Earlier this year, Joe dropped his wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.

The showbiz patriarch filed a request with a Los Angeles court asking for his 2010 suit against the doctor - who was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop in November 2011 - to be dismissed without prejudice.

In the suit, Joe had alleged Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and emergency room staff who tried to save Michael's life on the day he died in June 2009.

Joe claimed Murray wrongfully provided the Propofol and a "polypharmacy" of other drugs to his son just before he died and alleged the doctor asked a security guard to clean the room in which Michael died of medication before police arrived at the Los Angeles mansion.

Joe has had a difficult relationship with his children, who he also used to manage, with Michael claiming his father physically and emotionally abused him when he was younger.
