A few years ago it was reported that 89-year-old Joe Jackson, patriarch of the Jackson Family dynasty of entertainers and Tito, was starting to feel his years. Joe had checked into a Brazilian hospital after suffering a stroke, where he then suffered three heart attacks. And then Joe got better, but that was short lived. According to TMZ, Joe Jackson is currently in the hospital with a terminal case of cancer.
Sources say that Katherine Jackson has been by his side recently. Some of Joe’s kids and grandkids have made a visit. Doctors have reportedly been real with the Jackson family about Joe’s diagnosis. Sources don’t know how much time he’s been given, but they say Joe’s cancer can’t be treated and is in the final stages. Because TMZ’s source doesn’t appear to know that much about the details of the situation, that leads me to believe their source clearly isn’t the family gossip Randy Jackson.
This is the kind of news that will either make you want to send a Get Well Soon card or…whatever the opposite of a Get Well Soon card might be. Joe Jackson is either an entertainment legend or a Nightmare Father Hall of Famer, or both. But I’m sure Joe Jackson isn’t letting cancer mess with his pimp game. I bet he’s already wrangled a bunch of male nurses into a singing group called Joe Jackson’s Oncology Floor Four.
