Jackson Family Patriarch Joe Jackson Injured In Car Crash

Michael Jackson’s father Joe Jackson is reportedly recovering in hospital after he was involved in a Las Vegas car accident on Friday (June 30).

 

TMZ reports the 88-year-old Jackson family patriarch was sitting in the passenger seat in a black Jaguar when the driver of a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) slammed into his car.

The crash was a side collision, with the SUV motorist apparently T-boning the Jaguar, but according to eyewitnesses, Joe was well enough to walk away from the scene to a nearby Panda Express fast food restaurant to seek some help.

Sources claim the octogenarian walked into the eatery wincing with complaints of chest pain before paramedics arrived to take him to a nearby hospital.

At press time, representatives for Joe had yet to comment on the report.

The car crash is the latest in a series of unfortunate events the former Jackson family manager has experienced recently.

Last month, Joe had to fend off death rumours after being hospitalised for an unknown illness.

Paul McCartney Regains Beatles Rights From Sony

Paul McCartney has struck a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing to regain the rights to the music that he wrote for the Beatles.

 

McCartney has not had the rights to his own music since 1985 when ATV publishing, who had owned the rights since 1967, was put up for sale. McCartney was outbid by the late Michael Jackson who paid $47 million for the catalog.

In 1995, Jackson sold half of his holdings to Sony for $100 million. The other half was sold to Sony by Jackson’s estate for $750 million.

McCartney has claimed that he should have the rights returned to him starting next year due to the copyright laws which return songs back to the original composers after 56 years. Sony, on the other hand, had not acknowledged the scheduled transfer of rights and McCartney has been working with them the last couple of years to get plans in place but had to revert to legal moves.
