Marvin Gaye’s Son Says Robin Thicke Copies Music
Via TMZ reports:
Marvin Gaye’s son is out for blood in his war with Robin Thicke, telling “TMZ Live” he resents Thicke’s lawsuit against the Gaye estate over “Blurred Lines” … and is strongly insinuating he plans to respond with legal action of his own.
Marvin Gaye III dropped us a line Wednesday, and he’s not happy … basically saying Thicke has disrespected the Gaye family by shamelessly lifting his father’s famous tunes for the hit song (plus many other Thicke tracks).
As you know, Thicke has filed a lawsuit against the Gaye estate, asking a judge to head off any legal action from the Gayes by ruling “Blurred Lines” does NOT violate Marvin’s copyrights.
Marvin III says Thicke’s lawsuit is a total slap in the face.
Marvin III hedged when we asked flat out if he plans to sue Thicke for copyright infringement … but the message was clear.
What rhymes with sue me?
