This is awful!
Here's the whole story (below):
The Jackson family patriarch, Joe Jackson, has suffered a stroke!
A friend close to the Jackson's says the stroke happened Thursday morning, and he is currently being treated in a Las Vegas hospital.
Despite the health scare Joe is sad to be " in very good spirits."
The stroke has been described as "mild," so Michael Jackson's pop should be released from the hospital sometime Friday.
We wish you health and happiness Joe!
Gawd knows that family does not deserve another heart ache!
