Jacko's Thriller 'Date' Sues

Michael Stiffed Me!

5/5/2009 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The chick who starred as Michael Jackson's female date in the "Thriller" video is suing Jacko and his production company -- claiming she hasn't been paid royalties from the legendary video.

Thriller

We spoke to Ola Ray's attorney, who tells us the former Playboy Playmate is suing for breach of contract because she claims she never got her cut of the "Thriller" profits.

We're told Ola's not sure exactly how much she's owed -- her accountants will figure that out.

love the "B---h Pleaze" comment

Sorry she was not contractually entitled to profits/royalties.
Anyone could have done her part. She should be happy she got the part. Not that good looking.

Gold digger. Go get another job.

She probably didn't remember because she did a lot of drugs back then. Don't know if she still does but I thought this was already settled.

I think it is odd that she waited so long... isn't there a statute of limitations? Maybe she is broke and just thought she could take avantage of him... we are all opportunists...

Kenny darter, What "themes" are in the background? I am curious.

If I recall, the "Thriller" video was shot back in 1983, maybe 1984??? -- at least 25 years ago! Now, I'm not a fan of the freak named Michael Jackson, but it looks to me like Ms. Ray isn't doing too well financially and is trying to hustle a buck any way she can. After all, it's been literally decades since she's been able to use her Playboy "spread" (no pun intended lol) to make a little bank. At this point, her main source of income is probably making appearances at Playmate conventions selling her autograph for $10 a pop. Hef put her, along with the other aging Playmate has-beens, out to pasture a long, long, time ago. She likely can't even get into the mansion these days.
