After The Hollywood Reporter reported yesterday that Drake’s supposed ex-girlifriend Ericka Lee is suing the rapper for excluding her from co-writer royalties on the heartbreak hit “Marvin’s Room,” his rep has responded to the lawsuit.
“This claim is entirely without merit and our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct,” the spokesperson said. “Ericka Lee consented to the use of her voice in the song ‘Marvin’s Room’ prior to its release. Lee asked only for the credit she received as ‘Syren Lyric Muse,’ and she did not ask for any compensation. It was only after she retained a lawyer that there was a demand for payment. Drake tried for months to resolve the matter amicably, and he now looks forward to being vindicated in court.”
