Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson is dying and his family have been banned from seeing him, it has been claimed. The late King of Pop’s dad, 89, is said to be dying of an undisclosed illness and his son Jermaine Jackson has revealed the drama surrounding his last days.
Joe’s handlers allegedly barred senior family members from visiting him, leading to intense discussions for four days with his confused sons and daughters.
“No one knew what was going on — we shouldn’t have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this,” Jermaine told the Daily Mail.
“We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn’t get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick.”
The 89-year-old father of eleven has been ill for months, but took a turn for the worse in the past week, sources close to the family have disclosed.Celebrity Big Brother star Jermaine, 63, added: “He’s very very frail, he doesn’t have long. The family needs to be by his bedside — that’s our only intention in his final days.
“It’s what any family would want, but some people around him think they know better … and they don’t.”It’s understood Joe’s wife Katherine and their daughter Rebbie had finally been able to visit Joe at his Vegas home last week after learning his health had deteriorated.
