In World

Joe Jackson, the father of late Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson and the mastermind behind The Jackson 5, has died at age 89. Carlos Keyes, representative for Jackson’s son, Tito Jackson, confirmed Joe Jackson’s death. The legendary stage parent and music manager was reportedly battling terminal cancer.

A Jackson family source told “Entertainment Tonight” that the family’s patriarch was hospitalized with terminal cancer Friday in Las Vegas. The source also said that he had been battling cancer for some time, with doctors telling the family that he had a limited amount of time left to live, and that the illness was untreatable.

His Twitter account posted a cryptic tweet Sunday that said, “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.”
