Jackson 5 patriarch Joe Jackson dead at 89

Joe Jackson

According to USA media reports, Jackson died at 3.30 am in Los Angeles.

Fox News reports Joe Jackson was hospitalized last week and was battling terminal cancer.

Despite reports of extramarital affairs over the years and more recent reports that Joe Jackson was estranged from wife Katherine, she repeatedly denied that they were separated. In a 2003 BBC interview that attracted widespread attention, he said, "I whipped [Michael] with a switch and a belt...[but] I never beat him".

In 1979, Michael broke from the group - as well as his father's management - and went to even greater acclaim with the landmark albums "Off the Wall" and "Thriller".

The health scare did not stop there as he also suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday back in 2015.

By 1969, they had signed to Motown, when their bubble gum soul-pop hybrid would create Beatle-like mania, with hits including "I Want You Back", "ABC" and "I'll Be There".

Singer Usher performs under a giant photo of Michael Jackson with his parents Katherine and Joe Jackson at a memorial service for the music legend at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in July 2009.

"I just remember hearing my mother scream, 'Joe you're gonna kill him, you're gonna kill him, stop it, '" Michael recalled. "'He would know how to get me out of this, '" Joe Jackson said. Joe Jackson allegedly exerted stifling control over their careers that Michael and some of his siblings claimed included physical as well as mental abuse. His children told stories about their father being hard on them growing up.

Representatives for family members did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but Jackson himself hinted at his impending death in a tweet two days ago.

He also left behind a daughter Joh'Vonnie Jackson, who he had with Cheryl Terrell.
