According to TMZ, Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family has been hospitalized following a routine checkup. The 87-year-old was in the middle of his checkup at a Los Angeles hospital last Friday when he suddenly became weak and had a high fever. Jackson has remained at the hospital since then under doctors’ care until medical professionals are able to determine a diagnosis for his illness. Details are very scarce at the moment, as the story is still developing but we will be sure to have updates very soon. Get well papa Joe.
