Quincy Jones Wins Lawsuit Against Michael Jackson’s Estate, Awarded $9.4M

Quincy Jones is getting his dough. The iconic musician and composer has won his lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s and has been awarded a cool $9.4M. 

The New York Times reports that a Los Angeles jury agreed that Jones has been shortchanged for the use of music he produced in the posthumous Jackson films This Is It and a pair Cirque du Soleil shows.

Interestingly, Jones filed the lawsuit against MJ’s estate in 2013, claiming that he was owed $30M. The estate countered that he was owed only $392,000 because of an accounting error.

This is where we point out that Thriller, which Jones produced, is the first album to sell 30 million copies. Jones also produced Off The Wall.

“This lawsuit was never about Michael,” said Jones via a statement. “It was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created.”

Someone tell Lil Wayne to holla at Q’s lawyers.
