Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family, which includes everyone from the late Michael to Janet, suffed a mild stroke on Thursday (Nov. 29.)

Papa Jackson is recovering and doing better, according to a tweet from daughter LaToya, who thanked fans for their concern over Joe. He is 84.

Joe Jackson, who once managed his sons in the Jackson 5, was admitted to a hospital in Las Vegas after becoming ill. He is expected to be sent home today, according to WENN. That should be a relief to the extended Jackson clan.

LaToya’s tweet about her father’s condition is below. She does not provide much information about what exactly happened, but she does let fans know that he is doing better. It’s worth nothing that Jackson had suffered two similar strokes in the past five years.
