CelebNHealth247.com has received word that Joe Jackson, 89, has been hospitalized with terminal cancer and is near death, according to multiple reports.

According to TMZ, his wife Katherine and some of his 11 children and grandchildren have flown into Las Vegas to be by Joe Jackson‘s side. Jackson’s famous brood includes Randy Jackson, Janet Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Jermaine Jackson and more.

It has been confirmed that Joe Jackson has been hospitalized with a terminal stage of cancer and doctors do not believe that there is very much time left. Joe’s cancer, while unspecified, has been deemed inoperable and cannot be treated by other means.

Mr Jackson has been fighting the disease for several years.

Jermaine told the Daily Mail Wednesday he and his siblings were struggling to get information on their father’s condition. According to the report, Jermaine said that the family has “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.”

After the site ran the story, Jermaine is now defending what he stated via Twitter:

On the new story re Joseph. I’d like to be clear: I’ve no problem speaking up when it comes to the welfare of this family, but a journalist called me with information he clearly already had about my father. I confirmed certain details but “revealed” nothing.

He continued in a second tweet:

My father’s health is not good, but “dying” is a harsh word chosen by headline writers, not me. For however long he has left, my mother, siblings, and relatives want to be with him, without hindrance.
