Legal Battle Heats Up Over Robin Thicke's Summer Smash,

The tiff between Robin Thicke and Marvin Gayes family appears to be intensifying.

One week after Thicke filed a lawsuit to protect his summer smash, “Blurred Lines, Gayes son, Marvin Gaye III is blasting the 36-year-old singer and threatening a lawsuit of his own.

“If you listen to the music,” Gaye says, I”m sure anyone will see the similarities clearly between what my father does and what Robin Thicke has been trying to do. He added, “What would he want to be protected from if he didn”t do anything”

As to whether the Gaye estate will be suing, Gaye III simply says, “My counsel is right now in the process of taking care of businessI”m here to uphold my father”s legacy.”

Thicke, along with “Blurred Lines” contributors T.I. and Pharrell Williams, says he was forced to file his suit as a result of multiple adverse claims from alleged successors, referring to the Gaye estate and others.
