Drake's Ex-Girlfriend Wants Credit For Writing His Hit Marvin's Room

Give credit where credit is due, but if there is any truth behind a lawsuit against Drake, the rapper doesn't really like to do that.

A woman named Ericka Lee dated the hitmaker from 2010-2011 and says she helped him write his hit single Marvin's Room. She was reportedly offered $50,000 by Drake "to go away and not file a lawsuit against him," instead of given a credit as a co-writer.

Well, now she's suing for that credit, along with unspecified damages, attorney's fees and punitive damages after alleging in court documents:

"They traded poems, song lyrics and discussed untertaking creative projects together. Lee candidly shared her life story and creative ideas with Drake and trusted him as a confidant, lover and friend."

To make her case, she's even got text messages from the music star which appear to recognize she had a part in writing the song, reading things like, "U basically made that song," and "it's s**t without you."

So far the song sold over half a million downloads, while accumulating 38 million views on YouTube.

What's the deal, Drake? Did you screw this young lady over or is she just pissed that you dumped her?

    I'm sure he did offer some money to keep her quiet, but on the other hand.. I think I'd be a little butt hurt too if Drake dumped me. D=
