Producer Quincy Jones Sues Michael Jackson's Estate for $10 Million

The Associated Press reports that Quincy Jones is suing Michael Jackson's estate and Sony Music Entertainment for at least $10 million.

Jackson's estate responded in a statement: "To the best of its knowledge, Mr. Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael."

Jones' lawsuit claims that Jackson's estate and Sony Music "improperly re-edited songs to deprive him of royalties and production fees". These songs include "Billie Jean", "Thriller" and "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough".

Jones is also citing Jackson's music used in the movie This Is it -- he says he should have been credited as a producer for the music used in the film. He also has qualms with songs used as part of two Cirque du Soleil shows.

Jones is a producer, conductor, composer and trumpet player with 27 GRAMMY awards, including a GRAMMY Legend Award in 1991. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year. Jones worked with Jackson on three of his best-selling solo albums: "Off the Wall", "Thriller" and "Bad".
