*Two of Marvin Gaye’s children have filed a countersuit to Robin Thicke’s claim that “Blurred Lines” is not a rip-off of their father’s classic single “Got to Give it Up.”
According to TMZ, the countersuit accuses Robin of changing his opinion about the origin of the song.
In documents filed today (Oct. 30) Nona Gaye and Frankie Christian Gaye point to Robin’s interviews with Billboard and GQ, where he admitted Marvin’s “Got to Give It Up” was one of his favorite songs of all time, and he wanted to “make something like that, something with that groove.”
Nona and Frankie’s suit is a response to Thicke’s filed in August, in which he sought to preemptively get a court to rule that “Blurred Lines” was not a copyright violation.
The Gaye kids also cite the below clip TMZ shot with Thicke after his lawsuit, where he denied thinking of Marvin Gaye when he wrote “Blurred Lines.”
