We’ve just learned Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Los Angeles … and we’re told it was cardiac arrest and that paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance … and it’s looking bad.
He was picked up at his home around 20 minutes ago — we’re told his mother is on the way to visit him.
UPDATE: The 911 call came in at 12:21PM at his Holmby Hills home in L.A.
UPDATE: A Jackson family member tells TMZ Michael is in “really bad shape” and the brothers are headed to UCLA.
UPDATE: We just got off the phone with Joe Jackson, Michael’s dad, who says “he is not doing well.”
Hat-tip to my boy Subrosa for the tasteless story title. Subrosa is the best attorney in the Bay Area, in case you were wondering. You should call him if you ever accidentally kill someone.
Farrah Fawcett died in a Santa Monica hospital today around 9:30am. Ryan O’Neal, who recently asked Farrah to marry him, was by her side when she passed away.
“After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away,” O’Neal said. “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.”
Doctors diagnosed Farrah with anal cancer in 2006. Although she underwent chemotherapy and traveled to Germany for experimental treatments, Farrah’s health deteriorated steadily over the past year.
