Michael Jackson's Estate and Paul Anka Sued for $24 Million by Music Producer

By November 14, 2012

Follow me on:

Music producer Michael Jonzun has sued the estate of Michael Jackson and singer/songwriter Paul Anka for one-third of the proceeds from the sale of the 2009 song "This is It." In his lawsuit, Jonzun claims that he helped Jackson and Anka remake MJ's 1983 song "I Never Heard" into "This is It" and is therefore entitled to $24 million. According to TMZ, in response to the lawsuit, Anka said that he "never even heard the name Michael Jonzun before today -- and any claims Jonzun owns a portion of 'This Is It' are 'BS.'"
