Joseph Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family is dying, his son Jermaine has claimed and admitted that the family have been trying to contact him.

Michael Jacksons brother Jermaine, claims that the family were unable to visit the 89-year-old, who is said to be suffering from an undisclosed terminal illness.

Jermaine told Dailymail.co.uk that the people around the father-of-eleven have prevented the family, including his wife Katherine, from seeing him.

He said: No one knew what was going on – we shouldnt have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this. We have been hurting.

We were not being told where he was and couldnt get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick.

Hes very, very frail, he doesnt have long. The family needs to be by his bedside – thats our only intention in his final days.

Though the family is distraught by the lack of information surrounding him, it appears Joe had given verbal instructions preventing visitors and family members from seeing him or his medical records.

It is believed that his daughters, Robbie and JohVonnie, along with granddaughter Yashi Brown, visited him in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday.
