The 84-year-old claims both companies were responsible for an unethical accounting trick where they mislabeled money from the King of Pop's music as profits instead of royalties.

Fast forward to Wednesday, the music producer won the fight and was awarded $9.4 million (out of the $10 million he asked for).

What a Thriller of a court case!

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

no title

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!

You knew that Parks And Recreation's Rashida Jones's dad was the legendary Quincy Jones, right??

If not, well, that sucks! We're sorry you were in the dark for so long! LOLz!

The duo are teaming up for some major good! They'll be together in a new campaign for Stand Up to Cancer and America's Prostate Cancer Foundation (Pcf)!

Here's what Rashida had to say:

"We have to protect the men we cherish, so please talk to your fathers, your grandfathers, husbands, brothers and sons and make sure they speak to their doctors about this disease and how to reduce their risk."

And Quincy says:

"As a father, I cherish the special moments in life and understand how they can fly by in an instant. Prostate cancer has affected dear friends and family of mine, so I am honoured to be part of this campaign with Stand Up To Cancer and the Prostate Cancer Foundation to reinforce how incredibly important it is for men to talk to their doctors about prostate cancer."

The campaign starts mid-way through next month! So freaking fab!

What an amazing cause, and what a great thing for a family to do together!

Good luck, guys!!
