(Newser) – The last picture of Michael Jackson—on a stretcher, being worked on by paramedics— came out last night, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, which slapped a huge logo on it and called it an exclusive, even though it was instantly all over TV and the web. More coverage of the King of Pop’s death:

  • TMZ has video of a tour group passing by Michael Jackson’s house just as the ambulance was leaving. “This is Michael Jackson's estate, everyone,” says the guide, “So we'll find out later in the news what happened.”

  • Also from TMZ: Michael rehearsed, as usual, the night before his death—but he showed up hours late and was “listless,” a source said.
  • Michael’s children—Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II, 7—will reportedly live with Jackson’s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, until long-term custody is sorted out, reports the Mail.
  • The Mail also takes a look at Jackson’s history of painkiller addiction, which some believe contributed to his death.
