a hospital this afternoon by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.

Capt. Steve Ruda said paramedics responded to a call at Jackson's home around 12:26 p.m. He was not breathing when they arrived. The parademics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told The Times.

[Updated at 2:12 p.m.: Paramedics were called to a home on the 100 block of Carolwood Drive off Sunset Boulevard. Jackson rented the Bel Air home for $100,000 a month. It was described as a French chateau estate built in 2002 with seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces and a theater.

The home is about 2 1/2 miles, about a six-minute drive, from UCLA Medical Center. An earlier version of this post incorrectly described the time to travel between the home and hospital as two minutes.]

The news comes as Jackson, 50,?was attempting a comeback after years of tabloid headlines, most notably his trial and acquittal on child molestation charges.

In May, The Times reported that Jackson had rented the Bel Air residence and was rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London’s O2 Arena. Jackson had won the backing of two billionaires to get the so-called “King of Pop” back on stage.

His backers envision the shows at AEG’s O2 as an audition for a career rebirth that could ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, and even a “Thriller” casino. Such a rebound could wipe out Jackson’s massive debt.

    A genius born to planet earth. Thank you Michael for sharing your beautiful spirit with us. You were childlike and loving and giving and very misunderstood. I hope you are much happier on the next phase of your journey. You made this world a better place, you graced it with your presence and many gifts. Loving you forever.
    Now you are free to live the peaceful, magical, joyful life you’ve always wanted.

  • Claire Lee, Solihull said:

    Michael,
    You spent your life in the spotlight, dividing yourself up into enough pieces to love everyone on earth. You were idolised, appreciated and loved. You were a genius and your music will live on forever. My parents loved it, I love it and my one year old daughter loves it.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    You will finally get the peace and love you always craved for in life. Shine down on us now as a beautiful star in the heavens watching over us.

    All my love and gratitude

    Claire

    It’s sad that he’s dead,but what’s sadder is that we forget about what he did. If anyboby else was accused of molesting a child, they would be branded for life, reguardless of whether they did or not. People would not be coming to their rescue. So agknoledge the bad along with the good. He’s not agod.

  • Beverly Carter said:

    Dear Micheal,
    You gave so much if yourself no one could ever imagine
    The hurt and pain you felt inside, Despite being deemed a legend
    You took the world by a storm at such a young age,
    The world recognized your talent with such a rage
    Fiery on stage, your attitude and presence was outstanding
    But deep down inside no one felt the pain that was everlasting
    With vocal ability natrual, dance steps impecable
    To others you were rich,
    Well rewarded for your talent
    But behind closed doors you hid the pain that was well apparent
    Ddeprived of life from the time you were a child
    All you wanted to do was live a normal life
    Take in a game once in a while
    Despiote being royaly yourself
    You entertained Kings and their Kingdoms
    But you left us suddenly, quietly and without reason
    In life we’ll miss you
    Although your death we’ll always mourn
    But have no doubt Dear Michael
    The love you gave us will forever live on

    I love you Micheal the same today as I have for the last 40 years my prayers are with your family. May God bless you and keep you safe in his arms, he hasn’t felt us he just took one of his angels home….

    My heart is broken, as you sing in one of your song “gone to soon” You were noting but a good person, who always care for ones that needed, a shame what has done to you while you were on this earth, a shame they never left you live a life in peace. Now you find your peace. I will miss you, and you will never be forgotten.

    I am so heartbroken for the Jackson family, Michaels brothers, sisters, parents, children and all of those who truly loved him-and to his true friends. I recently lost my son who was 36 to drugs and there are now words to describe the emotional pain. I pray that God will be able to help them get through this. Know that michael is in a safe place and that he is at peace.

  • Tinuviel Parker said:

    Michael, my love for you is like a circle it?s never ending, yet I still feel I need to apologise for all the things I have send in the past before I really knew what you were about because if you had heard this things I?m sure they would have hurt you so for that I am sincerely sorry. I have tried to make a formal apology to you in various ways and I hope at least one of these ways has reached you. My feelings have changed drastically towards you and I think, like many others, you are not only the King of Pop you are a God amongst all singer and dancers. Your music is like no other and it?s brilliant in many ways. You are loved so much by so many including your children because you really are a great man and a great father, I can see that now. When I say this I speak for all your fans worldwide: Thank-you for all you have done for us and the world. Love you forever Tinuviel Parker xxx

  • Sandra said:

    Thank you for all your wonderful music.

    I so hoped that the O2 concerts would be a comeback for you. That your music would, once again, be that what really mattered, instead of all that crap the tabloids wrote about you and poisoned so many people’s judgement about you.

    I also hope that you are to be burried at your precious Neverland ranch and that they restore that magical place in it’s former glory. The place you called your home for so many years. Maybe Neverland can be your Graceland, and enable people to still come visit you.

    You once said that you were Peter Pan at heart. So what better place to be layed at rest than Neverland?

    I hope you found peace now. Love you always.

    Sandra
