Multiple sources are reporting that Ed Sheeran has been sued for 100 million dollars. The lawsuit claims that the singer ripped off Marvin Gaye in the making of one of his biggest songs.
TMZ- According to the lawsuit, Sheeran's song has the same melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bassline, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping as "Let's Get it On."
Who is suing him? Well this is where it is a little interesting and seems like a money grab more than anything else. The company Structured Asset Sales bought the rights to one third of the song when one of the writers passed away. The company therefore is claiming not only that Ed Sheeran ripped the song, but also that Let's Get It On is worth 300 million dollars!!!
Who do you think should win the case?
