    Like KOPV said we really can't say anythings good or bad we don't know what in her contract and we do not know if Michael promise her 2.5 royalties from Thriller so we will just have to see what happen.

    I agree; however I do not trust Ola (she been on crack cocaine). If she think she deserved royals (Quincy I can understand because he was a producer) then I guess we see Iman for "Remember the time", Titiana for "The way you make me feel"; Naomi Campbell for "In the closet";etc.

    ^ Terrell, lets just see how this plays out a little (more info to come out).. Thriller 3D is a "new project" using her likeness/image etc... Side note, her having (or had) a drug problem has nothing to do with this. There are usually royalties paid out when there image is being used for profit.. ie. Tatiana did sue when her image was used on the MJ experience game.. and we jumped on her saying the girl in the game did not look like her..

    Contract info will come out, Ola claimed before back in 2012 that her contract entitles her to a specific percent of revenue based off of video related merchandise. Now they are making new product(s) with her in it..

    Honestly since Ola came after the Estate in 2012, I think it's silly that they would not burn out this fire before it started.. I mean, it's not really a surprise is it?

    She filed the lawsuit before Michaels death. I think it was connected with Landis lawsuit. The Estate gave her 55000 Dollar.

    In the article it said A Jackson attorney reportedly paid an unspecified amount to Ray through the SAG in 1998 but it still fell short of what she was own as of today so now she is suing for the royalties and she want her fair share. Did Landis get anything on his lawsuit?

    And she also got 75 thousand (well, her attorney mainly did) in 2012.

    Yes, it's confidential, but Landis got millions and somehow he now owns part of Thriller, itself. BAD settlement, IMO.

    She got 55000 Dollars and 20000 Dollars for the lawyer-cost.

    I do not know how can say what Landis got when the settlement is confidential. I agree that the Thriller-3D-deal was made in the settlement-talk because it was made public with settlement-news.

    If she's owed money that wasn't paid to her, she has every right to collect. No different then anyone else who isn't paid for a job they did.

    What I don`t understand she will sue for royalities from Thriller 3 D, but until now it was only releasend on the film-festial. Isn`t this more a promotion for future-deals? I assume there was no roylalities-income from Thriller- 3D until now.
    I doubt that she has to give permission to restore original material.

    Maybe the zombies are the next who will sue the Estate, lol.
