CNN, citing a source close to the family, is reporting the 89-year-old died in a Las Vegas hospital Wednesday, almost nine years to the day after his son Michael Jackson died.

Jackson, the father of 11, including music icons Michael and Janet, had been hospitalized for the last few weeks due to terminal pancreatic cancer. Prince Jackson, Michael Jackson's eldest son, posted a lovely picture of Joe with some of his grandchildren on Instagram. Joe Jackson is known for successfully managing the Jackson 5 as a group, along with the solo efforts of his Janet and Michael.

At the same time, he was also a controversial figure who wound up estranged from the kids - including King of Pop Michael Jackson - he set on the path to stardom.

U.S. news outlet TMZ was the first to report the news, stating that his wife, Katherine, was at his bedside when he died at 3:30AM in Los Angeles.

In later years, however, the public image of Joe Jackson was clouded by claims made by some of his children that he was an abusive father.

They were allowed to see him on Tuesday night, but it had appeared Joe had given verbal instructions preventing visitors and family members from seeing him and his medical records.

Ken Ehrlich, who produces the Grammys and other TV specials, said in a statement that Jackson "was the patriarch of one of music's true dynasties".

His wife Katherine, who served as a much-needed nurturing figure to the family´s 10 children, explained her husband by saying that beating children was commonplace for African American fathers of his age and background. "Terrified, I can't tell you I don't think to this day he realizes how scared, scared", said Jackson, who added that his father would only allow him to call him by his first name, not "daddy".

Father and son seemed to have reconciled for a time when Michael Jackson was on trial on child molestation charges. "We have been hurting". Joe Jackson also represented his daughters La Toya, Rebbie, and Janet, the latter of whom he asked to join the Jacksons' traveling nightclub show when she was just seven.
