Quincy Jones Claims He's The Victim Of Financial Elder Abuse Amid Court Battle Over Michael Jackson Music Royalties!

Elders should be respected, not swindled!

Yet music legend Quincy Jones claims he's the victim of financial elder abuse in the court battle over Michael Jackson royalties.

The case went to trial this week in L.A. this week, and now reports are saying the record producer has filed a new claim against MJ's estate.

According to TMZ, Quincy says Sony Music and MJJ Productions took advantage of his age and pulled an accounting trick that screwed him out of a large chunk of revenue from a number of hits he produced.

The documents allege that the studios labeled a sum of money from Jackson's music as profits, opposed to royalties, which the 84-year-old claims he is entitled to.

Rashida Jones' dad — who produced classic MJ albums Off The Wall, Bad, and Thriller — is suing for at least $10 million and is expected to testify next week.

We hope the man gets what he's due!

Michael Jackson Musical Hit A Legal Snag!

Everything having to do with this guy has become a court case!

Michael Jackson signed a contract a year before his death with Nederlander Presentations for a musical featuring tracks from his albums Thriller and Off the Wall, but now his estate is attempting to nix it from happening!

However, Nederlander is filing a creditor's claim and hoping a probate judge will force the executors of the estate to honor the aforementioned contract!

Lawyer Howard Weitzman says:

"I've seen their creditor's claim. I don't agree with their request."

What do U think?? Should a Michael Jackson musical come to Broadway??
