Quincy Jones Awarded $9.4 Million From Michael Jackson Estate After Royalties Dispute

Quincy Jones was awarded $9.4 million on Wednesday (July 26) following a dispute with the late Michael Jackson‘s estate regarding unpaid music royalties.

The 84-year-old record producer says he was underpaid for music used in Michael’s documentary This Is It, as well as two Cirque du Soleil shows, Variety reports.

The royalties and production fees arise from some of Michael’s biggest hits like “Thriller” and “Billie Jean.”

In the lawsuit filed around four years ago, Quincy sought $30 million, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, Michael’s estate claimed the number was around $392,000.

“As an artist, maintaining the vision and integrity of one’s creation is of paramount importance,” Quincy said in a statement. “I, along with the team I assembled with Michael, took great care and purpose in creating these albums, and it has always given me a great sense of pride and comfort that three decades after they were originally recorded, these songs are still being played in every corner of the world.”

“This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created,” he added. “Although this judgment is not the full amount that I was seeking, I am very grateful that the jury decided in our favor in this matter. I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists’ rights overall.”

Michael and Quincy worked together on Michael‘s albums Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad.

Adam Sandler Shares His Don Rickles Fond Memories With Jimmy Kimmel - Watch Here!

Adam Sandler, along with tons of other celebs, is paying his respects to the late Don Rickles.

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new original Netflix movie Sandy Wexler on Thursday evening (April 6) in Los Angeles, the 50-year-old entertainer reminisced about some of his time with Don in honor of the legendary comedian’s death that same day at age 90.

Jimmy, who also presented a montage of some of Don‘s greatest moments on his show, began by remembering an occasion when Adam and Don were on the show together.

Don, known for being an insult comic, shouted, “let’s take up a collection and buy Adam a suit.” On another occasion, Adam was having dinner with Steve Buscemi just after the release of Reservoir Dogs and Don happened to be there. The comic threw a barb at Buscemi, joking, “I saw your movie, Mr. Pink, more like Mr. Stink.” And then he turned his attention to Adam, quipping, ‘I saw Happy Gilmore, it’s amazing how no talent can get you a movie.’”

Pictured: Adam making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing April 7) before hitting the carpet with his co-stars Jennifer Hudson, David Spade, Quincy Jones, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and Jane Seymour at the premiere of Sandy Wexler held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on Thursday (April 6) in Hollywood.
