Michael Jackson’s Brother Randy Hospitalized

Randy Jackson, younger brother of King of Pop Michael Jackson, was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon after suffering chest pains.

The 48-year-old Jackson became ill at about noon, and was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, CA. He may possibly have suffered a heart attack. He underwent medical tests, the results of which are still pending, an anonymous source close to the Jackson family told the Associated Press.

The previous day, Jackson had been in court with his family to attend a hearing in the Conrad Murray case. Murray is the doctor accused of voluntary manslaughter in connection with Michael Jackson's death. Last week, Jackson appeared on CNN's "Newsroom," where he said he believed that Dr. Murray should be charged with first-degree murder.

Jackson had been active on Twitter in recent weeks, protecting his brother's legacy by stopping an unauthorized tribute concert, and helping fans gain access to Michael Jackson's grave site on the anniversary of his death, so they could pay tribute to the late singer. "At times, I'm sad & broken," he tweeted to Jackson's fans. ""But ur supprt helps 2 encourage me and fuel my motivation 2 continue this fight 4 truth&justice."
