MJ's 'Thriller' Date -- Jackson Estate Must Pay

8/25/2009 2:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ola RayThe woman who starred in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video now claims MJ's estate owes her big-time for the famous vid.

Ola Ray sued Michael for breach of contract back in May, claiming she was stiffed out of her cut of the "Thriller" profits.

Since Michael's not around anymore, she wants the estate to pay up -- filing a creditor's claim in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday.

Although it's been almost four months since she first filed the initial papers against MJ, she still doesn't know how much money she's owed.

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi will set foot on U.S. soil for the first time next month! The Libyan government owns property in Englewood, NJ which happens to be 12 miles north of Manhattan. Remember Lockerbie, Scotland, the work of Libyan intelligence (Gadhafi), killing all 259 people on board flight 103, including 33 from New Jersey. Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was convicted in 1988 for bombing that Pan American Flight 103 and just the other day Abdel was freed from that life sentence and was returned to Libya because he is dying of cancer, when he returned to Lybia he received a hero’s welcome. Gadhafi is a dangerous dictator whose hands are covered with the blood of Americans and our allies. The State Department needs to limit if not restrict Gadhafi’s travel into the U.S.

If it's owed, and can be proven (she's not the first, or last person he stiffed) then she should get what she's entitled too.

Are you freaking kidding me?? The only reason why she is doing this because she's broke && she just want some money..&& "Thriller" was like in the 80's. People just don't care that Michael Jackson died && they want money

Im pretty sure she's talking about payment for royalties. The video keeps getting aired & she's in it, so she is entitled to be payed for that.

I bet the law office that represents Team Branca has a special team who sole purpose is to handle lawsuits against the estate. That group will probably be just as busy as the group that handles new merchandising arrangements.
