Ed Sheeran Sued For $100M Over ‘Let’s Get It On’ / ‘Thinking Out Loud’ Similarities | hypebot

image from celebrityaccess.comStructured Asset Ales, a part owner of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” is suing Ed Sheeran for $100 million after being blocked from a similar lawsuit brought by other owners.

Both lawsuits say Sheeran copied parts of Gaye’s song for his hit “Thinking Out Loud” – which seems quite possible considering Sheeran has been known to switch from one song to the other in concert.

A lawyer for Structured Asset Sales said the new lawsuit was necessary because a judge refused to let the company join a 2016 lawsuit by the family of a cowriter of Gaye’s song, according to the Associated Press.

A lawyer for Sheeran and other defendants have sent a letter to a judge saying both lawsuits are baseless.
