I NEVER Threatened that Chick

from 'Marvin's Room' Song

2/4/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Drake is finally firing back at the disgruntled female vocalist featured on his hit song “Marvin’s Room” ... telling TMZ he NEVER threatened the woman when she complained about payment.

Earlier this week -- a woman named Ericka Lee filed a lawsuit against Drake, in which she claimed she co-wrote the song but never got proper credit.

In her suit, Lee claims Drake warned her that if she didn't back off about payment ... he had "people" who  would take care of “issues like her.”

But Drake's rep says, "This claim is entirely without merit and our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct."

The rep also claims Lee consented to have her voice used in “Marvin’s Room” without compensation ... adding, "Drake tried for months to resolve the matter amicably, and he now looks forward to being vindicated in court."

In her suit, Lee claims she and Drake were engaged in a romantic relationship for more than a year between 2010 and 2011... but sources tell us the rapper is adamant there was never a relationship between the two.

Man half the world wouldn't even know who these people are if TMZ didn't put them up here and promote them endlessly which makes one wonder if they're actually just not paying for the service, ya know? It's like "OK Kim, you can go with the triple exposure plan where we raid your house with cameras twice a week, follow you out on the weekends and plant 10 stories a month on the website for 400 g's a month"...that's how this is you can BET>

For those of you saying that nobody knows who Drake is, hes on of the top rappers today so anyone who keeps up with the rap scene, which is most of today's american youth, knows his name. Just because YOU dont know who someone is, it doesnt automatically make them a nobody. I gave this chick the benefit of the doubt until she mentioned the relationship stuff. Its like she wants her 15 minutes of fame whatever the cost may be.

Not An Arrogant American

Do your research before sounding like a dueche...

We also dont run our mouths for no reason, learn about our fellow countries in school and supply our own (as well as your) natural resources instead of robbing them from other countries...

Drake is a liar tho...that's well established. & this is the SECOND time an ex said he threatened them.

He also threatened a tattoo artist in LA (the guy stood his ground too so Drake sent security to try to scare him). Then he tried to make veiled threats towards rapper Common until Common popped him in his mouth on a diss track causing Drake to run for the hills (LOL)

This dude better watch himself and keep it cute before he turns into Chris Brown.

@Jamin - Well, at least our educational system is top notch, along with our health care. The US as a developed nation has one of the worst infant mortality rates compared to some underdeveloped nations! Clearly, your lacking in some proper education yourself! Your grammar is terrible by the way, "witch", in your sentence, should be "which". Go read a book!

Ohhh no, kind of sounds like some girl trying to get her 15 min like always...

I really don't think that Drake would have had a problem getting some other girl that would have gladly just done it for free...
