A fire department official told the Los Angeles Times Thursday evening that Michael Jackson has been rushed to the hospital.
The official told the newspaper that Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his LA home about 12:30 p.m.
The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, the official said.
L. Londell McMillan, a lawyer for Jackson, did not have any information. Messages left for other Jackson associates were not immediately returned.
CNN reported that Jackson was taken to hospital in a condition of cardiac arrest.
