Drake Settles "Marvin's Room" Lawsuit In Court
TMZ reports that the pair, who had been arguing over song credit and royalties issues over the track, settled the issue in court on February 2. While an agreement was made, it's unclear if Drake gave Lee any back pay.
As previously reported, Drake and Lee had allegedly been in a romantic relationship from 2010-2011, during which she assisted the rap star on the song. She had claimed that she co-authored the song when the suit was originally filed. Drake's team had offered her a two per cent royalty, but Lee had asked for more. She also rejected the rapper's offer of four to five percent with an additional $50,000 payout, presumably seeking out half of the royalties. Drake later responded that he looked forward to being "vindicated in court."
