'Blurred Lines' verdict is in, Marvin Gaye's children to collect millions


The lines are no longer blurred. Nona Gaye, Frankie Gaye and Marvin Gaye III are about to cash in millions following a favorable verdict by a Los Angeles judge. The trio are children of the late soul crooner Marvin Gaye and the beneficiaries of his music rights who sued Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams in 2013 for infringing on the copyright of Gaye’s 1977 hit, “Got To Give It Up.”

The judge ruled that Thicke and WIlliams crossed the line and awarded $7.3m to the Gaye kids, following the success of the Grammy-nominate blockbuster “Blurred Lines,” which the children insisted copied their dad’s track.

“Right now, I feel free,” Nona Gaye tells reporters after the ruling. “Free from… Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told.”

“Blurred Lines” generated more than $16m in profits and made more than $5m for both stars.
