Robin Thicke files lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family in defense of 'Blurred Lines'
The Hollywood Reporter obtained a copy of the court documents, which read:
"Plaintiffs, who have the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies, reluctantly file this action in the face of multiple adverse claims from alleged successors in interest to those artists. Defendants continue to insist that plaintiffs' massively successful composition, 'Blurred Lines,' copies 'their' compositions."
The trio's "Blurred Lines" is standing strong at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of only eight male lead songs to reach double-digit success.
