Joe Jackson
has suffered a stroke -- and is currently being treated at a hospital.

A source close to the family tells TMZ, Michael Jackson's father suffered a "mini-stroke" last night. He was transported to a hospital, where he's still being treated.

Details surrounding the medical emergency are unclear, as well as how serious the actual stroke was.

Last time we saw Joe, he was in good spirits in Las Vegas, where he proudly showed off the gun he carries around in his jacket.

Joe Jackson had a stroke in 1998 and Michael was in Detroit and he did NOT run to the hospital to see his dad. He was not stupid, he knew his dad only cared about the money MJ was bringing in.

Really don't care if he suffered a stroke or "mini stroke" or if he lives or dies!! He is SO black-hearted and by the way he was all smiles the day the world was crying on June 25!!! What a disgusting man!!! He is only interested in how much money he can grab using Michael Jackson's name, thank God the Estate intervened!!!

Joe Jackson's recent stroke isn't life threatening, and is the third one he has suffered in past years, a family source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

"Joe is recovering well and everyone is confident he will be back to full health and on his feet again in no time," the source tells Radar.

Jackson's illegitimate daughter, JohVonnie Jackson, 38, also confirmed that Joe had a "baby stroke (as he calls it) and is in the hospital."

She went on to reveal: "I spoke to him briefly and he sounded like the same ol' daddy."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jackson, 83, is currently being treated at an undisclosed hospital.

Back in July, Katherine Jackson was reported to have suffered a small stroke before a mini-break in Arizona.
