Marvin Gaye’s Son Arrested For Assaulting Wife And Cousin

Marvin Gaye III


Marvin Gaye III, Marvin Gaye’s eldest son, was arrested on Friday for allegedly assaulting his wife and cousin and pointing a gun at them. According to TMZ, the incident occurred at his Los Angeles home on Thursday following an altercation over an earlier assault. For a while, the couple was said to be having problems.

Following the incident, police were called to the scene. However, they did not meet Marvin because he had driven away. The next day, Marvin surrendered to the Sheriff’s office. He was later arrested on charges of domestic violence and felony assault with a deadly weapon.


Marvin was eventually released after posting a $50,000 bond. An emergency protective order was also issued to prevent Gaye from entering the house or communicating with the family. Authorities returned to the house later and retrieved two firearms.

The two women’s lawyer stated that the incident had a negative impact on his clients and that the victims intend to fully cooperate with authorities.

Marvin Gaye and his wife Anna Gordy adopted him, according to PEOPLE. Denise Gordy, Anna’s niece, is Marvin’s biological mother.

According to the Daily Mail, Marvin revealed in 2013 that he was suffering from kidney failure and was looking for a donor for a transplant. Marvin Gaye, Marvin’s father and namesake, was the second of four children born to a church minister and a domestic worker. The “Prince of Soul” grew up singing in church with his father before being kicked out when he began singing secular music. Gaye went on to become one of Motown’s most influential figures, first as a producer and then as an artiste in the 1960s.

Gaye, who released several albums, received numerous accolades and honors both during his career and after his death. These include a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a Grammy Award for his 1982 chart-topping single Sexual Healing. In addition to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame in 1987.

On April 1, 1984, his life was cut short when his father, Marvin Gay Sr., shot him in their home during a fight.
