Pop singer Michael Jackson will end his long feud with singing music legend Paul McCartney by leaving him the Beatles back catalogue in his will, according to media reports. The former friends fell out in 1985 when Jackson beat McCartney and John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, in the race to buy up the rights to 200 of the legendary bands hits. They collaborated on 1982 single The Girl is Mine, but have barely spoken since, with McCartney feeling he was betrayed by his buddy. The icon explained his frustration in the past, saying, "You know what doesn’t feel very good, is going on tour and paying to sing all my songs. Every time I sing Hey Jude. I’ve got to pay someone". Since the purchase, Jackson merged the catalogue with music giants Sony, and created SonyATV, of which he holds a 50 per cent share.And close sources claim Jackson wants to leave his stake to McCartney or his children when he dies. An insider tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Michael told his lawyers he was sad he no longer talks to Sir Paul and said he wanted to make things right."
