    The powers-that-be who manage Michael Jackson's estate have settled a royalty battle with the former Playboy model who appeared in his legendary "Thriller" video.

    Ola Ray, who played Jackson's girlfriend in the clip, filed a lawsuit against Jackson before he died in 2009, claiming she was still owed unpaid royalties from her appearance.

    Her lawyer claimed she was owed a lot of money, since the video is worth millions. A settlement out of court was reached and the sum will not be disclosed.

    Do you love the "Thriller" video?
