Poor Joe Jackson.
Janet Jackson's father is back in the hospital. Last year, he served a scary stint in a medical center after suffering from a stroke in Brazil.
Now, the 87-year-old is back in a hospital bed after things got serious at a routine checkup.

Sources say the talent manager wasn't feeling well on Friday while getting some tests done with his personal doctor. Insiders explain the Arkansas native was getting weak during the exam and developed a high fever.
Confidantes confess that Mr. Jackson was admitted to the hospital by his doctor that day and has been there ever since.
The famous father is reportedly still running a high fever, and medical professionals haven't been able to figure out what's causing his latest ailment.
However, his son, Jermaine, was a bit more optimistic over the weekend when the paparazzi asked him about his poppa's condition, because he said:
"My father's doing much better. We were all worried, but he's doing much better. He's much healthier and we're very happy about that. All his vital signs are great. He's just tired. He's 87. We're just tryin' to hold onto him as long as we can. He's up there telling jokes! He's very strong. He's doing just fine."
We hope Joe makes a speedy recovery!
