If you had any doubt that the Gaye family was just trying to get a quick buck suing Pharrell and Robin Thicke for “Blurred Lines,” you need look no further than Marvin Gaye’s sisters Zeola and Jeanne Gaye who are now upset that they won’t be seeing a dime from the $7.4 million dollar fortune Gaye’s ex wife and children will soon inherit.

The sisters told The Daily Mail that they haven’t received anything from the estate and they have actually been banned from performing any of Marvin’s music, even though Zeola is one of the womendoing the ad-libs for “Got to Give It Up.”

The drama started…or resurfaced shortly after the settlement when Jan Gaye, Marvin’s ex wife, accused the sisters of “picking on your brother’s bones” and dismissed their attempts to make peace.

Zeola and Jeanne, who are 69 and 78 respectively, say that though they played a huge role in their brother’s life, they are living in virtual poverty today.
