Drake Responds To “Marvin’s Room” Lawsuit, DENIES Dating Ericka Lee
Amid his legal woes, it’s business as usual for Drake, who headlined ESPN The Magazine’s 8th Annual NEXT Event in Indianapolis last night. Earlier this week, a woman named Ericka Lee filed a lawsuit against Drizzy, claiming that she co-wrote his hit single “Marvin’s Room” and never got paid for it. Now, Drizzy is firing back. A rep for the Canadian rapper says:
“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.”
Drake says he never threatened Lee and denies that there was a romantic relationship between the two.
