Looks like the old/lead ‘Thriller’ chick, Ola Ray showed up for a few bucks – claims breach of contract, and it looks like she got a nice settlement. Peep the deets below…

Via TMZ:

$55,000 … that’s how much it took for the chick from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video to call a truce in her war with the MJ estate … TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story … Ola Ray settled her lawsuit with the estate earlier this year, and now we know what for … $55,000 to Ola … and $20,000 to her lawyer.

Ola originally filed the suit against MJ and his production company in May 2009 — a month before Jackson passed away — claiming breach of contract. Ola said she was still owed a massive chunk of the “Thriller” profits … nearly 30 years after it was released.

The director of the music video John Landis — who filed a similar lawsuit against the estate — has also settled … but he wanted in excess of $2 million, so we’re guessing he got a little more than Ola.

Funny how situations like this shows up 30 years later. Sheesh. 

Well, we hope she’s happy.
