Drake Sued By Ex-Girlfriend Ericka Lee Over “Marvin’s Room” Song!

Drake’s ex-girlfriend, whose voice is featured on the popular Take Care track, is now suing Drake over royalties. And Lee says she has the text messages to prove that the rapper acknowledged her significant contribution. Ericka, filed the lawsuit in California federal court claiming that she and Drake worked on “Marvin’s Room” together and were supposed to split the profits.
Apparently, Ericka hasn’t gotten paid and now Drake has a “case of the ex” problem.

Last year, Drake allegedly agreed to work with Lee on “Marvin’s Room” and split the proceeds. Lee says she was asked to record the song’s “hook” as well as the opening monologue that would serve as the thematic framework for a song about Drake’s yearning for an ex-girlfriend and how his fame interfered with his love life. “Plaintiff’s contribution is highly significant to the overall work,” says the complaint. 
Drake has given Lee credit on the album as a “vocalist” on the song under the alias “Syren Lyric Muse,” but that didn’t seem to fix his copyright problem. 
Lee headed down to the U.S. copyright office stating: “My works and voice are used on this work.” Cash Money fired back at Lee’s claims with the U.S. Copyright Office by claiming Ericka Lee as an “employee for hire.” 
Nonetheless, Drake’s ex is still pissed and she wants more than the 2 percent of publishing royalties Drake was offering. 
Lee hired a lawyer, which allegedly caused Drake to make threatening phone calls. “What the f–k is your problem?” he said to her, according to the complaint, then offering her “4-5%” of the publishing money plus a $50,000 payout to go away. 
Lee busted out the big guns and hired Neville Johnson, a lawyer who previously sued Drake over unauthorized use of Playboy Enterprises on “Best I Ever Had.”
