Joe Jackson Is On His 'Deathbed' After Being Hospitalized With Terminal Cancer

Celebrity website TMZ.com, citing family sources, reported that Jackson, 89, has terminal cancer and was in the end stages of life.

The famous patriarch of the Jackson family - and the father of Michael Jackson and his siblings - is said to be suffering an undisclosed terminal illness. His wife and Jackson family matriarch, Katherine Jackson, has recently remained by his side during his hospital stay as other family members like children and grandchildren are en route to him.

Dad of 11 Joe's handlers allegedly barred senior family members from visiting him, leading to intense discussions for four days with his confused sons and daughters.

The 63-year-old added, "He's very very frail, he doesn't have long". The family needs to be by his bedside.

It's unclear how much time the Jackson Five architect has left, but doctors say say the cancer can't be treated.

'We were not being told where he was and couldn't get the full picture.


Joe Jackson orchestrated the rise and world domination of The Jackson 5, including the introduction of the late Michael Jackson, during the 1970s. At the time, it was reported that Jackson had also suffered three previous strokes, including one three years prior to his Brazil hospitalization. "We have been hurting", Jermaine told the Mail.

The Metro UK reports that doctors weren't easy to share details of Joe's well being, even to son Jermaine.

In 2017 he and daughter Janet Jackson were involved in a vehicle accident in Las Vegas Strip.

One family member said: 'If it's true there was verbal instructions from Joseph, we'd like to know how that instruction was obtained.
