MJ Estate & Paul Anka

Sued Over 'This Is It'

For $24 MILLION

A music producer claims he's owed at least $24 MILLION for his work on the Paul Anka/Michael Jackson collaboration "This Is it" -- and now, he's suing Anka and the MJ Estate for the money.

The producer -- named Michael Jonzun -- filed the lawsuit in Massachusetts federal court, claiming he helped remake Paul and MJ's 1983 song "I Never Heard" ... into what eventually became MJ's 2009 song "This Is It."

According to the lawsuit, Jonzun owns one-third of "This Is It" but he never got paid his share of the song's proceeds -- so he's suing.

Paul Anka tells TMZ, he has never even heard the name Michael Jonzun before today -- and any claims Jonzun owns a portion of "This Is It" are "BS."

But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”


Luke 18:16-17


"Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men."

At least Michael is not screaming alone in the flames - he has Anna Nicole Smith, Heath Ledger, Adolf Hitler, and soon to be there Jerry Sandusky! It's comforting to me to know that Michael is forever surrounded by his friends.
