“He’s very, very frail, he doesn’t have long,” Jermaine told the Mail. “The family needs to be by his bedside — that’s our only intention in his final days…We shouldn’t have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this. We have been hurting…My mother was worried sick.”
This comes a year after Joe Jackson was injured in a car accident in Las Vegas. He had also suffered various medical problems in recent years, including dementia, strokes, and a heart attack.
