Joe Jackson Dies at 89 After Battle With Pancreatic Cancer

Joe Jackson Dies at 89 After Battle With Pancreatic Cancer

Jackson had been battling pancreatic cancer, and his condition worsened last week.

On 24 June, Joe Jackson appeared to tweet from his personal account: "I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see".

"To pull off what he pulled off, how he pulled it off, where he comes from, where his family was born from, I think my father is one of the greatest men that ever lived", Tito said.

After his death, Rev Jesse Jackson paid tribute, tweeting: "Joe Jackson, brother beloved, patriarch & creator of one of the most talented American musical dynasties". Joe was married to wife Katherine since 1949.

Marlon's twin, Brandon, died soon after birth.

Later in life, however - after "Jackson Mania" and Saturday morning cartoons, solo careers and meet-and-greets with the Queen of England - a darker public picture of the Jackson family's internal life was slowly revealed.

Jackson's first experience with the music business was in the '50s, when he sang and played guitar with the Chicago-based blues band the Falcons.

In 1969, Jackson negotiated a deal for the quintet with Motown.

His fourth child, Jermaine, told the Daily Mail before Jackson's death that his father had attempted to prevent visits from his family, withholding information about his location and diagnosis. Youngest daughter Janet also became a hugely successful recording artist.

During the 1980s, daughters LaToya, Janet and Rebbie had their own musical projects.

Joe, his wife Katherine and several of the Jackson siblings denied the claims, though Joe Jackson did admit to whipping his children with a belt as punishment, though such force was, when discussed, always characterised as consistent with the discipline standards of the time.

"You had all those kids running hollering around", Jackson said.

He referenced that toughness recently when he shared some advice for grandson Blanket Jackson in a heartfelt video: "Be like me: Be tough, in a good way, and you'll live a long time". "This was the main thing".

Piers Morgan has tweeted: "A tough, uncompromising, charming & complex man who drove his children from the mean, poor streets of Gary, Indiana to global stardom". "I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world. It kept them out of jail and kept them right".

Katherine described his alleged extramarital affairs in the book My Family, The Jacksons. In 1979, Michael fired his father as his manager and took control of his career himself. 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 can't stand them".

"My mother nourished me with the most extravagant love imaginable", she said.
