Joe Jackson, father of the late Michael Jackson, has been hospitalized.

The 87-year-old was undergoing a routine checkup with his Los Angeles-based doctor last Friday when he fell ill. TMZ reports that during his physical, Jackson became weak and suddenly struck a high fever; he has been in the hospital ever since. Jackson will remain under doctors’ care until physicians determine a diagnosis.

This isn’t the first health scare involving the talent manager. Last year, he suffered a stroke associated with cardiac arrhythmia while celebrating his birthday in Brazil.

This is a developing story. Stay tuned for updates.
