Young Money star Drake is being sued by a woman claiming to be the famously lovelorn rapper's ex-girlfriend. Ericka Lee, who is credited in the liner notes to Drake's 2011 hit "Marvin's Room" as a vocalist, is suing under the claim that she is entitled to more of the song's royalties.
She initially filed suit in July of last year, and Cash Money filed a counterclaim six weeks later.
“Drake allegedly agreed to work with Lee on ‘Marvin’s Room’ and split the proceeds,” says a source with The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
