Family patriarch Joseph Jackson, 83, suffered a mild stroke yesterday morning in Las Vegas and is receiving treatment at an area hospital.
His pal Rutt Premsrirut said, "He's fine. He's back to the regular Joe Jackson, cracking jokes and talking."
Joe sought emergency medical treatment after having trouble standing up and walking. He has suffered two similar incidents in the past five years.
The former Jackson 5 manager resides in Sin City and stays busy promoting several businesses and products. His wife Katherine Jackson lives in Calabasas, California with Michael Jackson's three children.
