Randy Jackson, brother of the late pop legend Michael, has been taken to hospital in southern California.
Randy, 48, was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena after experiencing chest pains, and is currently awaiting the outcome of tests, a source close to the Jackson family said.
The source said doctors at the hospital think it was a mild heart attack, but this has not yet been confirmed.
On Monday, Randy was in court with his family for a hearing in the involuntary manslaughter case of Dr Conrad Murray who is accused in connection with Michael Jackson's death.
Randy arrived after everyone else and stopped to hug his parents, his brothers and sister LaToya before the hearing began.
In a series of posts on Twitter in the last few weeks, Randy Jackson said he had succeeded in stopping an unapproved tribute show to Michael in Rome which had been scheduled on June 25, the anniversary of his death.
He said he had also been talking to officials at Forest Lawn Glendale in an effort to have fans admitted to the area near Jackson's tomb on the anniversary.
He said in his posts that the fans had been a great source of comfort to him.
"At times, I'm sad and broken," he tweeted. "But ur support helps 2 encourage me and fuel my motivation 2 continue this fight 4 truth and justice."
