Michael Jackson’s children already endured one tragic loss in their life, when the King of Pop passed away on June 25, 2009.
A source said in a new report what it would mean for Prince Jackson, 18, Paris Jackson, 17, and Blanket Jackson, 13 — if their grandfather, Joe Jackson, loses his current health battle.

"For Paris, Prince and Blanket, the possibility of losing Joe right now is horrific," the insider told Radar Online. “Paris is finally doing well and has overcome so much, but she is still very, very fragile.”
Joe, 87, suffered a stroke while in Brazil celebrating his birthday and rushed to the intensive care unit in a San Paulo hospital, where he proceeded to suffer three heart attacks. It was believed as of Wednesday the Jackson patriarch was “on the verge of death.”
"Paris is Joe's baby and she is his heart. She is the youngest of the female Jacksons and she is super close with her granddaddy,” the source continued.

Joe also helped Prince get back on track, and reportedly became a “father figure” again for his siblings — especially his younger brother, Blanket.
“Everyone is really worried about him because it seems he is not handling Michael’s death easily already, so one can only imagine how he would handle Joe’s death.”
Our thoughts are with the Jackson family during this time.
