Joe Jackson, the father of the late pop star, Michael Jackson has died.
According to TMZ, the elder Jackson died two days after the ninth anniversary of his megastar son, Michael, who died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.
Family sources told the entertainment news outlet that Joe passed away at 3:30 AM on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
It was gathered that Joe was hospitalised in June with terminal cancer.
“Joe had been battling health problems for some time now. He was hospitalised back in 2016 after coming down with a high fever. But, he bounced back not long after and was seen partying in Vegas.
“His health was also fragile after a stroke and three heart attacks back in 2015. Doctors implanted a pacemaker,” the report read.
Joe had 10 kids with Katherine, his wife of more than 60 years.
