‘Blurred Lines’ Ruled a Rip-Off! Break Bread Pharrell & Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke’s mega-hit “Blurred Lines” ripped off Marvin Gaye’s own #1 hit “Got to Give It Up” — that’s the ruling that just came down from the jury in downtown L.A.

Robin and the song’s producer Pharrell Williams are now on the hook for $7.3 million to Marvin’s family because the jury found they infringed on the Gaye copyright for his 1977 hit.

The jury ruled T.I. — who raps on ‘Blurred’ — was NOT responsible for the copyright infringement.

As we previously reported … Marvin Gaye’s kids first sued Thicke back in 2013 for allegedly ripping off the song. “Blurred Lines” was #1 on Billboard for 12 weeks that same year.

T.I got lucky! Parrell is NOT so “Happy”!
