Reports from US news agencies reveal that legendary music producer QUINCY JONES is all set to sue the estate of MICHAEL JACKSON for millions of dollars. Reports say that Jones claims that both Jacko’s estate and Sony Music “improperly re-edited songs to deprive him of royalties and producers fees”. He also says that they broke an agreement giving him the right to remix master recordings for albums released after Jackson’s death in 2009.
For their part, the Jackson estate said that it was saddened by the lawsuit. A spokesperson said – “To the best of our knowledge, Mr Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael.”
Jones’s lawsuit is seeking at least $10m (£6m) from the singer’s estate and Sony. Knowing the way American lawyers work, watch this one run and run.
