Joe Jackson is on his death bed in Brazil after suffering “life-threatening” heart attacks and a massive stroke, multiple sources confirm to RadarOnline.com exclusively.
According to Daily News, an emailed statement early Monday from the Albert Einstein Hospital stated that the 87-year-old Jackson was confined to the said hospital Sunday afternoon.
But one of the organizers of a party that brought Jackson to Brazil for his 87th birthday on Sunday said he was doing well.
He shocked fans of the Jacksons by admitting that he would punish Michael and his siblings by hitting them.
“The patient is being treated in the intensive care unit after being diagnosed with ischemic stroke associated with cardiac arrhythmia”, the hospital said. Jackson was admitted to Albert Einstein Hospital complaining of dizziness and loss of vision. “I want to thank you all for your prayers, unwavering support and kind well wishes during these trying times”.
The Jackson family patriarch’s most famous offspring, singer Michael Jackson, died six years ago.
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.
“I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world”.
Doctors treating Michael Jackson’s father for his recent stroke are waiting to see if he has been left permanently blind.
