Michael Jackson’s Brother, Randy, Suffers Heart Attack
Another blow to the Jackson family…
Michael Jackson’s brother Randy Jackson was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday after reporting chest pains and doctors believe he suffered a mild heart attack, a source close to the family quoted doctors as saying.
The 48-year-old had spoken with his father, Joe Jackson, over the phone, the source told KABC Television, OnTheRedCarpet.com’s parent company, adding that Randy Jackson was “joking and seemed okay”.
He is undergoing tests, the source said. Randy Jackson is the youngest Jackson brother and was one of the members of the Jackson Five, as well as a solo artist. He wrote The Jacksons’ most successful single on Epic Records, “Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground),” when he was about 16.
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at his Los Angeles home. His brother is not to be confused with American Idol judge Randy Jackson, who is not related to the family.
