$55,000 … that’s how much it took for the chick from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video to call a truce in her war with the MJ estate … TMZ has learned.

 

TMZ broke the story … Ola Ray settled her lawsuit with the estate earlier this year, and now we know what for … $55,000 to Ola … and $20,000 to her lawyer.

 

Ola originally filed the suit against MJ and his production company in May 2009 — a month before Jackson passed away — claiming breach of contract. Ola said she was still owed a massive chunk of the “Thriller” profits … nearly 30 years after it was released.

 

The director of the music video John Landis — who filed a similar lawsuit against the estate — has also settled … but he wanted in excess of $2 million, so we’re guessing he got a little more than Ola.

 

Mjj says, Damn 55,000…that should have been interest give or take a few hundred thousands….The King Of Pop Estate gave her a few crumbs and told her to Beat It………

Spike Lee Documentary “Bad 25″ Debuts at Venice Film Festival In Honor of Michael Jackson

Well it would have been nice to kick it in Venice, Italy to check out Spike Lee’s “Bad 25″. This film was put together to honor Michael Jackson and his legacy. Spike Lee was called upon by Sony to put together collection of pieces that shine the light on Michael Jackson’s hard work, determination, and extraordinary talent. Below we have outlined the debut as well as some facts about Michael Jackson in regards to some of the mysteries in his songwriting.

 

The collage of recollections lifts the lid off mysteries like who was Annie, as in ‘Annie are you O.K.’ in “Smooth Criminal” (Annie is the name of all CPR dummies) and why Michael Jackson sings “Shamon” on the “Bad” title track (a tribute to blues singer Mavis Staples.)

 

The documentary argues strongly for Michael Jackson’s genius, highlighting his achievements as a singer, songwriter, producer, performer, dancer and fashion trendsetter.

“I am not going to say Michael was Jesus Christ,” Lee told a news conference at the festival. “But if you look at the performance, he was somewhere else. That was one of the greatest performances, ever, ever, ever. He is not of this world.”

“Bad” marked the third (and last) project that Michael Jackson produced with the equally legendary Quincy Jones. The duo laced the album with a mixture of R&B, pop and rock tunes that ranged from dance floor hits to tender ballads to introspective calls for social change.

 

“Bad” was the first album to produce five consecutive No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and was the sixth album to debut at No. 1 in the history of the Billboard 200, spending 38 weeks in the chart’s top 10. On its 25th anniversary, we take a listen to the classic album that truly defined Michael Jackson as the King of Pop.

Although “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” was the first single off “Bad,” the album’s title single set the sweeping, daring mood for Michael’s album. “Bad” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on Oct. 24, 1987. “Bad” — which was inspired by a magazine story of a student’s death — became Michael’s second “Bad” Hot 100 No. 1 and his seventh No. 1 in total.

 

“Bad” was reportedly intended to be a duet between both Michael Jackson and Prince, but then union unfortunately didn’t come to fruition.

Shot in Harlem and a Brooklyn subway station in New York City, it marked Wesley Snipes’ film debut and was designed to give Michael Jackson street cred.

KATHERINE JACKSON LOSES GUARDIANSHIP OF MICHAEL JACKSON’S KIDS

KATHERINE JACKSON LOSES TEMP CUSTODY OF THE JACKSON KIDS, TO HER NEPHEW TRENT JACKSON

The Jackson Saga continues, Trent  TJ Jackson is now temporary guardian of Paris, Prince, and Blanket. Katherine Jackson has been allegedly held captive and hasn’t been capable of taking care of her 3 precious darling grandchildren so, T.J  jumped at the opportunity to be their new guardian because he has that maternal instinct the others lack.

According to E online

On today’s episode of the Jackson family drama: Michael Jackson’s three children get a new guardian…and Diana Ross is suddenly pulled into the fray!

Following an emergency court hearing this morning in Los Angeles, family matriarch Katherine Jackson has temporarily lost custody of Paris, Prince and Blanket following an odd coup attempt that involved several of Michael’s siblings flying the 82-year-old woman to Arizona in an apparent plot to wrest away control of his multimillion-dollar estate.

In the end, it was T.J. Jackson, Michael’s nephew and Tito’s 34-year-old son, who was appointed temporary guardian of the three kids after Paris and Prince consented to being in T.J.’s custody in the absence of their grandmother.

Diana Ross, whom Michael listed as a backup guardian in his will if anything were to prevent his mother from fulfilling the role, has been given notice of the situation in case she wants to be appointed guardian. Also informed of the custody change was Debbie Rowe, biological mother to the two elder children.

For the time being, Katherine’s monthly allowance of $86,000 as guardian of Michael’s children will go to T.J. It’s that money that, sources have told E! News, is what motivated Katherine’s children Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie Jackson to separate her from the kids as they sought to invalidate their late brother’s will. (The question of the will is set to be taken up at another court hearing later today.)

Today’s hearing came after Paris, 14, took to Twitter in recent days to say she had no contact with Katherine for more than a week. That changed last night, one insider said, when Katherine phoned her grandchildren around 3 a.m. According to the insider, Katherine sounded “very sedated” (possibly because she had just woken up) and “said she wanted to come home [to L.A.] three times.”

