Michael Jackson's mother Katherine's health has deteriorated so much after her son's death that she is being monitored round the clock by private nurses, it has emerged. She had suffered a stroke four years ago apart from being a diabetic and having high blood pressure. "She now requires oxygen and has been so weak since Michael died she can barely walk unaided," the Daily Express quoted a close source as saying.
The Jackson family matriarch is to attend Los Angeles Superior Court where she will come to know her right, if she can legally challenge her son's 2002 will.
However, it seems to be taking a toll on her.
The insider added: "This pressure is tearing her apart physically and emotionally. "At her age and in her fragile state of health, more exertion could trigger another stroke. She has full time nursing care but the strain is visibly taking its toll." Meanwhile, she won permanent legal custody of her grandchildren Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Blanket, after her lawyers agreed a deal which allows Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe visitation rights.
