Late Wednesday night or early yesterday morning, Joe Jackson, the father of Michael Jackson, suffered a stroke. Apparently Katherine is on her way to see him in Vegas and hopefully while she is gone this time her children will not try and stage a mutiny. I'm not sure why she is still married to the guy or exactly how a marriage works when you live five hours from each other, but apparently this is what she likes. he can sit by the pool all day and tell a bunch of 18 year old women that he can make them famous if they will just rub his bunions and Katherine can just stay in Los Angeles and take care of her grandkids. I always wondered that if Joe Jackson had died before Michael did, if Michael would go to Joe's funeral. I know the rest of the family would have, but I think Michael would have stayed away.
