Sad news that Joe Jackson is not doing well, according to BlackDoctor.org.  Just as sad and unfortunate are the repots that the Jackson Family, including his wife, Katherine Jackson, have been given a hard-time with regards to seeing Mr. Jackson.

Jermaine Jackson, according to blackdoctor.org, said this regarding the family's struggle to see Mr. Jackson:

"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,’ he said. ‘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.  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."

Supposedly, according to the News Reports, the people caring for Joe Jackson say they are honoring Joe Jackson's wishes, such that his immediate family not be allowed to see or visit him.  The News Reports say the Jackson kids are said to be fighting to see Mr. Jackson.
