Michael should've given him 10 percent of the song.
"I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff". "He stole a lot of songs. State of Independence" and 'Billie Jean.' The notes don't lie, man. "He was as Machiavellian as they come", he said in the interview. But now he's offering up his own ideas about where the comments really stem from, saying he thought Jones was "quite jealous of Michael because he's never worked with someone with all of that talent".
Joe then explains that Jones, who produced both "Billie Jean" and "State of Independence", is to blame for any similarities between the two songs. Listen below for yourselves.

It seems that Michael's father Joe Jackson has finally read the article and he, along with other family members, are going on the attack against the famous producer.
A few days ago, when TMZ asked Joe about the accusations Quincy Jones made he just said Jones "knows better" than to say Michael stole music from other artists. In the early "80s, Michael reportedly contested Jones" ability to receive any producer Grammys from his album "Thriller", not wanting to share the spotlight for work he felt he'd done on his own.
"He says my son stole it, but he was the producer on both ['Billie Jean" and "State of Independence'], so if anybody is wrong it would be Quincy", he said, reiterating that he believed that no part of "Billie Jean" was lifted. "Michael did all of the work".

Kerry, one of the leading negotiators on the deal, told the Munich Security Conference on Sunday that "this is untenable". Zarif, do you recognize this?", bringing laughter from the crowd. "Concessions to Hitler only emboldened the Nazis.
The rift grew wider when Jones' attempt to have Jackson and fellow megstar Prince collaborate on Jackson's song "Bad" fell apart.
These alledged secrets being unveiled after Jackson's death is unfair, as he is not here to defend himself. "The world knows that Michael was the No. 1 artist in the world, and he didn't need to steal from anyone".
