According to TMZ, Michael Jackson’s estate has paid $55,000 to Ola Ray — the young lady from Michael’s “Thriller” music video– in order to call a truce in her war with his estate.
Ola Ray settled her lawsuit with the estate earlier this year, receiving $55,000 and an additional $20,000 for her lawyer.
The suit had originally been filed –against MJ and his production company– in May 2009 … only a month before Jackson passed away!
Ola said she was still owed a massive chunk of the “Thriller” profits … nearly 30 years after it was released!
I guess being in one of the most legendary music videos of all time wasn’t enough for her…..
John Landis — the director of the music video– filed a similar lawsuit against the estate which has been settled as well!
