TMZ reports that Jackson passed away around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday in Los Angeles while surrounded by his wife, Katherine, and some of his children and grandchildren.

Variety reported last week that Jackson is in the final stages of terminal cancer.

Jermaine told the Daily Mail June 20 that he and his siblings were struggling to get information on their father's condition. Joe was married to wife Katherine since 1949. He, with a little help from Diana Ross, engineered the careers of The Jackson 5, and then Michael and Janet Jackson as solo artists.

A tweet from Joe Jackson's official Twitter account caused more speculation about his health.

Michael then explained just how afraid he was of the man by stating: 'Like there's been times when he'd come to see me, I'd get sick, I'd start to regurgitate'.

Although several of his children, including son, Michael, have said that their father was abusive and strict, Joe Jackson often denied the allegations.

The couple had 10 children: Maureen, 68, Jackie, 67, Tito, 64, Jermaine, 63, La Toya, 62, Marlon, 61, Randy, 56, and Janet, 52. "#RIP Joe Jackson", La Toya, 62, wrote along with a video of her and her late father having lunch together.

In the 1960s Jackson created a musical act featuring five of his sons, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael.

"I will always love you!", she wrote.

Jackson helmed a family of iconic American entertainers, launching them to stratospheric heights of stardom, but his legacy was marred by repeated charges of abuse that strained and ended his relationships with the children he raised in the spotlight.

Jackson's granddaughter, Paris, tweeted about the tweet from her official account. But I didn't care too much about what they called me, just as long as they (were) able to listen to me and what I had to tell them, you know, in order to make their lives successful. "We shouldn't have to beg, plead and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this". The group went on to sign with Motown Records, and they quickly scored four No. 1 singles with "I Want You Back", "ABC", "I'll Be There", and "The Love You Save".

The couple split a few times and lived apart for decades, but they reportedly never divorced. Jackson also had a daughter out of wedlock. "And they treated everybody right". 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.
