TMZ reports Drizzy Drake has filed his response to a lawsuit by a woman who claims her voice was used on “Marvin’s Room.”

Ericka Lee claims the rapper used her name without consent and further says Drake threatened her about dropping the lawsuit.

According to sources, Drake officially told the courts  “she consented to the use of her voice in the song ‘Marvin’s Room’ for no compensation.”

“He also says the two never had a romantic relationship, as she claims.”

Last month, Drake’s camp released this statement.

This claim is entirely without merit and our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct. Ericka Lee consented to the use of her voice in the song “Marvin’s Room” prior to its release. Lee asked only for the credit she received as “Syren Lyric Muse,” and she did not ask for any compensation. It was only after she retained a lawyer that there was a demand for payment.  Drake tried for months to resolve the matter amicably, and he now looks forward to being vindicated in court.”
