Michael Jackson - Michael Jacksons Manager Sues Over Royalties

Subscribe Michael Jackson

A former manager for Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five has filed a lawsuit alleging he is owed royalty money from albums including the King of Pop's mega-hit Thriller.

Richard Arons, who helped manage the Jackson Five in the 1970s with family patriarch Joe Jackson, filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (24Jun13) alleging his payments from Thriller and other albums have stopped.

He is demanding $10 million (£6.5 million) from Sony Music Entertainment in lost royalties, costs and damages, and he is also asking the court to grant a continuation of future payments.

Arons, 75, claims he is owed 7.5 per cent from sales of albums including Thriller, Off The Wall, Victory and The Jacksons Live stemming from a series of agreements he made with Joe Jackson in the 1980s, and Michael Jackson in the 1990s, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The lawsuit was filed a day before the fourth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. The superstar passed away on 25 June, 2009.
