A rep for the Jackson family is addressing a recent report claiming Katherine Jackson suffered a “sudden and devastating” stroke last weekend.

RadarOnline posted the original article, claiming the 87-year-old Jackson family matriarch, “has the family around her 24/7 since the stroke.” Fortunately, there’s no truth to the rumor, according to longtime Jackson family publicist and friend Steve Manning.

“The story is bullsh*t. Mrs. Jackson is fine. She’s with (daughter) Rebbie. I don’t know where they get this fake news,” Manning told the New York Daily News.



One of Jackson’s nine children, who preferred to speak anonymously, also dispelled the lie, saying, “It’s not true, It’s a rumor. She’s fine.”
