Marvin Gaye’s Family Wants Money From T.I. Over Blurred Lines Song
Marvin Gaye’s family isn’t done digging in the pockets of the ‘Blurred Lines’ hitmakers just yet! The family of the legendary singer is now moving forward with going after rapper T.I. for his involvement with the song.
Via TMZ reports:
Marvin Gaye’s family didn’t scored enough in their “Blurred Lines” lawsuit — now they’re going after T.I. and a few record labels to pay up … on top of the $7.4 million they won last week.
Only Pharrell and Robin Thicke were hit with the judgement last week, but attorneys for the Gaye family want Universal Music, Interscope Records and Star Trak Entertainment to fork over some cash too — as well as T.I., who rapped on ‘Blurred.’
Attaching the record labels could be the first step toward the family’s other goal — getting an injunction to stop distribution of the hit song until Marvin gets a writer’s credit … and, of course, the family gets royalties.
And don’t forget … the family is also still deciding whether to file a separate suit over Pharrell’s “Happy.”
Do you think TIP should have to pay up because he was featured in the song??
