American music producer Quincy Jones has filed a lawsuit for 10 million dollars aimed at Michael Jackson's posthumous music releases.

The legendary producer, who claimed that he is owed millions in royalties and production fees on some of the superstar's greatest hits, is reportedly suing the late singer's estate and Sony Music for not crediting him on the music in This Is It film, the Guardian reported.

The lawsuit states that the music has been used in the film This Is It and in a pair of Cirque du Soleil shows based on the King of Pop's songs.

The 80-year-old worked with Jackson on three of his most successful solo albums, Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad.

Meanwhile, Jackson's estate wrote in a statement that it was saddened by Jones' lawsuit.
