Singer Michael Jackson ‘dies’

Pop singer Michael Jackson has died after being found unconscious at his home in Los Angeles, US media reports say.

Paramedics were sent to Jackson‘s home in the Bel-Air area of the city on Thursday at 12.21pm (2021 GMT), but they were unable to revive him, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“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,” the newspaper reported on its website.

The UCLA medical centre has not confirmed that Jackson has died, but the Associated Press reported that a person with “knowledge of the situation” had told them that the singer had died in hospital.

The news comes four months after Jackson, 50, announced that he was to perform a series of 50 shows in London in July.

The shows were seen as the beginning of a public comeback by Jackson, who had spent recent years countering a series of damaging allegations about his private life, none of which were proved in court.
