*Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson is in a Los Angeles hospital after something went wrong during a routine checkup, according to TMZ.

Sources close to the family say Joe was undergoing several tests with his personal doctor last Friday when he became weak and struck a high fever. His doctor admitted him to the hospital and he’s been there ever since.

According to TMZ, Joe, 87, is still running a high fever, but docs can’t pinpoint exactly what’s wrong.

Below, Jermaine told TMZ over the weekend that he felt his father’s condition was improving.
