Joe Jackson, el padre del fallecido “rey del pop”, sufrió este pasado jueves un ataque al corazón que lo tiene internado en un centro hospitalario en la ciudad de Las Vegas, según informó su vocera, Angel Howansky.

Jackson acudió al hospital la noche del miércoles porque tenía problemas parándose y caminando. Se informa que el patriarca de los Jackson tenía muchas jaquecas y se hablaba de un derrame cerebral, pero se espera que sea dado de alta este viernes.

Al parecer, su esposa Katherine está ya con él en Las Vegas. Jackson vive ahí desde hace muchos años, mientras que ella vive en Los Angeles, donde cuida de los hijos de Michael.

Howansky también aseguró que en el pasado Joe ha tenido dos ataques similares.
