Joe Jackson, who has been hospitalized as a result of a terminal cancer has reportedly spoken out on the illness, which he described in an heartfelt post on his twitter handle, as a reflective period of his life.
“I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes,” he wrote on Twitter.
This he penned down on Sunday after the 89 year old was hospitalized on Friday in Las Vegas with terminal cancer.
A family source was quoted to have revealed that Jackson had been battling with the illness for some time and doctors have confirmed that he has limited time to live because the cancer cannot be treated.
Rumors of death had remain in the air after he was reportedly hospitalized last year due to high fever during a routine check up.
“The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” he wrote in a note, titled “I Am 100% Alive,” on his website. “Please ignore all the stupid false rumors from people who seem to find humor in such topics.”
