Jermaine Jackson responds to media headlines about his father Joseph's welfare

Following the story of The Daily Mail (20 June 2018) and media headlines that Jermaine Jackson said that Jackson family patriarch Joseph is "dying", Jermaine released the following statement on 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. (1/2)
2: 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. (2/2)
