Marvin Gaye’s sisters say that they haven’t received a dime from the $7.4 million settlement over the hit “Blurred Lines.”
Marvin’s sisters Zeola and Jeanne say that they are living, modestly, in apartments in Las Vegas. Jeanne says that Marvin’s ex-wife, Jan Gaye, could be possibly holding a grudge about Zeola’s 2011 tell all My Brother Marvin and will not give them any settlement money. Zeola said,
“His estate went to his heirs which we agree with — but Jan controls it all and that’s why we do not get anything. The bottom line is that they get everything and we don’t get a dime. We try and live with that, but it is difficult.”
I’m sure that they’ll get their money, eventually.
