The latest person to pitch up to the Jackson estate, writ in hand, is Quincy 'you would have hoped that he was above this sort of thing' Jones, who reckons he's being diddled out of his due:
He says the singer's estate and Sony Music Entertainment improperly re-edited songs to deprive him of royalties and production fees.The Jackson estate are trying to wave it away:
Mr Jones says they also broke an agreement giving him the right to remix master recordings for albums released after Jackson's death in 2009.
"To the best of its knowledge, Mr Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael," a statement said.Interesting gambit. "He's been earning money for the work he actually did over three and a half decades; now it's time for us to earn money from something we weren't even involved in for the next four", in short.
Jones is looking for six million quid, or thereabouts. No lawyers at all could be reached for comment, as they were all out shopping for speedboats and gold-encrusted everythings.
