Outkast Accused Of Stealing Ms Jackson
A Florida woman has filed charges against OUTKAST's ANDRE 3000 and BIG BOI, claiming she's both the writer and subject of the group's monster 2000 hit MS JACKSON.
JACQUELINE JACKSON claims she wrote the song after her daughter MONIQUE was impregnated by her teenage boyfriend, but the song was "stolen" from her by former business associate ANTONIO SEALS, who was also a high school friend of the Outkast duo.
Jackson has charged the trio with stealing from her and has filed a complaint with the Atlanta, Georgia, police department.
And now she's making her complaint public. She tells US news show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "They owe me because that was the fruit of my labour and I don't think they should reap the complete reward."
Jackson admits she finds the song hard to listen to because since the tune became a hit, her grandchild's father was murdered.25/03/2005 03:03
