Marvin Gaye III claims he registered the premise for a show called Diamonds & Ballads with the Writers Guild of America in 2010. The show was based on the lives of his family – and the family of Motown singer and producer Berry Gordy – and was a “black and hip” version of Dynasty and The Sopranos. He also claims to have pitched the idea to TV executives.
Gaye’s lawyer tells TMZ that he plans to file a lawsuit against the show’s co-creator Lee Daniels, and TV network Fox, among others. He adds, “We understand that three things can’t be hidden for long: the Sun, the Moon and the Truth!” The Gaye family successfully sued Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams over their hit track Blurred Lines in March 2015, and were awarded $7.4 million in damages.
