Pharrell Williams' Rep Releases Statement on 'Blurred Lines' Verdict

A representative for Pharrell Williams is speaking out after he and Robin Thicke lost a lawsuit filed by Marvin Gaye‘s family for copyright infringement.

The family said that “Blurred Lines” infringed upon the late singer’s 1977 song “Got to Give It Up” and now the artists must pay Gaye‘s family $7.3 million.

“While we respect the judicial process, we are extremely disappointed in the ruling made today, which sets a horrible precedent for music and creativity going forward,” a spokesperson for Pharrell told Rolling Stone. “Pharrell created ‘Blurred Lines’ from his heart, mind and soul and the song was not taken from anyone or anywhere else. We are reviewing the decision, considering our options and you will hear more from us soon about this matter.”
