Marvin Gaye ‘s kids feel that “Blurred Lines” crossed a few legal boundaries.
Two of the late singer’s grown children have filed a lawsuit against Robin Thicke , Pharrell Williams and fellow producer Clifford Harris Jr. , alleging that their superlatively popular summer jam wrongfully borrowed from their father’s song “Got to Give It Up,” and that Thicke’s “Love After War” ripped off Gaye’s “After the Dance.”
Siblings Frankie and Nona Gaye state in their suit that the defendants are guilty of the “blatant copying of a constellation of distinctive and significant compositional elements of Marvin Gaye’s classic No. 1 song,” according to documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.
