EXCLUSIVE: Joe Jackson, 87, suffered stroke after 'taking three Viagras' in Brazil (and when he was having his life saved in hospital he ordered the party to go on) Jackson family patriarch was in Sao Paulo when he suffered a stroke and three heart attacks Hours after arriving he was dining with a group of 'voluptuous' young women Recovered in hospital in city and was released today but ordered parties to go on without him as his family and friends visit him Joe Jackson suffered a stroke and three heart attacks after a night of partying with younger women in Brazil - amid claims that he took three Viagra pills. The 87-year-old flew into the country two weeks ago for a pleasure trip set to include a $200,000-birthday blowout in his honor but ended up being rushed to hospital on the eve of the celebration. Now as he recovers in Sao Paulo after being released today from hospital, it has emerged the temptations of the Brazilian party city may have been physically too much for Michael Jackson's father. Just hours after his arrival in the country, the Jackson patriarch was spotted dining with a group of ladies including a voluptuous – and much younger - woman at an upscale restaurant. Two days later he hit the town once again with the attractive redhead and other women, and was said to have been out until the early hours. Party here: Before he had his heart attack, Joe Jackson seemed determined to enjoy Brazilian life3 Visit: Joe Jackson and French singer Angelina Silitti visited the Brazilian soccer club Corinthians' training center in Sao Paulo shortly before he suffered a stroke He was 'feeling unwell' the following day - July 26 -, according to his representative, and was eventually taken to hospital for what turned to have been a stroke. It was followed by multiple cardiac arrests – including one where his heart stopped for 10 seconds – that led doctors to fit him with a pacemaker. But the story of how he got there appears to be much more salacious than anyone would imagine. According to a local newspaper, the octogenarian 'overdid it' on his second big night out with his lady friends. As they visited a number of bars and restaurants, he is said to have mixed the local cocktail of caipirinha - made with Brazilian sugarcane rum – with other drinks. But the 'bigger problem' was that he also had taken 'three little blue pills' for erectile dysfunction.
