Janet Jackson reportedly was in Atlanta to shoot a film when she received news of Michael Jackson's death on Thursday, June 25. She immediately flew to Los Angeles, California to be with the entire family. The Jacksons and Michael's children currently are said to be gathering at his rented house, where he experienced cardiac arrest shorty before his death.

On early Friday morning, June 26, Janet was photographed arriving at the Van Nuys airport in Los Angeles. She was caught on camera wearing no make-up and holding her Blackberry as she attempted to close the door of her car.

"Janet Jackson is grief-stricken and devastated at the sudden loss of her brother," her manager Kenneth Crear told the press. "She is in pre-production on a film and is flying immediately to California to be with her family."

Brian Oxman, an attorney for the Jacksons, has publicly shared that the family is "stunned." Brian said, "They are barely even able to speak about it."

Autopsy performed on Michael's body, in the meantime, is underway. Results aren't likely to be final until toxicology tests are completed, which could take weeks.

I am so very sadden by the loss of one of the greatest entertainers of our time. Like so many others he will never be forgotten. My prayers goes out to his brothers, Janet, and his mother. The other family members were in it just for the money. Sad but I hope his mother doesn't get control of the children because she turned a blind ear to the pain her own children were receiving from their father. I believe the doctor by his side should be made a sample of his abusive action. Well known fact Michael had this problem with the legal drugs. And yes I heard that his family was ready to step in and seek help for him. They should not have given up. I don't care if they had to go from one court to another and continue till finally a judge would hear their plea. Joe Jackson should back off and stay away. He has no rights to be anywhere around Michael. This is his damage and will be his legacy that everyone will remembered him by. And if anyone signs up with his so called new record label they are fools. I would not endorse or contribute to anything this man does. I'm sorry for Michael's mother but she turned her back on those kids cause she was weak and afraid to be on her own. So all the children had to endure everything Joe dished out. No excuse, your children are being hurt you do everything in your power to protect them. And don't tell me help wasn't available back in that era.

I HAVE LOVED MICHAEL every since I was 10yrs. And I Occasionally AM clairvoyant THAT DOCTER INJECTED TOO MUCH OF SOMETHING INTO MICHAEL,IF YOU ARE A TRUE FAN U WOULD KNOW MICHAEL WOULD NOT INTENTIALLY OVERDOSE OFF ANYTHING MICHAEL WAS NOT PHYSICALLY IN SHAPE BUT HE DID LOOK FORWARD TO PERFORMING IN LONDON_THERE are so many clues to prove that his doc. Is responsible for his death.THE SHORT STATEMENT THAT I OVERHEARD WHILE BETWEEN (sleepIng and waking) Was:"YOU DECEIVED ME" This is what I HEARD MICHAEL say.__if you ARE true FAN, PLEASE GET the word out THAT HIS DOCTER SHOULD BE EXSTENSIVELY INVESTIGATED!!!

my heart and prayers goes out to the jackson family, this was totally out the blue, I dont't recall call ttem being close, but that's not to sy that they were not, at this point what ever the differences maybe please put them aside and tell the person you are standing next to that you love them and not let a life such as this one be the reason tell them while they can still respond, this has truly been a loss not just to me, but to the whole world..... r.i.p. michael j. jackson
