Fabian gets lawsuit from Marley family

Reggae singer and self-proclaimed son of Bob Marley Fabian is now facing a lawsuit from the Marley family following his refusal to portray himself as the legendary singer’s son.

The Bob Marley Foundation and 56 Hope Road Music Limited have filed a lawsuit in the Commercial Court against Fabian Marley.

The Bob Marley Foundation controls the rights to the Bob Marley name in Jamaica, while 56 Hope Road Music controls the rights to the name in the rest of the world.

Suffice it to say Fabian The Truth (as he now calls himself) doesn’t have a leg to stand on as in a recent report the DNA test has proven without a doubt that he is not Bob Marley’s son.

And if that were not enough, his siblings and mother also came out publicly saying that they don’t know where he got the idea that he was Bob’s son. One sister said she thought he would have dropped “this foolishness” long time.

In the documents filed in court on Wednesday, the companies are seeking an injunction to prevent Fabian Marley from using the Bob Marley name or associating himself or any of his business activities with Bob Marley’s name or image.

The court is also being asked to order Fabian Marley to stop using the name Marley and to change his last name.

They are also seeking damages for Fabian using the Marley name for personal gains.

Fabian – born Oniel Stanford changed his name by deed poll in 2012.
