Ailing Katherine Jackson is near death and living apart from her kids after she was removed from the family compound to be in the constant care of "private doctors," RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
The 88-year-old family matriarch was rushed to the hospital with heart attack-like symptoms in early January.
“Because Katherine is so frail, she has a doctor by her side almost all the time, so he was on hand to get her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” an insider revealed.
“She has extremely high blood pressure and a heart rhythm disorder and was also having breathing problems.”
With moneybags Katherine on her deathbed, sources said Jackson family members are jockeying for their slice of the pie, as she was a main inheritor of the “Thriller” singer’s estate after he died in 2009.
