According to a statement issued by The Albert Einstein hospital in São Paulo, 87-year-old Joe Jackson was admitted Sunday afternoon (July 26) to their intensive care unit following a stroke.
The father of Michael Jackson, suffered three heart attacks and has been fitted with a pacemaker during an emergency surgery. His heart stopped beating for 10 seconds before he was revived by medical staff at the Albert Einstein Hospital.
He flew to Brazil to celebrate his 87th birthday but missed his birthday party on Saturday because he wasn't feeling well.
He was due back to the US on Tuesday. Family members want Jackson to return to the US for treatment, but at the moment his health is too uncertain to travel.
