He has a degree in theology from Central Bible Institute and Seminary in Springfield, Mo., and an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Okla., among other honorary doctorates.

He met his wife, Janice Bethany Crouch, in 1957 and they married in Missouri.

Quincy Jones sues Michael Jackson’s estate for $10 million

quincyQuincy Jones the 80-year-old music legend, who coproduced Michael Jackson‘s biggest albums, including Thriller, has filed a $10 million lawsuit against the late pop icon’s estate, alleging that “clandestine arrangements” put in place have served to cheat him out of royalties he’s due for his contributions to Jackson’s earlier work.

Per court documents obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, Jones claims that the recordings he worked on have been edited and remixed in a way to deprive him of his deserved cut from projects like the This Is It soundtrack and the two current Cirque du Soleil shows that utilize Jackson’s music.

“Quincy has been frustrated with these matters for a number of years, felt he was not making any progress and needed to take more formal action,” his attorney, Henry Gradstein, told THR.

Jackson estate attorney Howard Weitzman said in a statement that they were “saddened to learn that Quincy Jones has filed a lawsuit seeking money from Michael’s estate. To the best of [the estate’s] knowledge, Mr. Jones has been appropriately compensated over approximately 35 years for his work with Michael.”

The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. Superior Court, charges that Jackson’s estate “secretly entered into a venture agreement with Sony” to share profits in violation of deals Jones signed in 1978 and 1985 assuring that he would get a “backend” piece from the sale of revamped tracks.
