Michael Jackson‘s father, Joe Jackson was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Friday, May 13 after feeling weak during routine check-up with his doctor.
According to TMZ, the 87-year-old got a high fever while having tests done, but doctors aren’t sure what is wrong with him.
Joe’s son Jermaine Jackson – brother of the late ‘king of pop’ Michael, who died in 2009 aged 50 – told TMZ: ‘My father is doing much better. We were all worried but he’s doing much better, he’s much healthier and we’re very happy about that.
‘He got weak and they rushed him … he was doing a normal check-up and he got weak and they admitted him.
Last August, Joe was hospitalised in Brazil, where he was celebrating his 87th birthday, after suffering a stroke and three heart attacks.
He was reported to have taken three Viagra pills at the time.
Jermaine added: ‘He’s much better. All of his vital signs are great and we’re very happy.
‘He’s just tired. He’s 87. We’re just trying to hold onto him as much as we can.’
Joe’s children include singers La Toya Jackson, Janet Jackson, and Randy Jackson.
Others are Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael that made up pop band, Jackson 5.
