Joe Jackson, father of Michael, Janet and the rest of the Jackson 5 children, has been hospitalized.

The 87-year-old patriarch was admitted to the hospital for a mystery ailment after a checkup on Wednesday (May 18), Us Weekly reports.

“He wasn’t feeling well over the weekend and last week and he was very sick, so they made an appointment for him to see his doctor and the doctor admitted him to the hospital,” a source said. “They couldn’t really pinpoint what was wrong with him. He had an extremely high fever.”

The source said Joe’s condition has been stabilized.
