Ed Sheeran being sued for £76m for allegedy ripping off Marvin Gaye's song.

According to the legal document lodged in New York the british star's 2014 track copies the "melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, base line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping" of Gaye's 1973 song.


The claim has been brought by a company called Structured Asset Sales (SAS), which owns part of the copyright of Gaye's song.

Gaye co-wrote the track alongside Edward Townsend in 1973. Townsend died in 2003 but the SAS bought one-third of the copyright.

Sheeran, 27, has already faced legal action over the track after the heirs of Townsend also said "Thinking Out Loud" copied "Let's Get It On". He has denied those allegations

The award winning album X which features Sheeran's song sold more than 15 million copies.
