TMZ: Marvin Gaye’s son is out for blood in his war with Robin Thicke, telling “TMZ Live” he resents Thicke’s lawsuit against the Gaye estate … and is strongly insinuating he plans to respond with legal action of his own. See interview below.

During a recent interview with TMZ, Marvin Gaye III said the family of the late R&B singer is “not happy with the way that [Robin Thicke] went about doing business let alone suing us for something where he clearly got his inspiration from at the least.”

Gaye’s son was referring Thicke’s countersuit, which he filed on August 15 with “Blurred Lines” co-writers Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris, Jr. In the legal documents, the trio claim the intent in producing the record “was to evoke an era.”

“In reality, the Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre…. The reality is that the songs themselves are starkly different,” it reads. source: Blackamericaweb
