Quincy Jones has claimed the new Michael Jackson album, 'Xscape', was only released to make money.
The legendary producer - who masterminded some of the late singer's biggest hits - thinks the posthumous recording was only released to ''make money''.
He said: ''It's about money. They're trying to make money. And I understand it. Everybody's after money, the estate, the lawyers. It's about money.
Quincy admitted it ''bothers'' him to see so much of the 'Thriller' star's previously-unreleased music being made public but has learned to accept it has nothing to do with him.
Asked if he was bothered by the recordings, he told Jian Ghomeshi's 'Q' talk show on CBC Radio: ''Yeah, but it's not my business anymore. They're not our business.''
Quincy's comments come months after he launched a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit in relation to the recordings released after the 'Billie Jean' stars death in June 2009.
He alleged master recordings he had worked on were wrongfully edited and remixed so as to deprive him of back-end profit participation.
He also claimed he had been denied credit for his work and that MJJ Productions and Sony Music have entered into deals taking profits that should have been included in the calculation of royalties.
