Inneresting…

Blurred Lines may have been the most misogynistic song of 2013, but it was also undoubtedly a moneymaker.

In fact, Robin Thicke's date rape anthem No. 1 song earned him a staggering $5,658,214, while featured artist Pharrell walked away with a measly $5,153,457.

And while the song saw a lot of profit for Paula Patton's ex, that may not be the case for long!

Awkward! Paula Patton Will Be Called To Testify In Robin Thicke's Legal Battle With Marvin Gaye's Son!

Well, this is awkward!

According to court documents, Paula Patton will be called to testify in Robin Thicke's lawsuit with Marvin Gaye III over the song Love After War.

[ Related: Paula Filed For Divorce From Robin! ]

Paula co-wrote the hit with her ex, Robin, and Marvin is pissed because he thinks it's a rip-off of his dad's After the Dance.

Unfortunately, this isn't the only song the two men are warring over — Gaye's namesake thinks Blurred Lines is suspiciously similar to Got to Give It Up.

Considering Thicke attended Patton's holiday party this year, we think the exes will peacefully work this legal matter out.

So, would YOU testify on the behalf of an ex?

So, in case you missed it and/or forgot, Robin Thicke and Pharrell are being sued by Marvin Gaye's estate because their super 'rapey' song Blurred Lines sounds like Got To Give It Up.

Well, not only are court proceedings and such underway, but Robin's deposition from April has been uncovered by The Hollywood Reporter and what they found out is not pretty.

Like the fact that Robin 'didn't do a sober interview' that whole year because of his 'drug and alcohol problem.'

Looks like his Blurred Lines are about to become clearer to a judge!

In August, Robin Thicke and Pharrell filed a preemptive lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family, telling them to slow their role with copyright infringement claims!

Unfortunately, the iconic singer's living parts just want to Give It To You, Robin—in the form of a court case!

The famjam filed a counterclaim yesterday, that alleges Thickeyy copied both "Got to Give It Up" (for "Blurred Lines") and "After the Dance" (for "Love After War").

The suit highlights multiple interviews where the seksi singer admits Marvin's singles provided inspiration, even addressing how critics compared the songs similar sounds!

DING DING DING!

It's about to get musically bloody all up in this ring!

We can't wait for the courthouse TKO to play out in full!

P.S. Want to hear the songs they're suing over?!

Robin Thicke Offered To Give Marvin Gaye's Family His Thick, 6…Figure Settlement Offer Before Suing!

Filed under: Music MinuteRobin Thicke

In the immortal words of Marvin Gaye, "what's going on?!"

Last week, we reported on how we heard through the grapevine about the impending lawsuit between Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and T.I., and Marvin Gaye's family who claim that Blurred Lines was plagiarized from Marvin's Got to Give it Up!

Now, it's come out that Robin's legal team apparently took the song's advice, and gave it up themselves, offering a 6-figure settlement to the Gaye family.

Thicke was probably like "I know you want it," but the Gaye family rejected it!

Only then did Robin say, "let's get it on" to a lawsuit over whether or not Blurred Lines infringes on Got to Give it Up!

Until the lawsuit is decided one way or another, ch-ch-check out this cool mash-up of the two songs…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Robin Thicke, Pharrell & T.I. Defend The Blurred Lines Of A Lawsuit From Marvin Gaye's Family!

Filed under: Music MinutePharrellLegal MattersRobin ThickeT.I.

robin thicke pharrell ti sued over blurred lines

You know the song of the summer isn't really the song of the summer if there isn't some dramz involved!

And Blurred Lines has got buckets full of dramz because Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. are being sued over it!

The boyz aren't being sued over the controversy attached to the summer hit, instead it's the alleged similarities it has to some of Marvin Gaye's work that is stirring the pot of boiling trouble.

Marvin's family and Bridgeport Music, which owns some of Funkadelic's work, claim the song sounds an awful lot like two songs already out there. They not only claim Blurred Lines has the same "feel" and "sound" of Marvin's Got to Give It Up, but they also claim it's similar to Funkadelic's Sexy Ways!

But the boyz of summer aren't giving in just like that. They've apparently responded to the lawsuit and commented:
