AceShowbiz - Katherine Jackson's large family has gathered around her to offer their support after she suffered a stroke last week. The Jackson matriarch has been resting and recovering at home following the sudden stroke with her family taking care of her, according to Radar Online.
Apparently the 87-year-old's condition is pretty bad as her family has been worrying about her. It's particularly "hard" for granddaughter Paris Jackson, the daughter of Michael Jackson, who rushed home from Coachella to be by her side after learning of the news.
"The family has all gathered around her to give her support," says a so-called insider. "But she is the one that is usually in the best shape and she takes care of everyone, so it is really mentally hard on her." The source adds, "The children and the grandchildren are there. The kids are not leaving her side. She has the family around her 24/7 since the stroke."
Katherine was reportedly treated at a San Fernando Valley medical facility after suffering a stroke last week. Although she's already out of the hospital and resting at home, she is having trouble speaking and has poor movement on the left side of her body.
"It's really bad, and very sudden," the source goes on sharing. "Joe [Katherine's husband] has a team of nurses and Katherine now has in-home nurses. There are additional nurses now and they are both being cared for in their home."
A source says this is not the first time Katherine has suffered a stroke, alluding to her health concerns that are plaguing the matriarch in the last few years.
Katherine and her partner Joe tied the knot back in 1949. They have ten children together, including the late Michael Jackson and singer Janet Jackson.
