Drake sued by alleged ex-girlfriend over ‘Marvin’s Room’ royalties

3 Feb

A woman claiming to be the ex-girlfriend of the hip-hop/R&B star says she is the person on the other end of the phone call heard on his hit “Marvin’s Room,” which was released last year.

Now Ericka Lee is suing Drake for excluding her from co-writer royalties she says she earned through their collaboration on the hit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lee claims in the suit that Drake agreed to work on the song and split the proceeds. She says she was supposed to record the song’s hook and an opening monologue.

But six weeks later, Drake and his record company changed their tune and instead Drake texted her offering 2% of song royalties, according to the report.

The two, by then, had split and Drake seemed angry when Lee hired a lawyer.
