Joe Jackson suffers 'mild' stroke

Joe Jackson, the Jackson family patriarch, suffered a stroke Thursday morning and is being treated in a Las Vegas hospital, a source close to the Jackson family said.

Jackson, 83, "is in very good spirits" and expects to be sent home from the hospital Friday, said the source, who asked not to be identified.

The "mild" stroke is similar to two others he suffered in the past five years, another source close to Jackson said.

  1. That's just crazy talk

    I don't wish bad on anyone, but I'm not shedding tears over Joe Jackson's misfortune either.

    I loved Michael for 30 years, so that meant growing up hating on Joe...but you know...I know deep inside Michael loved his father...and Michael forgave him at least once ...And loving Michael truly I have to love his family for being his family...and in the end I´m sure the Jacksons grew up to be more decent than most people in this world...that doesn´t mean I agree with all the things they did to Michael...but I´m sure in the end they grew up to be humble good citizens, and better than most...especially since they had to work hard for everything they had in their life...the opposite of spoiled children of celebrities growing up having fame just because of their parents famous name and without talent and any decensy!!!

    I know Michael had so much pain and suffering because of his father Joe, but he WOULD HAVE overcome those things if he had only had the things and true love that was meant for him in this world...something his ignorant "friends"/employees stopped from ever happening the second they let those LEACHES in and forcing him to "fakemarry"....ignorant fools!!! I diotic plans and planners being so ignorant acctually thinking anything good could come out of that...while creting EVIL!!!

    Perhaps he should remove the heavy gold chain and hoop earring to relieve the pressure on his neck and face. Seriously, didn't that fad go away......
