After suffering three heart attacks, one stroke, and a ruptured blood vessel in his eye while in São Paulo, Brazil, doctors have allegedly discovered that Joe Jackson had taken three Viagra pills with alcohol just hours before his stroke.

As reported in the Inquisitr, Joe Jackson was in Brazil for a blowout for his 87th birthday when he became dizzy and lost his vision. He was admitted to Albert Einstein Hospital. After admission, it was determined that he suffered three heart attacks and a stroke, but at the time they didn’t know why. At that point, they installed a pacemaker.

Joe Jackson has had health issues, including strokes in the past.

“This stroke was his fourth or fifth that he’s suffered in past two years and while in the hospital he suffered at least two heart attacks,” a family insider told Radar Online.

According to Radar Online, Joe Jackson was partying a bit too hard for a man of his age.

“Jackson was seen with a number of beautiful young women, including a busty redhead, in the nights leading to his $200,000 birthday bash in South America, swilling caipirinha cocktail, a local favorite. He ‘overdid it’ in the nights leading to the planned party, the Brazilian newspaper Diario de Sao Paulo reported, most notably taking ‘three little blue pills’ to achieve an erection.”

“It was too much for him,” the paper reported.

According to the Daily Mail, Jackson has had issues with erectile dysfunction since his first stroke.

“The ‘bigger problem’ was that he also had taken ‘three little blue pills’ for erectile dysfunction.”

“It was too much for him and he suffered a stroke,’ continued O Diario de Sao Paulo, adding that his entourage was left ‘shocked’ by the incident. An even more colorful version of Jackson’s antics was reported by a well-known celebrity columnist.He was visiting an area of Sao Paulo known for low-rent prostitution when he took the Viagra pills, according to Leo Dias, from the O Dia tabloid.”

Joe Jackson has allegedly been discharged from Albert Einstein Hospital in order to recover in a private clinic until he is stable enough to take the flight back to Los Angeles. Daughter Janet Jackson and Joe’s wife, Katherine, have been by his side since soon after his medical emergency.
