Tributes For Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson’s loved ones have paid tribute to the famous family’s patriarch online in the wake of his death on Wednesday.

The 89-year-old, who was responsible for the rise of the Jackson 5 in the 1960s and 1970s, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer, and his daughter La Toya Jackson was among the first to honour his memory on Twitter.

“I will always love you!” she shared. “You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared. #RIP Joe Jackson”.

Grandson Randy Jackson Jr. shared an old photo of Joe posing beside a framed record plaque for his son Michael Jackson’s classic 1979 album Off the Wall, and captioned it, “RIP to the king that made everything possible!!! I love you grandpa.”

Meanwhile, Tito Jackson’s son Taj reached out to fans for sending their condolences.

“We feel all the love and support from you guys and are extremely thankful,” he wrote.

The 3T singer then followed up the post with another message aimed at Twitter trolls, who didn’t hold back in criticising Joe for his allegedly abusive parenting techniques, which included frequent beatings, after hearing of his death.

“Disgusted by some of the comments I’m reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn’t even know him,” Taj Jackson fired back. “Please don’t just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press. Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness.”

Joe was also remembered by the co-executors of Michael’s estate, John McClain and John Branca.

“We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson’s passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Katherine Jackson (Joe’s estranged wife) and the family,” reads a statement issued to Us Weekly by a representative for the pair.

“Joe was a strong man who acknowledged his own imperfections and heroically delivered his sons and daughters from the steel mills of Gary, Indiana, to worldwide pop superstardom… We had developed a warm relationship with Joe in recent years and will miss him tremendously.”
