xx Marvin's Children
« Thread started on: Sep 3rd, 2009, 3:38pm »

After looking at that video post on Marvin's funeral, I couldn't help but think about Marvin's family he left behind and how the children are doing today financially. With Marvin not leaving a will behind, did any of his children benefit from his estate?

I think they are. When Marvin's publishings were sent to Pullman Bonds, I heard that the Gaye family had an amazing recoup. That's just what I heard so I guess they're benefiting from it.

Yea I think I read about that somewhere. Give Me a Sec and I'll find the Article.

Most of Marvin Gaye's songs (music & lyrics) are owned by his estate which consists of his children, Nona Gaye, Marvin Gaye III, and Frankie Gaye AKA (Bubby).


Here Is The Article From 2000:
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_2000_Sept_20/ai_65321162/

I Know that Nona has made a name for herself as a Actress and Singer, Marvin III is a music producer, not sure about what Bubby is doing, anybody here got a clue?

This I wasn't too sure of but it triggered my memory back to a post on the Motown Forever board, because if the kids own the music and lyrics then why would Marvin III need to sell his dad's Hollywood Hills home for financial support and Anna's care??

Marvin's old studios (the one he did I Want You) is also used as a studio/hangout. I don't know if it's profitable but I think it's called Marvin's Room.

I saw a picture of Jan and Nolan sitting underneath a mural in the studio recently.

EDIT: here's the pic

Nolan looks just like his mother and grandfather. Nolan's going to be 13 this year, I wonder how he looks now.

Marvin Pentz Gaye IV, Marvin III's child, will be 15 on April 1. Isn't it ironic Marvin III's eldest son was born 11 years after his grandfather was shot by his great-grandfather? Eerie!

I think Marvin III has another child that he had out of wedlock according to a report I read when Marvin III's money troubles made headline news early this year.

Nona's still acting here and there last I heard. As for Frankie, no one knows of him, he's very quiet and private. Shockingly enough all of Marvin's three children seem to be very private, we still don't know much about them. Maybe it's the way Janis raised the latter two. Marvin III is a different story tho.

It's a rumor, no one knows for certain.

I do know that she was in a relationship with Chico DeBarge (btw I love Debarge!!!) and Debarge fans know of the drug abuse involved with this family. However they broke up a Short Time ago. She could've had a drug problem around that time because Chico admitted to being addicted to Heroin and pain killers around the time they dated. But no one knows for sure if she was addicted as well. It's pretty much just word of mouth/rumors.

And we know how private Marvin's children are. I assume she's doing well. We know Marvin III is going through some problems while Frankie keeps to himself. That's probably the most private of the Gaye members.

Bubby (Frankie) keeps so much to himself that it makes me wonder if he's Okhuh?? I haven't seen anything except childhood pics.. I hope Nona is doing well. I know she "struggles with the demons." She is such a beautiful girl, so much like Marvin. I pray the lord will keep all of the kids safe and I pray they have sufficient resources. I guess Marvin III will always be OK because he has the Gordy's.

I saw a grown Bubby on one of Marvin's documentaries. I think he was around 22 by that time (1998 or 1999) and he had blond hair when I saw him. He got his father's eyes, lips and mouth for real. Talked so sensitive.

Earlier this year (I think), I saw a picture of Bubby playing ball on the Marvin Facebook page.

Nona as far as I know heads that page. I wonder if it's updated yet.

Of course we know of Marvin III's problems with his health.
