Drake's rep responds to royalty lawsuit claim from ex-girlfriend
Drake's representatives have commented on a lawsuit filed against the hip hop star by his ex-girlfriend Ericka Lee.
The lawsuit refers to Drake's track 'Marvin's Room', in which Lee is said to have recorded the "hook" as well as an opening monologue. However, Lee claims that she is due royalties for her apparent role in the track.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Drake's representatives dismissed the lawsuit - with their client looking forward to being "vindicated in court" over the dispute. They said:
"This claim is entirely without merit and our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct. 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."
