Marvin Gaye’s Son Begs Lenny Kravitz Not To Play His Dad


Marvin Gaye‘s son  is not having it!! Gaye says he does not want the rocker Lenny Kravitz to play his father on the big screen. Kravitz will play Gaye in the biopic “Sexual Healing” (working title), which is said to follow the legend’s life in the 80s when he battled drug abuse and depression – up until his father shot and killed him in 1984…

Gaye III tells TMZ  “The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful … [They’re] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don’t even know the whole story.”

Marvin’s son says he and Kravitz were schoolmates and remain friends to this day, so he wants to “talk to him about why he would do this.”

Gaye III says he and other family members are meeting with lawyers to try to stop production, and added, “I would hope [Lenny] doesn’t have any idea that we are against this film being done.”
