Sony is now confirming the hack of its website, which resulted in cyber thieves stealing Michael Jackson tracks.

The company paid $250 million to MJ’s singer’s estate in a seven-year deal for the rights to his remaining songs. Sony released the late singer’s first posthumous album, Michael, in December of 2010.

Trouble began for the Japanese company, last year, when their Sony PlayStation Network was hacked. The personal details of more than 70 million is said to have been taken.

Reps for Sony would not confirm how much of Jackon’s catalog was actually stolen
