Joe Jackson, father of the Jackson singers including Michael, is recovering from a stroke in Brazil, after entering a Sao Paulo hospital Sunday on his 87th birthday.
Several gossip sites said he underwent pacemaker-implant surgery.
It was his latest stroke in a series. A 2012 stroke in Las Vegas was not considered life-threatening. His Twitter account was being used to share well wishes and thanks.
