Michael Jackson's Dad, Dies Of Cancer



 Joe Jackson — the patriarch of the Jackson family — has died at the age of 89.

He passed away at 3:30 AM on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Joe was hospitalised in June with terminal cancer. His family had been flocking to his bedside since. His wife, Katherine, had been at his bedside as were some of Joe’s children and grandchildren, TMZ reported.

Joe, who suffers from diabetes, had gone through a number of health scares in recent years.
He had a stroke in Brazil in 2015 which left him temporarily blind and was treated in hospital a year later with a high fever after falling ill during a routine check-up, it was claimed.

Last weekend, Jackson’s Twitter account shared a photo of him looking at the sunset, suggesting he’s at peace with his mortality.

He captioned it: “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.”

Taj Jackson, the grandson of Joe, said the hearts of his “entire family” are in pain following the death of the patriarch.

He tweeted: “Disgusted by some of the comments I’m reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn’t even know him. Please don’t just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press.
“Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness. #ripthehawk.”
