According to Angel Howansky, Jackson was driven to a Las Vegas hospital on Wednesday, Nov. 28, after he experienced trouble standing and moving. He also complained of having pains in his head.
Howansky added, however, that the famed patriarch was feeling better on Thursday and expected to be released from the hospital sometime on Friday. CNN reports that he is "in very good spirits."
