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.
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.
