Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the iconic Jackson family, has died at the age of 89.

Entertainment sites TMZ and ET said Jackson died Wednesday morning in Los Angeles after a battle with cancer.

Jackson had been ailing for months, but took a turn for the worse in the past two weeks according to sources close to the family. His wife, Katherine, had been at his bedside as were some of Joe's children and grandchildren.

In a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael said his father had beaten him. "I'm glad I was tough because look what I came out with", he told CNN in 2013.

Joe agreed to it but, far from apologising, he said his methods made his kids successful and kept them out of jail.
