Michael Jackson, best known as the King of Pop, has died. He was 50.
He went into cardiac arrest at his Holmby Hills home in L.A. Thursday (a 911 call was placed shortly before 12:30 p.m. PT), according to TMZ, which first reported the news. Paramedics were unable to revive the singer (who had no pulse upon their arrival), the site reports.
He was then rushed to UCLA Medical Center while in a deep coma before passing away, The Los Angeles Times reported.
He was pronounced dead at 2:26 p.m. An autopsy is set for Friday.
Michael's father, Joe Jackson, confirmed to E! News his son had a heart attack.
Born Aug. 29, 1958, Michael Jackson was the seventh child of the famed Jackson family. He kicked off his career at age 11 as a child star in the band The Jackson 5. While still a member of group, he launched a solo career in 1971.
Jackson went on to win 13 Grammys and boast 13 number one singles. His 1982 album Thriller remains the biggest-selling album of all time, with more than 26 million copies.
Farrah Fawcett has died after a long battle with cancer, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
Farrah died at 9:28 AM on Thursday at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif.
She was 62.
"After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away," Farrah's longtime companion, Ryan O'Neal, said in a statement to Access. "Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."
The actress, best known for her role in the '70s TV show "Charlie's Angels" and her iconic hair, was in the hospital earlier this month and a source close to Farrah told Access Hollywood at the time that she was not doing well.
While her condition was deteriorating, those closest to Farrah wanted to take her home for her final days.
Her death comes just days after O'Neal revealed he had asked Farrah to be his wife.
However, a source has confirmed to Access that Ryan and Farrah did not get married prior to her death.
