Ed Sheeran is being sued for $100 million.

The 27-year-old singer has been accused of copying Marvin Gaye's classic hit 'Let's Get It On' in his track 'Thinking Out Loud' and has been hit by a lawsuit from Structured Asset Sales, who own part of the copyright to the late singer's 1973 track.

According to legal documents filed in New York, the company believe Ed's 2014 single rips off the "melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping" of Marvin's song.

The 'Lego House' hitmaker previously faced legal action over the song from the heirs of Edward Townsend - who co-wrote the song with Marvin - but denied the allegations.
