Oh no!

On Sunday, Joe Jackson suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday while in Sao Paulo, Brazil for a party thrown in his honor. However, the stroke forced the Jackson 5 founder to miss his own birthday celebration.

How sad.

It’s said the Jackson patriarch is now at the Albert Einstein Hospital following his health set back. The 87-year-old was placed in the intensive care unit and reportedly also suffered from an irregular heartbeat.

Mere hours before the medical incident, the talent manager’s daughter Janet Jackson took to Twitter to send a sweet message to her father on his special day.

She shared:

Joe has reportedly suffered three strokes in the past. He most recently suffered a mild stroke in 2012 after complaining about pain in his head and difficulty standing.


However, it appears that Michael Jackson‘s father was immensely enjoying his trip to South America prior to his stroke. The controversial celeb even took to the social media site (below) to share his fun times in Brazil.

We wish Mr. Jackson a very speedy recovery. Stay tuned for more details.
