As the legal battle with Marvin Gaye’s estate continues for writing credit, the ongoing lawsuit locked onto “Blurred Lines” creators Pharrell and Robin Thicke has divulged some intimate knowledge on the artist’s earnings from the popular track. After Marvin Gaye’s family already unveiled that the recording process was largely credited to Pharrell, specific numbers have confirmed that, contrary to the public’s belief, the music industry is alive and well. According to Business Insider, Pharrell and Thicke split a healthy $5 million while T.I. gained $700,000 from sales of the song. Certainly nothing to shake a stick at, even if Interscope Records, Universal Music Group, and Star Trak earned a combined $16,675,690. As expected, this trial will continue to shock and awe all of us impartial onlookers so stay tuned for more as the battle continues.
