Soul legends' sons in legal battle
The sons of soul legends Marvin Gaye and [ab]Lou Rawls[/b] have engaged in a legal battle over a dog attack.

Lou Rawls Jnr claims he was bitten by “four large dogs” during a visit to the house of Marvin Gaye III in 2005.

The claim, filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court last week, says Rawls Jnr suffered: “loss of blood and tearing of flesh”.

It goes on to say that Rawls Jnr claimed the dogs “bit, clawed and physically and mentally injured” him, giving rise to “fear of disease”.

Neither have given a statement, reports the BBC.
