Odd! Michael Jackson’s father Joe spent his 86th birthday visiting Barcelona’s Camp Nou

Barcelona have engaged in a bizarre bit of publicity after releasing a video showing Joe Jackson, manager of the Jackson 5, spending his 86th birthday at the Camp Nou.

On a typically sunny day in Catalonia, Jackson was clad in a trademark heavy suit and fedora.

Though many people have fond memories of Michael, Janet and the other Jackson kids’ music, Joe acquired a horrific reputation for being an abusive father; forcing his children to perform and often resorting to physically beating them.

It’s odd that a club of Barcelona’s stature would go out of their way to be associated with him but you can watch the video below.
