Michael Jackson’s Death: Conspiracy or Cardiac Arrest?

Okay. You know me. I’ll cover a conspiracy theory. Whenever someone as famous as Michael Jackson dies, you can bet your most prized possession that there will be a Michael Jackson Conspiracy Theory. And I’ll be here to find and post as many as I can!

Michael Jackson died today at the age of 50. He had been living just off the Sunset Strip for the past several months in a $100,000 per month rental house. For weeks he has been rehearsing for his 50-show comeback tour in London’s O2 arena. There was a lot of money tied up in those shows. I’ve seen a few people say that Michael’s death is somehow related to money, but I bet that the sponsor (AEG Live) of his 50-show comeback tour will argue that theory because there is a massive financial headache and potential fallout from Michael’s untimely death.

Now, here are some of the ‘Michael Jackson died from’ theories and conspiracy theories circulating around the world right now:

  • Did painkiller addiction and pressure of making a comeback kill Michael Jackson? (dailymail.co.uk)
  • Collapsed after an injection of Demerol (thesun.co.uk)
  • Michael Jackson is dead…Now how long until it becomes a conspiracy? (abovetopsecret.com)
  • Michael Jackson’s death brings conspiracy theory back into spotlight (jacksonnjonline.com)
  • Michael Jackson faked his own death (colbertnation.com)
  • MJ killed by new experimental bio weapon (topix.com)
  • Was Michael Jackson murdered? (selectsmart.com)
  • Tito did it? (wikipedia.org) [some jerk always has to make stupid edits to Wiki after tragedies]
  • Faked his death to pay off debt and make money (denverpost.com)
  • They come in 3’s: Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson (penny-arcade.com)

I, for one, believe Michael Jackson has died. I believe he is dead. TMZ, who broke the news of Michael Jackson’s death earlier today, is reporting that MJ’s autopsy has been expidited. It will take place tomorrow. Hopefully we will all find out the exact cause of his death, so everyone out there can have some closure. However, I’m sure that no matter what the coroner says, conspiracy theories will abound. People will claim that Michael Jackson killed himself, was murdered, faked his death, etc… That’s just the nature of humans these days. When anything happens, we have to create a conspiracy theory. But who knows? Maybe they are right – because it’s also true that nothing is what it seems these days.

Regardless, this was definitely a tragedy. No question about it. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael’s family and friends. May the King of Pop rest in peace.

Michael Jackson is Dead (TMZ Reports)

Holy crap! TMZ is reporting that Michael Jackson has died of a cardiac arrest (source):

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive.

We’re told one of the staff members at Jackson’s home called 911.

La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead.

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

Wow. I’m stunned. Simply stunned.

After looking at several news websites more information is coming out, but no one has officially reported his death.

From the LA Times Blog (source):

[Updated at 2:46 p.m.: Pop star Michael 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.

TMZ is reporting that Michael Jackson has died. No one else is reporting that he is dead. And I mean no one. In fact, the LA Times Blog is saying that Michael Jackson is in a coma and that his family are arriving at his bedside. Let’s hope for the best. It would be terrible to lose the King of Pop at only 50-years-old.

From the New York Times (source):

Reports: Jackson in a Coma | 6:15 p.m.  Several news organizations including the Los Angeles Times reported that Mr. Jackson “is in a coma.” The newspaper attributed the news to one law enforcement source. CNN is also citing “multiple sources” as saying that Mr. Jackson is in a coma.

From the Los Angeles Times (source):

[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.
