He "is in very good spirits" and expects to be discharged today.

The mild stroke is similar to two others he suffered in the past five years, another source close to the 83-year-old Jackson said, and he should recover fully.

Joe Jackson created and managed the Jackson 5, the legendary R&B-pop group made up of his sons, including the late and iconic Michael Jackson.

Although he is still married to Jackson matriarch Katherine Jackson, they live separately. He has a home in Las Vegas, while his wife lives in Calabasas, Calif.

Michael Jackson's three children, Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson, live with her.

Despite his age, Jackson remains active in developing and promoting several businesses and products ... sometimes pulling guns and causing drama here and there.

Get well soon Joe.
