  • 1  Michael Jackson  The
1. Michael Jackson. The King of Pop got his start as the adorable front-man for The Jackson 5. Eventually Michael achieved international success with his solo career, establishing him as musical legend. Unfortunately, his career was undermined by accusations of pedophilia and financial and legal troubles. In 2009 he died from an apparent prescription drug overdose. He was 50.

    you do realize hes considered a child star because he started his career as a child right? child star doesnt mean they are still a child and around 50 is still really young he only lived half his life

    Hello, what about Heather O'Rourke from "Poltergeist"? She was only 12 or 13 when she died. And MICHAEL JACKSON in the number one spot? Seriously? I don't think former child stars are the only ones doing massive amounts of smack.

    While these deaths are tragic, someone who dies in thier late 40's or early 50's is not a child star dying too soon. They are an adult star. Sorry..
