The hit FOX television series, Empire is going to be hit with another ownership and theft of idea lawsuit. This latest lawsuit is from late music icon Marvin Gaye‘s son, Marvin Gaye III who says the idea of the series was stolen from him while he tried to get sponsors and producers for the idea.
Marvin Gaye III who seems to be a big fan of lawsuits after just being successful with one against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke as regards to “Blurred Lines,” is eager to go back to court again.
Gaye’s lawyer believes there is a similarity in the show with the one his client had. He said, “We understand that three things can’t be hidden for long: the Sun, the Moon and the Truth!”
Let’s hope Marvin Gaye III is unable to sing his way through this lawsuit successfully or else Fox and Lee Daniels would have to cough out a lot of money. Just ask Pharell and Robin Thicke.
Anyway, we can’t wait for the series to return to our TV screens next month.
