Joe Jackson dies at age of 89

Joe Jackson dies at age of 89

Joe Jackson, legendary father of the Jackson Family, on the Soul Train Awards 2017 red carpet at The Orleans in Las Vegas, Nov. 5, 2017.

Joe Jackson arrives at the 2018 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party on Sunday, March 4, 2018, in West Hollywood, Calif. Jackson died Wednesday, June 27, 2018.

Joe was the manager of his sons' musical group The Jackson 5, which included Michael Jackson. He became a controversial figure when Michael Jackson accused his father of physical and emotional abuse in 1993.

Jackson's son, Jermaine Jackson, echoed this report, letting the public know that the Jackson family wanted to spend time with Joe in the days leading up to his death.

Piers Morgan has tweeted: "A tough, uncompromising, charming & complex man who drove his children from the mean, poor streets of Gary, Indiana to global stardom". Jackson later guided the careers of Michael and sister Janet Jackson when they embarked on solo careers.

Jackson would go on to enlist almost all of his children as performers at various times. After a pair of releases on the local Steeltown label, the Detroit-based indie pop/R&B superpower Motown - which had initially passed on the act - signed the Jackson 5 to a contract in 1968. Just a look would scare you.There's been times when he'd come to see me, and I would get sick. As Jermaine told The Daily Mail, certain family members were barred from visiting Joe when he was initially hospitalized.

Randy Jackson Jr., son of Jackson brother Randy, tweeted this morning, "RIP to the king that made everything possible!"

Saudi Struggles For Gulf Oil Producers' Support Ahead Of OPEC Meeting
Saudi Arabia's oil minister said the OPEC ministers will discuss a proposal to increase output by about 1 million barrels per day. But in practice it would mean a much smaller boost of less than a 10th of that amount, effectively from Saudi Arabia.

Joe Jackson, born in Alabama on July 26, 1928, was the eldest of six children of Samuel and Chrystal Jackson.

Jackson himself even addressed his methods several times, such as when he told Oprah that he beat his children with a strap and doesn't regret it because "it kept them out of jail and kept them right".

"This man is and always will be an example or sheer willpower and dedication", Michael Jackson's son wrote alongside a photo with Joe.

By 2005, no longer involved in his children's careers, Joseph Jackson had launched a boot camp for aspiring hip-hop artists, promoting lyrics without vulgarity and sponsoring competitions for young artists from across the country. "I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world".

Jackson stood by his son during his molestation trial. The children all eventually severed their management ties with their father but Janet paid tribute at the Radio Disney Music Awards last week, saying her "incredible father" had driven her "to be the best I can".

A year ago he said he was "truly sorry" for the way he treated them.

Michael Jackson died at age 50 in his rented house in the Holmby Hills district of Los Angeles.
