TMZ is reporting that Joe Jackson is being hospitalized for terminal cancer. As a result, his family has rushed to his bedside, as the end seems to be near. 

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

Doctors have no idea how much longer Joe has. But, it doesn't look like it's a very long time. They've spoken to the Jackson family members and told them that Joe's cancer can no longer be treated. 

As many of us already know, Joe was the force behind The Jackson 5's success. The super strict father pushed the band with an heavy hand, which would propel the members into superstardom, especially the most powerful celebrity to ever walk the earth, the great late Michael Jackson
