Media outlets swarmed Huntington Hospital on Tuesday waiting for confirmation that Randy Jackson, brother of the late Michael Jackson, was being treated for chest pains.
A source close to the Jackson family who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly said Jackson, 48, experienced chest pains around noon and was taken to Huntington, where he is awaiting the outcome of tests. The source said doctors think it was a mild heart attack, but this has not yet been confirmed.
The announcement sparked a media frenzy. CBS, ABC and the Star-News were on scene, but unable to confirm whether the member of the Jackson 5 was being treated at Huntington.
"By law, I can only confirm patients that are in our hospital database," said Andrea Stalding, hospital spokeswoman.
Randy Jackson's hospitalization comes less than one year after his brother died, shocking many in the entertainment world and beyond.
