After 5 years, the highly publicized legal battle between the Marvin Gaye estate and Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams has ended.

According to CNN, the Gaye family has been awarded $5 million after originally accusing Thicke and Williams of copyright infringement back in 2013.

The pair has been ordered to pay $2.9 million jointly, while Thicke owes an additional $1.7 million and Williams’ publishing company More Water From Nazareth owes an additional $357k.

CNN also reports, the family will earn 50% of future royalties.
