As Joe’s family tried to be by his bedside, they were barred from visiting him and could not gain any medical information about his health condition. For days, they didn't know what was going on. As the talent manager’s son Jermaine said:

No one knew what was going on - we shouldn't have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this.

Finally, Joe’s children, grandchildren, and wife were granted access to him. Reportedly, it was Jackson himself who made instructions of not allowing any visitors to see him, but no one knows the reason why.
