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.

"Despite the recent media reports, Ola Ray did not sue Michael Jackson again. Ray's case has been closed last December, because she was unable to show the cause of the case. On April 24, 2009 Ray's lawyer filed a motion to reopen the case citing that it's been closed in error. It appears that TMZ may have mistaken her case from 2008 for something new."

As mentioned in the original MJJR.net report below, Ola had sued Michael Jackson and related parties twice in the past decade or so seeking money for her participation in the Thriller music video; it appears that TMZ may have mistaken her case from 2008 for something new.

Dissapointing    

I recall that she DID in fact try to sue him way back when, but was ignored. I applaud her for keeping up with all this. And Billy Jean was probably his lover too. Where is she? Here's some interesting reading http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2009/05/06/2009-05-06_gloves_are_off_thriller_model_sues_for_royalties.html
