Janet Jackson thanked her father while accepting an award over the weekend as reports swirl that he is seriously ill.
Variety reported last week that Jackson family patriarch, Joe Jackson, is in the final stages of terminal cancer.
The younger Jackson paid tribute to her father as she received the Radio Disney Music Awards first-ever Impact Award.
“My mother nourished me with the most extravagant love imaginable,” she said. “My father, my incredible father drove me to be the best I can. My siblings set an incredibly high standard, a high bar for artistic excellence.”
A tweet from Joe Jackson’s official Twitter account caused more speculation about his health.
