Prominent music figure, Michael Jackson, has passed away on Thursday, June 25. He was 50 and is survived by three children; Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

Representatives for the King of Pop haven't given immediate comment just yet on the news nor have they given specific details on the cause of his death. In the meantime, words have been circulating that he died of cardiac arrest.

According to TMZ, Michael suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday afternoon at his Holmby Hills home. One of his staff members reportedly called 911, but when paramedics arrived the singer was already dead. "When paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back," the site wrote.

Michael was quickly rushed to U.C.L.A. Medical Center, a six-minute drive from the rented mansion in which he was living. Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive. Michael's sister, La Toya Jackson, reportedly was seen in the hospital and sobbing after he was pronounced dead.

God saw u getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around u and whispered come with me. With tearful eyes we watched and we saw u pass away. Although we love u dearly, we could not make u stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best

he is going to be buried in California, don't remember exactly where, but it's going to be at his birthday. I'm so sorry he ended up this way, but it clearly wasn't his fault. It's so cruel of the media to say and write anything they want, it's emarassing to read. He also got a very mean and rude father, who actually refused going to the memoryseremony wthout getting payed! Just wait, Joseph Jackson, some day you'll regret... :( Miss u, MJ, you're now living your dream, which was to get some peace.:'( We'll forever remember you, King of Pop <3

Nash, even if he's converting to other religions he will still be under his God's hands. Dont be so narrow minded. We believe in our own religions. Michael, rest in peace, I grew up listening to your songs and it will never change. May God bless your children.

Michael if you did revert to Islam, you are so fortunate as almighty God forgives all your sins when you declare La Ilaha IllAllah, Muhammad ar Rasoolallah: there is only one God and Muahmmad(may the peace and blessing of God be upon Him), is His final messenger. May almighty Allah save you from the torment of the grave, cleanse you and grant you the highest of Heavens!
