Sheeran Faces New $100m Lawsuit For ‘copying’ Marvin Gaye Classic
Ed Sheeran has a $100 million lawsuit attached to his name and the song “Thinking Out Loud.” He is being accused of ripping off the Marvin Gaye song “Let’s Get it On.”
The lawsuit, filed last week in 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, claims Sheeran’s song “Thinking Out Loud” has the “same melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bassline, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping” as Gaye’s classic hit, TMZ reported on Thursday. The copyright infringement claim was filed by Structured Asset Sales, which owns a piece of the copyright.
And they want him to cough up $100 MILLION.
Sheeran is denying these claims.
