Official details have not been released as of press time. Jones reportedly died from a heart attack in his garage after coming back from a bike ride.
After his long stint at Motown, in 1987 Jones left the label to work with Michael Jackson at MJJ Productions until 2004.
In 2005, Jones, along with writer Stacy Brown published a very unflattering book about Jackson called “The Man Behind the Mask.” It was promoted as a true insider’s account because Jones had spent a total of 34 years with the superstar.
