Zeola Gaye Denies ‘Blurred Lines’ Family Drama on HuffPost Live (Watch)

zeola gaye huffpost live

*Marvin Gaye’s younger sister Zeola Gaye visited HuffPost Live on Tuesday to discuss the supposed family rift over the $7.4 million Gaye’s wife and children won in the recent copyright infringement case over “Blurred Lines.”

Although Zeola’s vocals are featured on her brother’s hit song “Got To Give It Up,” she isn’t upset she didn’t receive any money from the verdict. The Daily Mail’s interview with Zeola and her sister Jeanne Gaye made it seem as though the siblings were looking for a share of the judgment.

“Neither myself nor my sister are feuding over the financial reward that my niece and nephew received from the lawsuit. Absolutely not. If anything, we are very happy. I was so happy that the lawsuit went into their favor,” Zeola told host HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd.

Zeola also said that her interview with the Daily Mail, which detailed a feud between the “penniless” sisters and their superstar brother’s ex-wife Jan, isn’t entirely accurate.

“I’m … deeply, deeply heartbroken, and I felt totally betrayed by the Daily Mail for taking [the interview] I did with them out of context,” she said. “I’m not living in poverty, I’m not penniless. I live comfortably within my means. And I was not expecting to be in that lawsuit, even though I’m on the record. I never felt that I was part of the lawsuit. … The lawsuit was for the kids, Marvin’s heirs. I’m not an heir. I’m a sibling.”

Zeola’s memories of recording “Got To Give It Up” with her late brother are better than any monetary compensation, she added.

“My reward came from just being able to record that with my brother,” she said.
