Janet Jackson led mourners at a private funeral service for Joe Jackson on Monday in California.

The patriarch of the American musical dynasty passed away last Wednesday aged 89 after losing his battle with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

His private memorial service was held at Forest Lawn in Glendale. His son and King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was laid to rest at the memorial park back in 2009.

Relatives were seen outside the service dressed in black attire.

The family announced a public ceremony would also be held in Los Angeles in honor of the late musical manager, but did not provide details on a specific place and time.

A family source told DailyMail.com last week the Jackson patriarch faded into unconsciousness last Tuesday and died the following day alongside his wife Katherine.

The source said Katherine decided to move Jackson into hospice care days prior, when his health drastically declined.

It seems Jackson had been ill for months but became worse over the two weeks before his death.
