Lauded for managing the group's emergence, Joe Jackson's reputation suffered after stories emerged in the 1980s of his alleged abusive treatment of his kids, including allegations made by Michael which were later denied by Joe and Katherine Jackson, the children's mother. Joe was also the father of Joh'Vonnie Jackson, the daughter of Cheryl Terrell, whom he had a 25-year-long affair with. "They're hollering, 'Dad, Dad, Dad, ' you know, and it gets to be - it sounds kind of amusing to me". Soon, he brought Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael together to become the Jackson 5.

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

His son Jermaine revealed that people around the father-of-eleven prevented the family from seeing him, saying: "No one knew what was going on - we shouldn't have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this.We have been hurting".

Jackson's granddaughter, Paris, tweeted about the tweet from her official account.

Joe Jackson died on Wednesday morning, TMZ reported.
