Quincy Jones is suing the Michael Jackson estate. He claims that the late singer’s estate and Sony Music Entertainment improperly re-edited songs which deprived him of royalties and production fees. Jones produced some of Jackson’s top discs including Off the Wall and Thriller.
Jones also says they broke an agreement giving him the right to remix master recordings for albums released after Jackson’s death in 2009.
As reported by BBC, the Jackson estate said that it was saddened by the lawsuit.
“To the best of its knowledge, Mr Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael,” a statement said.
Quincy Jones’s lawsuit is seeking at least $10m from the singer’s estate and Sony.
Is this greed or a true case?
