Joe Jackson, the Jackson Family Patriarch, Dead at 89

The Jackson family patriarch died at age 89 after a battle with cancer.

But Jackson hinted at his impending death in a tweet Monday: "I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. Joe was a strong man who acknowledged his own imperfections and heroically delivered his sons and daughters from the steel mills of Gary, Indiana to worldwide pop superstardom", said John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the estate.

Joe's reported death comes just two days after the anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, who passed away on 25 June 2009.

Jackson, the father of 11, including music icons Michael and Janet, had been hospitalized for the last few weeks due to terminal pancreatic cancer.

But he was also a highly controversial figure. "He was very hard".

"And when I started playing, his mouth flew open!" Perkins, portrayed by Glover in pale white makeup and an extremely high-pitched voice, was clearly a spoof on post-surgery Michael Jackson.

Joe Jackson was portrayed on film by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs on the 1992 miniseries "The Jacksons: An American Dream", and by Frederic Tucker on the 2004 VH1 biopic "Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story". "You beat someone with a stick", he told the BBC's Louis Theroux in 2003.

Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and Jackie headlined the RockTellz & Cocktails series at Planet Hollywood in 2014.

But while Jackson is credited as the driving force behind the success, he also was reviled for his abrasive manner and revelations by his children that he was a physically and emotionally abusive father.

The rest of the Jackson 5 followed suit in 1983. "Everyone in the family, from Paris to Janet, is planning to see him", the insider said at the time.

But Jackson recovered from both illnesses, showing that despite his years, he was still tough.

The grandson of a slave, Joe Jackson was born in rural Arkansas to a similarly merciless father.

In the 1950s, he had tried to launch his own music career as a guitarist, but he came to realize the truly gifted musicians in his family were his children.

Jackson married his wife, Katherine, in 1949. And his son Brandon died at birth in 1957.
