The family of Marvin Gaye has won its lawsuit brought against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for the song “Blurred Lines,” garnering the family $7.3 million in a game-changing verdict. Apparently, the family isn’t just stopping there as they also are seeking to block sales and further distribution of the Thicke song.

The lawsuit stemmed from allegations that the song closely resembled a Gaye song “Got to Give It Up,” something both Thicke and Williams denied. For their part, Thicke and Williams have every intention of appealing verdict, their attorney says.

Based on this lawsuit, there’s a few artists who may want to double check their source material.

Dang Angie! This week it was reported that GRAMMY-nominated R&B singer Angie Stone,53, was arrested after physically assaulting her daughter with a metal stand, resulting in her daughter, Diamond Stone, losing some of her front teeth.

Police reports show that a confrontation escalated when Stone demanded that her daughter, 30, control her children who were allegedly running around the singer’s home.

At the moment it seems like she-said, she-said with Angie Stone claiming her daughter threw the first punch and Diamond Stone saying her mother initiated the confrontation. For now, it seems like Angie is the only one in the hot seat and facing a domestic aggravated assault charge.  Good luck Angie!
