PHOTOS! Here are pictures of Ola Ray who went from Playboy to Thriller. Now former Miss Playboy Ola Ray is suing Michael Jackson.
Ola Ray appeared in the 14 minute music video decades ago but claims that since roughly 1988 she has gotten paid. Ray is now 48 and still looks beautiful. Her attorney says of her lawsuit:
“She just wants to get her fair share of payments from this extremely successful project that she’s very proud of. She did receive some payments early on, but we don’t believe they were complete, and they were never timely.
“We’re expecting it to be a significant sum that she’s owed. The video continues to sell a lot worldwide and was just released again for it 25th anniversary.”
Michael Jackson has yet commented.
Ola was Miss June 1980 and came from LALATE’s own St. Louis, Missouri.
To be an actress, singer, dancer and to continue to be a model.
Music, men, dancing and romancing, health and nature.
Ironically, she listed for Playboy – years before the Thriller job – that her favorite performer is Michael Jackson and the thing she hates most is waiting for something that doesn’t come (just like her alleged residuals)!
