TMZ and other sites are reporting that wowlebrity Michael Jackson, who was set to play a series of concerts at the O2 Arena in London, was rushed in an ambulance from his home in Beverly Hills to the hospital about two hours ago. The ambulance, where Jackson received CPR en route, was followed by two SUVs, from which 10 passengers stepped out at the hospital. Jackson is no stranger to the emergency room or doctors, what with one thing or another over the years; at the moment, he’s said to be suffering from skin cancer and has been under treatment for months. It’s being speculated by the cynics here at WOW that the emergency is just a ruse to get the King of Pop out of his O2 arena contract. Developing.
UPDATE: The King of Pop is dead. OMG. Michael Jackson is, for real, dead. He suffered cardiac arrest this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. He was 50.
