Michael Jackson's Estate Responds To Joe's Death

Fans Commemorate Michael Jackson's Birthday

After being hospitalized earlier this month for terminal pancreatic cancer, the Jackson family patriarch died Wednesday morning, TMZ reported.

Family sources tell the online celebrity and entertainment news outlet that Joe passed away at 3:30 AM on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Joe and Katherine tied the knot in 1949 and had 11 children together, one of whom died soon after birth.

Despite periods of estrangement from some of his 10 children, family members had been at his bedside in his last few days, his grand daughter Paris said.

In an interview with ABC News in 2009, Katherine Jackson recalled how she felt when she met Joe the first time.

The success of The Jackson 5 led to Michael Jackson going solo, becoming such a major star that he was later dubbed the King of Pop.

In a June 24 tweet, Jackson himself talked about his end of days, writing "I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see".

Speaking of, Joe referenced this toughness he possessed in a video dedicated to his grandson Blanket, when he advised him to 'Be like me: Be tough, in a good way, and you'll live a long time'.




The Jackson family was often riven by legal battles, jealousies, money disputes, Joe's philandering and unproven allegations of child molestation against Michael.

Joe was father to Rebbie Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson.

'I love my father but I don't know him, ' responded Michael. He eventually replaced the neighbors with brothers Michael and Marlon, and the Jackson Five went professional in 1966.

"I will always love you!"

He later tweeted and posted on his website to say he was out of the hospital, back home and feeling fine.

The Jackson 5 played several dates at the old MGM Grand, now Bally's, in 1974. RIP JOE JACKSON and thank you for giving us the many gifts of talent from your family, not just to our community on a whole.but to the ENTIRE WORLD! "My parents were a lot more lenient with [me and Randy Jackson, the youngest brother], and I thought they were very strict".

By the time they were adults, most of the Jackson siblings had dismissed him as their manager; Michael and Joseph's relationship was famously fractured. Michael also said his father would taunt him about his "fat nose", and later told Winfrey he was so afraid of his father that he would sometimes vomit when he saw him. "I'm glad I was tough because look what I came out with", he told CNN in 2013.
