LOS ANGELES – Joe Jackson is set to be honoured in two memorial services on Monday, one private and one public.

The Jackson family patriarch - who is best known for handling the careers of his kids including late son and music legend Michael Jackson - passed away last week at the age of 89 after a battle with cancer.

According to Entertainment Tonight, both services will take place on Monday and both will be held in Los Angeles, whilst one will be a public memorial, and the other will be a more intimate private service for family and friends of the late talent manager.

As of the time of writing, the exact times and locations for each service have not yet been disclosed.

Since Joe's passing, several of his family members have taken to social media to pay tribute to the star.

His granddaughter Paris Jackson - whose father was the late Michael - mourned his loss when she revealed she had made him "promise" to visit her as a ghost in the moments before he passed away.

Whilst her brother Prince Jackson praised Joe as "an example of sheer willpower".

The retired talent manager had been in hospital for some time, with his wife Katherine and some of his children and grandchildren by his side, and his passing was not unexpected as it was revealed hours before his death that he was "too weak" to even return to his Las Vegas home to live out his final days.

A source said: "He had planned to go to his home in Vegas to live out his final days, but that has not happened. Joe is very weak and getting significantly weaker. It's now a waiting game, and the end could come at any time."
