The patriarch of the multi-talented Jackson family, Joe Jackson, is reportedly hospitalized in Brazil after suffering what may have been a stroke. TMZ reports the father of entertainment legends Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson and others was in South America to celebrate his birthday when he woke up clearly in poor health on Sunday. “Papa Joe” as he’s also affectionately known, is said to have had an irregular heartbeat, been feeling dizzy and complaining of a loss of vision. Sources tell the entertainment website, the Jackson family is waiting for more information from doctors before they decide whether to have the 87 year old flown back here to the U.S. for further treatment.
