Another day, another Michael Jackson lawsuit.
John Landis - the genius behind the Thriller music video - is suing for the 50% of the profits owed to him over the past 4 years.
Back in 1983, Landis' people entered into a contract with Jackson's people, granting Landis 50% of profits earned from the video. And yes, that includes Broadway adaptations.
Landis says that Jackson - or whoever is running his troubled finances - has failed to "provide any accounting of the Thriller profits for the past four years 'and earlier', and failing to pay Landis his 50 percent cut of the net proceeds."
But, the most troubling aspect of the case, however, is that there doesn't seem to be anyone in charge of the crumbling King of Pop's Financial Kingdom, except for a "mysterious Los Angeles physician" named Tohme Tohme.
Jackson needs some Daddy Spears in his life! ASAP!
