Katherine Jackson — Michael Jackson’s 85-year-old mother — is battling “for her life” against a mystery illness!
Friends and family fear the matriarch might be suffering from cancer or her lifelong battle with the effects of polio, a family insider said. Katherine had polio as a child.
Traditional medicine hasn’t worked, “and she’s in trouble,” the spy claimed.
“We are trying to get alternative, natural healing for her. Everyone is horrified things have gotten so much worse.”
An unsuccessful billion-dollar lawsuit Katherine pursued against concert promoter AEG Live claiming negligence in the King of Pop’s death has also taken a toll on her health, The National ENQUIRER reported in its March 2 edition.
While a rep told The ENQUIRER Katherine is in “amazing health for an 85-year-old woman,” insiders said she hasn’t been herself since Michael’s death. She hardly smiles or laughs anymore, sources added.
“She doesn’t let anyone in,” an insider said. “She gazes about as if she’s looking for Michael, wishing that when the phone rings, it’s him.”
Katherine’s doctors are sworn to secrecy, and family members don’t know how to determine what’s wrong with her.
