Seriously Drake has some serious bad luck with the opposite sex, he is currently being sued by one of his ex-girlfriends over one of his hit songs. The ex claims to be the girl saying “Are you drunk right now?” and the other female recorded vocals in “Marvin’s Room.” According to Drizzy the girl agreed to work on the hook with him when they dated back in ’06.

Last year, Drake released a song, “Marvin’s Room,” that quickly went viral and prompted various remixes by fellow artists intrigued by the depiction of a young woman on a phone call as the rapper drunkenly croons, “You could do better.”
Now, Ericka Lee, revealing herself to be Drake’s ex-girlfriend, has stepped up, saying she was the voice on the other end of the phone call. The woman is now suing Drake for excluding her from sharing co-writer royalties on one of his biggest recent hits.
Lee filed the lawsuit on Thursday (Feb. 2) in California federal court claiming the two had a romantic and business partnership between early-2010 and mid-201. During the relationship, the two are said to have traded poems and song lyrics and discussed joint creative projects.
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.
