Last week the patriarch to the Jackson clan was admitted to the hospital and rumors escalated about the true nature of the 87 year-old’s health with some alleging he had died.
Joe Jackson had suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday in July 2015 causing his health to became a priority to members of his family, hence when a high fever was discovered during a routine checkup his family made sure he received the best bed-rest, in a Los Angeles hospital.
Little did they know, many will turn it to a death sentence.
In a bid to rectify the health scare lest the public killed him before his time, Joe Jackson made a post on his website jwjackson.com.
The title read, “I Am 100% Alive” before proceeding with: “The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Please ignore all the stupid false rumors from people who seem to find humor in such topics.”
The post was signed ‘Joseph Jackson, Patriarch of the Jackson Music Family’, and was followed by a picture of him chilling at a beachside resort, looking like anything but a man who is dead.
His wife Katherine, granddaughter Paris Jackson, and daughter Latoya Jackson were spotted visiting Joe on Thursday, (May, 19) just as his son, Jermaine Jackson talked about his father’s health in a video interview.
Jermaine said, “We were all worried, but he’s doing much better. He’s much healthier and we’re very happy about that.
All his vital signs are great. He’s just tired. He’s 87. We’re just trying to hold onto him as long as we can.”
Dear world, Joe Jackson is recuperating and will be home soon, please don’t kill him before his time. Thank you, lol.
