MICHAEL Jackson has died after suffering a heart attack, reports from the United States have said.

Jackson was rushed to hospital after ambulance officers were called to his home, where he had stopped breathing.

TMZ were told: "when paramedics arrived, Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back."

The Los Angeles Times reported Jackson was in a coma when he arrived at the UCLA hospital.  It reported that he was pronounced dead by medical staff soon after his arrival.

Jackson is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics were first at the scene of the singer's $US100,000-a-month rented home in Holmby Hills near Sunset Boulevard about 12.12pm (local time).



Jackson was reportedly planning a comeback and was living in LA while rehearsing a series of 50 sold-out shows in London.

However those concerts - billed as the "final curtain" - had been thrown into doubt after Jackson pushed back the opening dates last month.

Organisers of the concerts had stressed the delay was not linked to Jackson's health.

At least he and Princess Di can now have a chat.

Yeah, I've seen a few already. But I don't think anyone will be able to say that he wasn't one of the greatest entertainers of our time. You can make jokes but shit he was good.

Hey, did you hear Michael Jackson had asked to be buried at sea? He wanted them to tip him overboard tied to two buoys.



I've heard that authorities are not sure what to blame his death on, the sunshine, the moonlight, or the boogie...

Reports that Michael Jackson has had a heart attack are false, he's been found in the childrens ward having a stroke.

It wasn't a heart attack it was food poisoning. He got it eating 12 year old nuts.

Well, he had "interesting" taste when it came to cars.  :?

Some would even say a rather boring collection, but each to their own I guess.

Back in February it was announced that a collection of items belonging to Michael Jackson would be auctioned off, including his own fleet of vehicles.  Although that auction was cancelled in mid-April, it gave us a chance see how the King of Pop lived while being chauffeured around California.

Now that MJ has passed on, we decided to take a look back at these vehicles.  It is unknown what will happen to many of the Neverland Ranch possessions (Jackson did have a lot of debt), and surely some of these will wind up either on the auction block, or in a museum.

Jackson owned at least four limousines, including a 1999 Rolls Royce Silver Seraph that was unusually decorated, to say the least.  Our friends at Jalopnik described it well, when they said, "The dark blue Seraph wears an interior which looks to have been pulled directly from the Palace of Versailles."  Jackson was said to have designed the interior himself, which probably explains the generous use of 24-carat gold.  The vehicle was said to have a 5.4-liter V12 aluminum engine that generated up to 322 horsepower.

He also owned a 1990 RollS Royce Silver Spur II, trimmed in contrasting white leather and black fabric.  Dark, tinted windows were adorned in white curtains, and a full-service bar that was used for god-knows-what.  His white, 1988 Lincoln Town Car had a much more subdued interior that used gray leather and fabric.  The fourth limo is the same 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood used during the filming of Driving Miss Daisy.  Jackson's collection included a 1997 Neoplan Tour Bus with individual seats and booths, and a king's crown embroidered in the carpet.  Possibly used on the HIStory World Tour, the bus featured a bathroom lined in porcelain, gold, and granite.

A few of his other vehicles included a 1993 Ford Econoline van with leather seats, individual tv screens, and an old-school video game console, a 1986 GMC High Sierra firetruck, a 1988 GMC Jimmy, and a replica of a 1909 Detamble Model B Roadster.  Amongst the collection was an electrified horse-drawn carriage, and a 2001 Harley Davidson touring police bike.
