Joe Jackson, the 89-year-old patriarch of the iconic Jackson family, has been hospitalized with terminal cancer.

TMZ reports:

Family sources tell us, Joe has been battling the illness for some time, but it is at the end stages.

We’re told his wife, Katherine, has been at his bedside recently. We’re also told some of Joe’s children and grandchildren have also made the trip to the hospital.

Joe has had his share of health challenges throughout his life.

He’s had cancer for quite some time, but he is reportedly in the final stages.

My prayers to Joe and his family.
