Drake’s Rep Responds to “Marvin’s Room” Lawsuit

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.”

Lee, who reveals herself to be the female speaking on the viral Take Care single, filed the lawsuit Thursday in California federal court. stating that the two had a romantic and business relationship between earl 2010 and mid-2011. She  had saved text messages Drizzy supposedly sent her, saying, “U basically made that song” and “It’s sh*t without you.” The Toronto native also offered Lee 2 percent of publishing royalties.

She also claimed that Drizzy made threatening calls after she decided to hire lawyer Neville Johnson, who previously filed a lawsuit against the Toronto star on behalf of Playboy Enterprises after Drake supposedly used an unauthorized recording sample for “Best I Ever Had.” Lee also reported that after “Marvin’s Room” release, they split ways and their relationship ended ugly.

Sounds like a classic case of exes trying to exploit their former beaus. [Hi Adele.] Looks like Lee might be the one to do better now.

While news of the lawsuit spread on the Internet like Drizzy’s sophomore album leak, Drake kept it trill in Indianapolis last night, performing at ESPN The Magazine’s “NEXT” party.

  1. I would like to add when you do not already have an insurance policy otherwise you do not belong to any group insurance, you could well reap the benefits of seeking the assistance of a health broker. Self-employed or people who have medical conditions usually seek the help of a health insurance broker. Thanks for your article.
