Michael Jackson’s Father, Joe Jackson, Suffers A Stroke During His Birthday Party

87-year-old Joe Jackson, father of the infamous king of pop Michael Jackson, visited Brazil a few days ago in order to celebrate his birthday. However, most of the guests were left completely shocked when he suffered a stroke and was subsequently admitted to The Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo.

The above picture was taken minutes before his accident and, as his website reveals, he was dining and having fun with the locals in the South American nation.

According to the Associated Press, Jackson was admitted to an intensive care unit on Sunday afternoon, the day of his 87th birthday. Although there is no official information regarding his current condition, sources close to his family revealed to TMZ that the patriarch of the Jackson’s music family woke up after his stroke, feeling dizzy, but was left temporarily blind.
