Michael Jackson ‘s girlfriend from the Thr!ller short movie music video, Ola Ray, looks completely different but just as beautiful 37 years after the iconic fl!ck was released.
Ola, now 60, appeared as MJ’s girlfriend in the 1983 music video before going on to appear in a number of television shows and movies.
Thr!ller wasn’t her first public appearance though, as she was crowned Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in the June 1980 issue.
After Thr!ller, Ola appeared in movies such as Fear City, The Night Sta-lker, and even played a Pla*boy Pla*mate in Beverly Hills Cop II. Her most recent screen appearance was as Helen in the 2020 film Sh*oting Hero!n.
And, according to her IMDB page, she is currently working on a title called Va-mpireS in which she plays Va-mpire Ambrosia. Despite becoming widely recognized next to the King of Pop in Thr!ller, there was plenty of contr-oversy surrounding her participation. She had previously complained about having tro-uble trying to collect royalties from the project.
Ola told the Sunday Mirror in 2008: “Everyone thinks I made millions, but I don’t care. I wouldn’t change a thing.”And in 2009 she su-ed Jackson to try and collect her royalties, however, he passed away less than two months later. Three years later, The Michael Jackson Family Trust settled the lawsu!t for a reported $75,000 (£57k), according to TMZ, with $55,000 (£42k) going to her and the rest to her legal team.
However, in 2017, she became unhappy again when the 3D version of Thr!ller was released, telling the Daily Mail: “I’m outr-aged, upset and in sho-ck.”When I heard rumors about a possible 3D version, I contacted the director and said, ‘We need to talk about this.'”But he never responded to my email. They haven’t tried to contact me or negotiate anything. How do they think they can just do this without paying me?”
Nowadays, Ola describes herself as a “former model and actress” though it seems she’s adding writing to her list of skills. Her Instagram bio reads: “Living life one day at a time, I love my family and stay tuned for my upcoming book.”Over the weekend she celebrated Joe Biden’s projected US Presidential win by sharing a selfie with VP Kamala Harris.
She often uploads glamorous selfies to her account, which currently has 9,000 followers, while also urging them to vote, stay inside due to the Covid-19 or the like.
