Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is turning out to be a real sheisty summumaB*tch. In this issue of Took Them Stacks And Ran MJ is being sued by John Landis who co-wrote and directed Michael Jackson’s Thriller back in 1983. Landis is saying that Jacko has refused to pay him his portion of the profits which acocording to him is % 50.

Via Eurweb:

Lawsuits seem to follow Michael Jackson around like those zombies did in his iconic “Thriller” video. The latest legal snag comes from the clip’s director, John Landis, who claims the singer owes him profits from the video for the last four years.

 

Landis – who co-wrote and directed the 14-minute video in 1983 – filed the suit last week in Los Angeles Superior Court through his company, Levitsky Prods., against Jackson and Optimum Prods. 

 

 “After a spectacular theatrical premiere, the ‘Thriller’ video became a worldwide megahit and an iconic pop culture phenomenon that has continued to generate profits for defendants Optimum Prods. and Michael Jackson, who have wrongfully refused to pay or account for such profits to plaintiff,” the suit said.       

The action accuses Jackson of “fraudulent, malicious and oppressive conduct” in failing to pay Landis 50% of the net proceeds. The suit includes the 1983 agreement between Jackson and Landis covering the video and an hour-long documentary, which Landis also directed.       

News of the lawsuit comes two days after the Nederlander Organization announced it had obtained rights to produce a musical version of “Thriller,” with Jackson due to be involved in “every aspect” of the creative process.

Mediaoutrage– Mike might owe Mr. Landis quite a bit of change if this lawsuit is true. Thriller has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide since its 1983 release. Smh @ Mike’s frail ass trying to Suge Knight N*ggas. One day someone’s going to penetrate that weird security of his and put a ghetto street brawl whoooping on that ass.

    Damn Mike, I hope I never see you asking for a loan of $1.00 your credit is bad and you won’t pay it back. OK so if i loan you draws, would you wash them and give them back? or would you just throw them in the garbage and claim you can’t find them. If I loan you make-up would you wear it all at one time or leave some and give it back? Mike what about if I loan you some Ambi so you can hide under black skin,would you use the entire jar or save some for when internal revenue comes to get you with your thieven ass.You out buying stupid shit,knowing you owe people.
