“Blurred Lines” Lawsuit Moves Forward, Pharrell And Robin Thicke Not Out Of The Woods

It looks like Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s legal troubles have only just begun.

As previously reported, Williams and Thicke filed a lawsuit against Marvin Gaye’s estate after the family’s initial complaint that the popular track copied parts of Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It up.” Marvin’s family then filed a countersuit, claiming that the producer had a “Marvin Gaye fixation” and that he steals music.

On Thursday, Thick and Williams’ request for a summary judgement was denied, which means the case will go to trail. According to The LA Times, U.S. District Court Judge John Kronstadt stated that Gaye’s family “have made a sufficient showing that elements of ‘Blurred Lines’ may be substantially similar to protected, original elements of ‘Got to Give It Up.'”

In a suit filed in September, reps of The Voice coach and Robin argue that “there are no similarities between plaintiffs’ composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements” and that the “plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else’s composition.”

And so the debate continues. A trial has been set for Feb. 10, 2015.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
