Michael Jackson's father was checked into a medical facility after things got a bit serious at a routine checkup. While at the hospital, the 87-year-old was supposedly running a high fever and docs couldn't quite figure out what was wrong.
However, Janet Jackson's poppa says he's on the mend! He took to his website to update fans about his current condition, writing:
"I would like to thank you all for the get well wishes and prayers. I am doing much better and growing stronger by the day. Doctors have ordered rest. Thank you always for having me in your thoughts and prayers."
However, not everyone thought he was going to recover. When word got out about his hospitalized, rumors ran rampant that the famous father had actually passed away!
Last week, the Arkansas native posted to his site to slam the speculation, penning:
FBF May 20, 2010: "Short hair don't care! This was such a great look for Janet! And I love how she's wearing her hair now too! She's had so many iconic hair moments. And she looks good in almost every one!"
With summer soon approaching, it seems the new thing to do is sport a pixie cut.
And the latest celeb to chop off her long locks, is surprisingly Janet Jackson.
Miz Jackson was spotted last night leaving Nobu restaurant in London showing off her new look.
We can't even recall the last time we've seen Janet with such short locks. But the 44-year-old looked confident as she walked to her waiting car.
We're glad she's loving her new look, but what do U think of her short hairstyle?
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 sister Janet is my baby. She is fine but she's having a baby. A baby having a baby. We look at her like our little baby. And now she's grown-up and she's having a baby. I'm proud to be an uncle and I can't wait to see how this baby is going to look."
Aww!! He even continued, adding that while he doesn't know about her cravings, the momma-to-be is healthy:
"She is feeling fine. Oh, my God! Janet loves to eat. I really don't know what she's craving, but I do know that she likes to eat!"
LOLz! Jermaine was just spilling it all!
Though the pop singer's brother also shared his thoughts on her parenting style:
This will be the first child for Jackson and her husband of four years, Wissam Al Mana. Since the singer is coming up on 50-years-old, we imagine this milestone took a lot of time and patience to reach.
A big congrats to the happy couple on their growing family! You two deserve it!
