Joe Jackson, Father of the Late Michael Jackson, Dies at 89: Report - News Today
Death,Joe Jackson,Michael Jackson,Music News,News,RIP Joe Jackson, the music manager and father of 11, died early Wednesday morning, TMZ reports. He was 89. The Jackson family patriarch had been battling terminal pancreatic cancer and was “not doing well” as of late, a source previously told PEOPLE. On June 21, son Jermaine told the Daily Mail, “He’s very, very frail, he doesn’t have long. The family needs to be by his bedside — that’s our only intention in his final days.” Just days later, Jackson appeared to share an emotional tweet hinting at his worsening health struggles. “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see,” read the caption on a photo of Jackson, in his trademark hat, silhouetted against sun rays. “The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.” However, his granddaughter Paris claimed that the message was in fact not written by the family head. “My grandfather did not tweet this,” she commented. “I’m not sure if he’s ever used this account.” Over the years, Jackson — who was born on July 26, 1928, in Fountain Hill, Arkansas — had a series of health problems. In November 2012, he recovered from a minor stroke at his Las Vegas home. Three years later, daughter Janet had to put rehearsals for her Unbreakable World Tour on hold when he suffered another stroke and heart arrhythmia in Brazil on his 87th birthday in July 2015. In May 2016, he was hospitalized due to a high fever and in June 2017, he was released from the hospital after a car accident in Las Vegas. Joe is survived by his wife Katherine and their children Maureen, 68, Jackie, 67, Tito, 64, Jermaine, 63, La Toya, 62, Marlon, 61, Randy, 56, and Janet, 52. Son Michael died from an apparent cardiac arrest at age 50 on June 25, 2009. Son Brandon died at birth in 1957. Joe was also the father of Joh’Vonnie Jackson, 43, the daughter of Cheryl Terrell, whom he had a 25-year-long affair with. Katherine filed for divorce twice but never went through with the separation. In 1963, Joe noticed his children’s musical talents after he discovered son Tito’s guitar talents. Soon after, Joe served as the manager for The Jackson Brothers, a band formed by sons Jackie, Tito and Jermaine. Then in 1965, Marlon and Michael joined the group and renamed themselves The Jackson 5 in 1966. Anchored by a 7-year-old Michael, The Jackson 5 found immediate success, becoming the first American group to have four singles land the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Soon after, Joe moved the entire family from Indiana to California. In 1968, Joe signed a Motown contract—without reading it—that gave the company ironclad control over everything recorded by The Jackson 5, a move that cost the family millions. Michael fired his father as manager in 1983. In addition, Joe was known as the stern patriarch who was physically and emotionally abusive. In her 1991 memoir, La Toya wrote that he abused her and terrorized her brothers, often pointing gu
Well at least he can't hurt real Mj anymore. Since that guy abuse in mj's, in his childhood. Mj has daddy issue, had no connection with his daddy. That explains why Mj marriage both failed. Like father like son. Mj dad lie cheated, on his own wife. Poor MJ mom was married to a bully.
At old age MJ dad changed when he got sick and died. But just because that guy was bully it doesn't mean real Mj has to be like him. Real MJ didn't want to be like him. Paris and the loser posers are just like that narrasstic man.
Did you know when MJ was a boy MJ was friends with Barry gordy and Mj dad was jealous because Mj so wanted his dad to be as nice as Barry gorey at motown, perhaps Mjs daddy should of treated him better.
I do so don't feel sorry for abusive. I see what going on that mean losers and everyone else is following the wrong example of mid dad bad behavior was also because his own dad did the same to him and that mean guy hated his job took his anger on his kids and wife and wanted to be bossy control his family. His kids married at a young age to escape from him. J5 kids lived in fear all there life.
Mj's dad was full of hate anger frozen heart didn't care how his kids felt when he beat them during the j5 era or how his wife felt a man with no compassion, or love in his heart. MJ's dad didn't know how to love.
People are not defined by there parents, they don't have to be like the parents. The point is just because a parent does wrong, doesn't mean people have become cones of there parents.
People should make the own choice full their own destiny have better behavior. I always felt sorry on how pool MJ has to put up with all that BS all his life. MJ you know something where more alike then you think.
Both your dad and my own dad was nice to us, but i understand you better so when you say have you see your childhood i know what you been through. But you don't have to be like him you can be better then that mean dad you had Mj. We are both free from the past.
No matter how many people want to discredit Joe and ridicule his raising of his kids we must look at the facts. Joe like all have shortcomings, however, he was a hard worker who put a roof over his family's head and food on the table all the while grooming and preparing his kids to become the most talented musical family we have ever seen..so, may Joe rest in peace and thank you for sharing your family with the world.
Joe was a good Father..he hung in there and raised all those kids..my Dad walked away..but I never stopped loving him. Every man is different..my Pops couldn't handle six kids..he was great with me his first. Anyway Joe hung in there. I admire this man..hate he met the Devil who allowed him to cheat on Katherine who had a child and broke up a family. I know Joe regrets that...bless u Joe
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
