Michael Jackson was rushed to UCLA Medical Center by ambulance Thursday after he had stopped breathing, according to reports.

Paramedics arrived at the Los Angeles home of the 50-year-old King of Pop shortly before 12:30 p.m., Fire Department Capt. Steve Ruda tells the Los Angles Times. Jackson wasn't breathing and the paramedics performed CPR, Ruda says.

He was taken by ambulance to the hospital, which was just two minutes away.

"His mother is on her way to the hospital now to check in on him," Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, tells E! from his home in Las Vegas. "I am not sure what's wrong. I am waiting to hear back from them."
