Though it is not confirmed, speculations are in the air that Joe Jackson is battling terminal pancreatic cancer. Daughter, Janet Jackson, paid tribute to her father while receiving The Impact Award at the Radio Disney Awards Sunday night. Janet was recognized for her positive impacts, but responded with, “…but if I have been fortunate enough to impact others, it is only because I, myself, have been greatly impacted by positive people in my life. My father- my incredible father- drove me to be the best that I can.”

A cryptic message was tweeted from his Twitter account on Sunday which has us thinking that the reports of his battle are true. The tweet wrote, “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see,” and “The sun rises when the time comes whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.” Granddaughter, Paris Jackson, was not happy with the tweet. She took to social media claiming that Joe Jackson did not tweet that, saying, “This is a beautiful tweet, though it upsets me to see whoever is in charge of this account taking advantage of it.”
