Drake sued ex girlfriend
Drake sued ex girlfriend Drake's ex wants credit for song, A woman who claims to be the ex-girlfriend of rapper Drake, 25,is reportedly suing him over one of his hit songs  The woman claims the two agreed to work on the song together and split the earnings She also says her voice is featured in a phone call in the song She's reportedly suing for co-writing credit.

Drake's ex-girlfriend, whose voice is featured on the popular Take Care track, is now suing Drake over royalties.

Drake's ex, Ericka Lee, filed a lawsuit in California federal court claiming that she and Drake worked on "Marvin's Room" together and were supposed to split the profits.

Apparently, Ericka hasn't gotten paid and now Drake has a "case of the ex" problem.Last year, Drake allegedly agreed to work with Lee on "Marvin's Room" and split the proceeds. 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. "Plaintiff's contribution is highly significant to the overall work," says the complaint. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Drake’s supposed ex-girlfriend Ericka Lee is suing him for not sharing co-writing royalties on his 2011 single “Marvin’s Room.” In a lawsuit filed yesterday in California federal court, Lee claims the voice heard over the phone saying Are you drunk right now? on “Marvin’s Room” is hers, and that she and Drake dated and traded lyrics for more than a year. She says Drake initially agreed to collaborate on “Marvin’s Room” and split its profits, and that he sent her texts acknowledging her contributions to the completed track—”U basically made that song”—before their relationship went sour at summer’s end.

Lee first filed a complaint against Drake last July. She hired a lawyer in November and claims that after doing so, Drake offered her a small percentage of the song’s publishing royalties and a $50,000 payout. Lee’s current suit seeks additional rewards and demands a judge declare her the track’s co-writer.
