Marvin Gaye's family wants to halt all sales of 'Blurred Lines'

Posted on

Was 2013's must-hate-watch video a sendup of the degradation of women, or a fresh example of the same? The most damning evidence wasn't the white…

After Marvin Gaye’s children won their long-running “Blurred Lines” lawsuit yesterday against Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I., the Gaye heirs’ lawyer wants to halt all sales of the song.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, the Gayes’ lawyer, Richard Busch, said: “We’ll be asking the court to enter an injunction prohibiting the further sale and distribution of ‘Blurred Lines’ unless and until we can reach an argument with those guys on the other side about how future monies that are received will be shared…. We’ll be doing that in about a week or so.”

Representatives for Thicke, Williams, and T.I. did not immediately respond to EW‘s request for comment.