T.J.’s lawyer told the judge Wednesday his client believed Katherine might have been talking in some kind of code because others were listening.

Meanwhile, T.J. is filing a request to be named permanent guardian of the three kids. As temporary guardian, T.J. must give consent for anyone at the house (from security to gardeners, etc.) to be hired or fired. Per today’s order of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, the children cannot be removed from California.

“The kids love T.J. and trust him. This is good news,” a source extremely close to the family told E! News. “It is not about taking [guardianship] away from Katherine. They are trying to protect the kids from the other family…T.J. didn’t step in to remove her. He stepped in because she is not there. He is extremely tight for his grandmother.”

But today’s maneuvering doesn’t resolve the long-term custody of the three children.

Katherine’s attorney, Perry Saunders, said that he adamantly opposes Katherine being permanently removed as guardian. “When she gets back [home to L.A.],” Saunders says he will file papers to get her reinstated. This could be happening very soon, as sources tell E! News that the Jackson matriarch is flying from Arizona to L.A. within hours.

Another source told E! News that Janet Jackson was by her mother’s side and kept her apprised of the all the family turmoil and that Katherine was “devastated by the judge’s ruling.” “The idea that Katherine is sedated and being held prisoner by her own children is preposterous,” the source said. “She will fight for the truth to be heard.”

However, Berkloff said he wanted to make clear that T.J.’s temporary guardianship is “not a power move” and the court is “not saying Katherine has done anything wrong.”

Earlier in the day Wednesday, Paris tweeted: “”everyones taking control of me , it seems that the worlds got a role for me .. im so confused will u show to me you’ll be there for me”

We certainly hope T.J. will be there for her and her siblings during this tumultuous time.

Mediajuicejoint- I hope Katherine Jackson get well soon, she seem to be the only one who doesn’t have alterior motives and deserves that 86k a month.

Do you think TJ wants to get his hands in the cookie jar or, is he sincere and wants to be their protector and keep Janet off of Paris asz and provide guidance for his little cousins who hold the key to financial freedom?

Correction: This post originally stated that Trent Jackson is now temporary guardian of Paris, Prince, and Blanket. He is not their new temporary guardian. T.J. Jackson was appointed temporary guardian of MJ’s three kids.

JANET JACKSON SLAPS THE PISS OUT OF PARIS

PARIS SLAPPED BY AUNTIE JANET FOR ALLEGEDLY TALKING ISH ON TWITTERJANET SLAPS PARIS

Trouble is brewing over on 2100 Jackson Street where it’s always home ….just not lately. The Jackson clan have been up in arms over Michael Jackson’s trust. Janet smacked the piss out of Paris, for all that tweeting ish that’s going on.

Where’s Momma Jackson at, and who and why was she whisked away from her darling little grand babies Paris, Prince and Blanket? Marlon,Tito, and Jackie are doing interviews for money but, Tito walks off during the interview after the conversation took a turn in the direction of What happens to the Trust Fund after Momma Jackson is gone.

It appears that the Jackson’s will go to know length to get their hands on MJ’s money. They couldn’t get it when he was alive and it’s looking like they ain’t never gone get it, MJ made sure of that….. leaving it all to his kids.

It’s a damn shame that all of this fighting and BS is all over money……money that MJ earned and Randy and the others want to spend….smh

MICHAEL JACKSON IS BEING SUED BY HIS SO CALLED EX LOVER FOR A BILLION DOLLARS

A WOMAN CLAIMING SHE'S THE KING OF POP EX LOVER AND HE USED HER TWISTED TALES OF HER LIFE IN HIS SONGS

Michael Jackson is being sued by an ex lover from the 80′s, she claims….yes I did say she claims that MJ used her dirty little secrets about her twisted life in his musical masterpieces….picture that. Now you know damn well that’s some make believe ish, next she”ll bring to light his 55 year old illegitimate son, so he can get his piece of The Estate too.

According to Tmz  Michael Jackson owes a convicted criminal $1 BILLION for exploiting personal details about her life in his music — this according to a bizarre and, dare we say, bogus lawsuit.

Kimberly Griggs filed the case in San Diego — claiming she and Jackson had an intimate relationship beginning in 1979, which she says he chronicled in his albums “Off the Wall,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Dangerous,” and his greatest hits album … “Number Ones.”

Griggs — who spent years in prison for burglary and robbery — claims she was pissed that Michael exposed her personal secrets in his tunes, so to make things nice he promised to give her the rights to the songs.

She says she was stunned when MJ died and she was completely left out of his estate.

According to the handwritten lawsuit, Griggs wants $1 billion in damages.

Calls to MJ’s Estate weren’t returned, but we’re guessing their response begins with the letters b and s.

Mediajuicejoint- Michael Jackson is rolling, turning, and laughing his asz off in his grave on this one, an intimate relationship with the King of Pop in the 80′s, B*tch please the only draws he saw was Brooke Shield’s maybe, and Bubbles…….Cocaine is a powerful drug. She may have been Big Bertha’s jailhouse muse , but definitely Not Michael Jackson’s.
