He died after battling terminal cancer

Joe Jackson, the father of late Michael Jackson has died today at the age of 89 after battling terminal cancer.

TMZ reports the patriarch passed away at 3:30 AM Wednesday morning in LA.

“He doesn’t have long. The family needs to be by his bedside – that’s our only intention in his final days,” he said.
