Family sources told the entertainment news outlet that Joe passed away at 3:30 AM on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
“Joe had been battling health problems for some time now. He was hospitalised back in 2016 after coming down with a high fever. But, he bounced back not long after and was seen partying in Vegas.
“His health was also fragile after a stroke and three heart attacks back in 2015. Doctors implanted a pacemaker,” the report read.
