Joe Jackson

Member of the Jackson 1

Caring for Joe

EXCLUSIVE

Janet Jackson has put her life on hold to take care of her dad while he recovers from 3 heart attacks, and she's the only member of the brood who made the trek to Brazil.

We're told Janet arrived in Brazil Tuesday to tend to her father, cancelling rehearsals for her upcoming tour. We're told Janet limited the access to ICU, where Joe was hooked up for nearly a week.   

The good news ... Joe's now out of ICU and on the mend. He's eating solid foods and the goal is for him to regain enough strength so he can get on a plane and return to the U.S. for further treatment.

We're told La Toya and Jermaine were talking about flying over, but when Joe's condition improved they decided to wait until he came home.

If all goes well, Joe could return home as early as Monday.

Exclusive Details

0728-liam-neeson-getty-01Liam Neeson had fans worried when he was spotted over the weekend looking frail and gaunt ... but his rep says the "Taken" star is in good health. 

The rep says the 63-year-old actor is "healthy as ever," despite his ghostly appearance in the pic. The rep adds Neeson changed his diet and started doing more exercise about a year ago and credits that for the weight loss. 

Plus, the rep says ... it's just an unflattering pic. 

Apparently one of Neeson's "particular skills" ... is not always taking a great photo.

Joe Jackson

Reportedly Suffers Stroke

7/26/2015 7:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0726S-SINGLE-joe-jackson-brazil-AKMGSI-01Joe Jackson has reportedly suffered a stroke that left him at the very least temporarily blind.

Jackson family sources confirm to TMZ, Joe was admitted to the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo after reportedly waking up Sunday feeling dizzy, with no vision.

Joe, who has diabetes, was in the city for his 87th birthday party that was being thrown for him.

These pics were taken hours before the reported stroke.  

Family sources tell TMZ, doctors are running tests and they're trying to decide whether to fly Joe back to the U.S. for further treatment.  

Lamar Odom

Okay, Khloe Was Right ...

I'm Getting in Shape

7/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-lamar-odom-gym-instagram-01Lamar Odom is taking at least one piece of advice from his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian -- he's taking steps to get fit by hitting the gym again on the reg.  

Sources in Las Vegas tell us Lamar's been working out like crazy for the last month at a private fitness center called The R Club -- it's the gym in the gated community where he's now living. We're told he's putting in about 3 hours a day with a personal trainer. 

He's starting early too -- 7 AM for an outdoor run ... plus yoga, basketball, and weightlifting.

The ex-NBA baller had thickened up over the past 18 months or so -- since the split from Khloe.  

Based on the pic ... his workout regimen is working. We don't wanna call post breakup hotness, but seems perfectly timed with him and Khloe finally going through with the divorce.

Jared Fogle

DUMPED

By Kids' Health Charity

EXCLUSIVE

0707-jared-catch-logo-getty-01Subway was just the first domino for Jared Fogle -- a children's health charity is now cutting ties with him on the heels of the FBI's child pornography investigation. 

A spokesperson for CATCH tells us Tuesday's raid was the final straw for the organization as far as its work with the Jared Foundation. A spokesperson tells us the group had already stopped planning events in conjunction with Fogle's charity when its now former director Russell Taylor was arrested in April.

CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) had been working with Jared since 2011, but we're told it's now pulling the plug permanently. Just like Subway did ... Jared has been scrubbed from CATCH's website.

As we've reported ... Fogle has not been arrested or charged in the investigation.

Chaz Bono

Half the Man He Used to Be

EXCLUSIVE

Chaz Bono is the incredible disappearing man -- 'cause dude has nearly shed a whole Honey Boo Boo worth of lbs since dramatically changing his diet last year.

Chaz was barely recognizable as he was spotted in Los Angeles today ... walking around in shorts and a pretty tight tee.

Earlier this year, Chaz talked about how he dropped nearly 70 pounds -- not through surgery -- but through sticking to calorie-controlled meals ... and doing a ton of martial arts training.

Chaz's original goal was only to lose 50 lbs. -- so he's clearly blown that away.

Jessica and Kim K. ... take notes.
