Seriously, if you think the last 24 hours has been rubbish for you, we think you may feel a little better after reading this.

First off in possible the worst day of Robin's life, his divorce from Paula Patton was granted. When the couple split, Robin was so desperate to win her back he even named his album after her – so we guess he’s pretty upset.

More news!

    But if that wasn’t enough, Marvin Gaye’s family have now decided to try and put a stop to his hit Blurred Lines…forever.

    Last week, Robin and Pharrell – who also sung on the track – were told they had to cough up £4.8 million each after a could ruled the track had copied parts of Marvin’s hit Got To Give It Up.

    And on Tuesday the family of Marvin filed an injunction in court to try and stop Blurred Lines from being copied, performed or distributed ever again.

    “With the digital age upon us, the threat of greater infringement looms for every artist,” Marvin’s family said in a statement.

    “It is our wish that our dad's legacy, and all great music, past, present, and future, be enjoyed and protected, with the knowledge that adhering to copyright standards assures our musical treasures will always be valued.”

    That’s a real headache, eh?
