SAO PAULO (AP) - One of the organizers of a birthday party that brought the father of the late Michael Jackson to Brazil says he’s in stable condition in a Sao Paulo hospital after suffering a stroke.

Paulo Andre Silva is a partner at Nexxing, the company that invited Joe Jackson to Brazil. He says the 87-year-old Jackson remains in the intensive care unit of the Albert Einstein Hospital, where he was admitted on Sunday. The hospital was not immediately available for comment on Tuesday.

Silva said Tuesday that about 10 Jackson family members are expected to arrive in Sao Paulo this week.

Jackson arrived in Sao Paulo on July 22 and attended several events before falling ill.
