Marvin Gaye family declines 6-figure settlement from Robin Thicke
Well…things are going to get interesting.
The family of late singer, Marvin Gaye, said no thanks to a 6-figure settlemeent deal by Canadian-crooner, Robin Thicke, and will take their changes in court. BLurred Lines, the latest single from Thicke has upset the Gaye family, calling it a ripe-off of Marvin’s hit, Got to Give it Up.
In a recent ineterview Marvin Gaye III claimed, “We’re not happy with the way that he went about doing business, let alone suing us over something where he clearly got his inspiration from at the least.”
The deal that the Gaye’s turned down would leave you to believe that Robin Thicke and the songwriters don’t feel good about the potential outcome in court.
