Legendary producer QUINCY JONES is suing bosses at Sony and Michael Jackson Productions, accusing them of cutting him out of profits from the late King of Pop's music.
The music mogul claims he is owed a royalties fortune from the use the reworked tracks from the albums Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad, which he produced for Jackson.
Jones alleges songs he recorded have been edited and remixed for new ventures such as the This Is It movie and the Jackson Cirque du Soleil stage show, so that music bosses don't have to pay him royalties.
Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the Michael Jackson Estate, tells TMZ.com, "The estate of Michael Jackson was saddened to learn that Quincy Jones has filed a lawsuit seeking money from Michael's estate. To the best of our knowledge, Mr. Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael."
Jones is requesting at least $10 million .
