Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson’s Dad, Suffers a Stroke

Joe Jackson, the 83-year-old patriarch of the Jackson Family and father of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital.

X17 broke the story.

A family insider told Fox:

He’s in ‘serious’ condition. Joe has been struggling with his health a lot over the past three or four months. The good thing is that he was taken immediately to the hospital as he was with a couple of people at the time.

Michael’s mom, Katherine, recently had a mini-stroke shortly before her family shipped her to Arizona for some supposed R&R that Michael’s daughter Paris described as an abduction.

Joe is a former boxer who managed the Jackson 5 to fame but was later described by his children, including Michael, as an abusive a-hole.
