Joe Jackson was hospitalized today following a routine check-up at his doctor's office — and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details.
A source close to the Jackson family told Radar, "Joe was rushed to a nearby hospital and he is not expected to make it."
According to reports, the 87-year-old became feeble as his personal doctor ran a few tests, coming down with a high fever in a matter of minutes.
He was admitted into the hospital shortly after.
"The Jackson clan is just beyond upset but they are all coming together to be there for him. No one expected him to last this long," the insider told Radar exclusively. "Joe will most likely be dead today. He is in real bad shape."
As Radar previoiusly reported, ever since his massive stroke last summer, the Jackson patriarch seems "to be at death's door and requires a team of home care nurses 24/7 ."
The iconic father to late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was last photographed shortly after his stroke, during which time he looked like a shell of his former self.
"His medical condition is so far gone and Joe has not left his bed in months," a source told Radar at the time. "That is on doctor's orders. He is literally not allowed to leave his house. It is really bad."
