The head of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson, has been left blind after suffering a stroke while enjoying celebrations for his 87th birthday.

Joe was admitted to Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo after waking up yesterday feeling dizzy with no vision.

The stroke is expected to leave Joe, who suffers with diabetes, with temporary blindness at the very least.

Family sources revealed doctors are currently running tests and debating whether to send the talent manager back to America for further medical treatment.

Hours earlier, Joe's daughter Janet shared a touching message with her social media followers.

 

La Toya Jackson also posted a sweet birthday message to her father.

 

Neither Janet nor La Toya has spoken about the suspected stroke, with their brothers Jermaine and Tito also staying quiet online.

Us Weekly reports Joe has previously suffered three strokes, including a mild one in November 2012. For the latter he received care at a Las Vegas hospital after complaining of having pains in his head and difficulty standing.
