Marvin Gaye’s son Marvin III hinted that the estate of the late R&B singer would take legal action against Robin Thicke over his hit song “Blurred Lines.”
In an interview on TMZ Live Wednesday, Marvin Gaye III told the gossip site that, “There’s a way to business and a way to not do business.
“We’re not happy with the way that he went about doing business let alone suing us for something where he clearly got his inspiration from at the least,” Gaye said, flanked by his wife, Wendy, and a family spokesman. “That’s caused my family a lot of duress.”
As we reported, 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.
“Yes, if you listen to the music, I’m sure anyone will see the similarities between what my father does and what Robin Thick has been trying to do,” Gaye’s son told TMZ.
It’s so funny, I just talked about this with my girls (Kia & Toni) last night on our blog talk radio, and I knew this was coming.
