"Thriller" Video Vixen Ola Ray Who Sued Claiming She Was Owed Royalties, Gets $50,000 From Michael Jackson's Estate

Via TMZ..........
$55,000 … that’s how much it took for the chick from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video to call a truce in her war with the MJ estate … TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story … Ola Ray settled her lawsuit with the estate earlier this year, and now we know what for … $55,000 to Ola … and $20,000 to her lawyer.

Ola originally

filed the suit against MJ and his production company in May 2009 — a month before Jackson passed away — claiming breach of contract. Ola said she was still owed a massive chunk of the “Thriller” profits … nearly 30 years after it was released.

The director of the music video John Landis — who filed a similar lawsuit against the estate — has also settled … but he wanted in excess of $2 million, so we’re guessing he got a little more than Ola.

Frankly speaking, I don't know why this lady felt she was owed anything. Apart from playing her role in the video, for which she was paid, she did not contribute anything creatively so I don't know why she made noise all these years.I don't even understand why they eventually paid her.
