Father of 11 Joe Jackson has been hospitalized in LA after failing a doctor’s visit on Friday.
While a diagnosis is yet to be released, Jackson allegedly ‘became weak’ and presented with a high fever.
Son Jermaine Jackson confirmed the news to TMZ.
“He’s 87,” Jeremiah told the news organisation.
“Listen, my father’s very strong. He’s up there telling jokes, and he’s very strong. He’s doing fine.

“We’re all holding up well. We’re just making sure to hold on to him as long as we can. That’s what’s most important.”
Joe Jackson is the father of the late Michael Jackson, as well as Janet Jackson who this month announced her pregnancy.
