Michael Jackson's youngest brother Randy was rushed to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, Calif., yesterday, after experiencing sudden chest pains.
Jackson family members have not released any information with regards to the 48-year-old's condition. An undisclosed source, who is close to the legendary clan, told the Associated Press that they were not at liberty to discuss Randy's condition and that they are awaiting test results.
Randy's pains occurred around noon. On Monday, Randy attended Dr. Conrad Murray's hearing. Dr. Murray is accused of involuntary manslaughter in connection to the death of Michael. Reportedly, Randy was the last to arrive in the court room before the hearing proceedings began.
The youngest Jackson male sibling has been keeping a pretty busy schedule as of late: Last week, he did a live guest spot on CNN (see below) to discuss the Murray case. He also put the brakes on an unauthorized tribute to Michael in Rome, which would have taken place on the anniversary of his death. Randy tweeted the following, regarding the unapproved event:
"I also want to thank all of u for supporting me in an effort that has resulted in the cancellation of the tribute in Italy on the 25th."
Randy, along with officials at Forest Lawn in Glendale, Calif., where Michael was laid to rest, have been hammering out the final details of how fans can gain limited access to an area near where the mega entertainer is buried.
Recently, Randy tweeted about how the fans have been a great comfort to him.
"At times, I'm sad & broken," he tweeted. "But ur supprt helps 2 encourage me and fuel my motivation 2 continue this fight 4 truth & justice."
