Drake - Drake's Rep Responds To Marvin's Room Suit

Drake's representative has fired back at what sources are calling a "frivolous lawsuit" over a phone chat recording in the rapper's hit song Marvin's Room.
Ericka Lee, who claims to be Drake's ex-girlfriend, is suing the hitmaker for cash she insists she is owed for allowing the hip-hop star to use her voice on the record.
She claims it was her voice on the other end of the phone call in the heartbreak hit, and now she wants the hip-hop heart-throb to pay up.
Filing suit in Los Angeles on Thursday (02Feb12), Lee alleges she was asked to record the song's hook and its famous opening monologue, but the hitmaker simply listed her as Syren Lyric Muse.
Drake's spokeswoman has now responded, insisting the claim is "entirely without merit", adding, "Our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct."
The rep continues, "Ericka Lee consented to the use of her voice in the song Marvin’s Room prior to its release. Lee asked only for the credit she received as Syren Lyric Muse, and she did not ask for any compensation. It was only after she retained a lawyer that there was a demand for payment.
"Drake tried for months to resolve the matter amicably, and he now looks forward to being vindicated in court."
