Quincy Jones

Steve Wynn & Joe Francis

Gave Me Heart Problems

8/31/2012 5:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Music legend Quincy Jones claims Steve Wynn and Joe Francis' legal war over an alleged murder plot has caused him "grave fear of his health" -- including difficulty breathing and heart palpitations.

TMZ broke the story ... Jones was subpoenaed to testify in Wynn's defamation lawsuit against Francis, in which the "Girls Gone Wild" creator has claimed Wynn threatened to kill him and have him buried in the desert over a debt Francis owed to Wynn's casino.

According to Francis, Jones had seen an email from Wynn detailing the murder plot -- so Wynn called on 79-year-old Jones to testify in order to prove Francis was full of crap.

But right after he was served with a subpoena last week at the airport, Jones claims he experienced "increased anxiety, heart palpitations, and difficulty breathing."

Jones then got a letter from his doctor asking to be excused from the trial, in which his doc writes, "I have examined Mr. Jones and at this time I highly recommend that he not be required to testify in a court setting that will only exacerbate his current deteriorating condition."

The subpoena has since been quashed and Jones is no longer required to testify.

In regards to Quincy Jones, the real story is the hollywood secret that he is known to proposition young guys for sex in the business. Tupac had quite an interesting encounter with him and so did a few other young guys. Google it.

Oh, so your heart problems have nothing to do with all those years of eating fried foods?

What a cop-out on Quincy's part. Take a Valium old man and stand up for yourself! If you've got pertinent information, you had the option of being deposed in a private setting, and presenting your info that way. Wuss!

Maybe there's something to the threats for Quincy to get so worked up over testifying against Wynn?! I've heard scary stories about Wynn from friends in Vegas.

Why would Wynn go to the trouble of offing him? There are countless victims of Joe Francis out there, and they should just line up and each spit on him.. he'd be buried in spit and suffocate. Quincy Jones is a really nice guy in person, doesn't deserve this.

Can't have any sympathy for this person after seeing a rare and now "censored" interview of him and MJ. Quincy was all over MJ in a loving kind of way, if ya know what I mean. Creeped the crap out of me.

Maybe it's time for another "We Are The World" rendition. The last one was a loser.

Maybe QJ should be pen pals with Sandusky. They have common interests.

His anxiety probably stemmed from worry about having to commit perjury. Or not.
