Late Michael Jackson’s father Joe Jackson has been hospitalized in Las Vegas with stage four terminal cancer
The 89-year-old and father of 11 who has been battling the illness for some time is currently bedridden with stage four pancreatic cancer and his condition is rapidly deteriorating.
According to TMZ, he was visited at an unidentified hospital by some of his kids and grandkids after doctors informed his large family that the disease is untreatable. His wife of 68 years, Katherine Jackson, was also at his bedside recently.
The Daily Mail reported that there is a row over access to him as Jackson’s “handlers” had barred certain family members from visiting him.
Over the years, Jackson struggled with health issues including a 2012 stroke, a second stroke with heart accompanying arrhythmia in 2015 and a Los Angeles hospitalization in 2016.
