King of Pop Michael Jackson’s younger brother, Randy Jackson, was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack.
The 48-year-old musician was admitted to Huntington Memorial in Pasadena, California, after he complained of chest pains.
“Randy has had a mild heart attack, but he is okay. He was joking around with his father and he is feeling pretty good all things considered. He’s been under a tremendous amount of stress lately but Randy is a fighter. He’ll pull through,” said a family friend.
The Jackson family had a spate of bad news recently as Dr Conrad Murray, Michael’s physician who was charged with ‘involuntary manslaughter’ after his death last year was given permission to continue practicing medicine.
The news of Randy’s ill health comes just days before the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker’s first death anniversary.
