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!

The Emoji Movie Finally Has A Trailer To Try To Justify Its Existence! Watch & Decide For Yourself!

Is there a don't-get-your-hopes-up emoji we can use here?

The new trailer for Sony's Emoji Movie just dropped, and pulls back the curtain on the magical universe taking place inside all of our smartphones.

This colorful app-Odyssey follows Gene (T.J. Miller), a complex emoji who wants to be of a singular emotion like the rest of his "Meh" family — so he ventures outside of Textopolis with his friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and Jailbreak emoji (Anna Faris).

If there's one thing children need, it's to have more compassion towards the emojis they use in text convos. We're just glad there's a film brave enough to tackle this conversation!

That said, we'll still totally watch this just to hear Sir Patrick Stewart playing the Poop Emoji. LOLz!

L.A. Reid Accused Of Sexual Harassment Amid His Sudden Departure From Sony Music!

Filed under: Legal MattersX FactorSony

no title

We still might not know where Dr. Luke stands with Sony Music, but it looks like the label isn't as hesitant to cut ties with other veteran producers.

Last week, the company announced that Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid was leaving Sony after six years.

Now, the reason behind his abrupt exit is coming to light: Reid has been accused of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic.

The New York Post reports that the accuser, represented by an attorney, submitted a letter to Sony detailing alleged inappropriate behavior by the industry veteran.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that the letter exists, and have discovered there have been "multiple" claims made against the record head who helped launch the careers of Meghan Trainor and Fifth Harmony.

But unlike its situation with Dr. Luke, the company isn't letting industry success excuse inappropriate behavior in the workplace. A source familiar with the X Factor host's ouster told The Post:

Dr. Luke's Rep Says The Music Producer & Sony 'Are Not Cutting Ties' — Well Then, What IS Going On??

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaSonyControversy

dr luke not ousted from sony

Dr. Luke (born Lukasz Gottwald) hasn't been fully ousted from Sony after all.

As we previously reported, the music company supposedly dropped the producer as CEO of Kemosabe Records — a record label Gottwald established with Sony back in 2011.

While many believed this demotion meant the industry vet would no longer have a working relationship with the media conglomerate, his rep has since defended that the 43-year-old is still professionally connected to Sony.

Dr. Luke's spokesperson told The Los Angeles Times:

"This is wrong, they are not cutting ties."

Well, well. We wonder what Kesha will have to say about this?? In case you forgot, the pop starlet has been trapped in a legal battle with the hitmaker since 2014 after she accused him of abuse.

We guess we'll just have to wait and see if Sony tries to clarify this incredibly confusing situation.
