Jackson was the tough as nails and allegedly abusive father and manager of the most iconic American family musical group in history, the hit-making Jackson 5, who represented Motown Records.

In 2015, Jackson suffered a stroke, but despite bouts of ill health he continued to make appearances at celebrity events around the world.
His granddaughter, Paris Jackson, subsequently assured fans that Joe never used the account or posted the tweet. "The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes".
His son Jermaine revealed that people around the father-of-eleven prevented the family from seeing him, saying: "No one knew what was going on - we shouldn't have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this.We have been hurting. Terrified, I can't tell you I don't think to this day he realizes how scared, scared", saidJackson, who added that his father would only allow him to call him by his first name, not "daddy".
Prince Jackson is mourning the death of his grandfather, Joe Jackson. The pair had a daughter, his 11th child, Joh'Vonnie, who is now 43, but Jackson remained married to Katherine all along. They moved into into a home on Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana, the following year, where they welcomed their first of 10 children, Maureen "Rebbie" Jackson.
According to family lore, Jackson´s sons would sneak into his closet when Joe Jackson was working and bring out his guitar.
He launched a group in 1962 that featured his three eldest sons - Jackie, Tito and Jermaine - and two neighbors.

The move came as part of Spotify's attempt to condemn artists who break a "hate content and hateful conduct" policy. Cole called him an "enormous talent" with "limitless potential". "God bless his family, friends and fans".
Joe Jackson helped form and manage the Jackson 5 which consisted of Jermaine, Jackie, TitoMarlon and Michael.
In 1997, the Jackson 5 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after selling more than 100 million records. His father - Samuel Jackson - was a university professor and, according to Joe, a very strict and domineering man. Youngest daughter Janet also became a hugely successful recording artist.
Daughter Janet Jackson is scheduled to headline this year's Essence Festival in New Orleans in early July.
Joe Jackson wanted to be a music star but it didn't work out for him.
"You had all those kids running hollering around", Jackson said.
Speaking of, Joe referenced this toughness he possessed in a video dedicated to his grandson Blanket, when he advised him to 'Be like me: Be tough, in a good way, and you'll live a long time'. "This was the main thing".
Jackson admitted that he disciplined his children physically but said he had no regrets. He made no apologies when I interviewed him in 2013: "'I did what I had to do to give them a better life'". "I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world".
"We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson's passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs".
The couple split a few times and lived apart for decades, but they reportedly never divorced.
Joe was left out of the "Thriller" singer's will when he died aged 50 in 2009. Michael also said his father would taunt him about his "fat nose", and later told Winfrey he was so afraid of his father that he would sometimes vomit when he saw him. Joe is very weak and getting significantly weaker.
