He is then said to have fled in his Corvette before police arrived in Calabasas, where he had been called at around 8.05 p.m. for a ‘family dispute.’

Officers arrived and thought Gaye was still inside the house, so they asked him to come outside before neighbors informed them that Gaye had left.

Officers are said to have then met with Gaye’s relatives and taken a ‘assault report,’ in which Gaye is named as a suspect. It is unknown if anyone was hurt.

There have been no arrests, and the investigation is still ongoing. Wendy Gaye, Gaye’s wife, was seen being assisted by paramedics and police outside the home following the alleged incident.

Gaye III is the adopted son of Marvin Gaye and his wife Anna Gordy Gaye, who were married from 1963 to 1977.

Singer Marvin was 44 when he was shot and killed by his own father in 1984, while Anna, who was 17 years his senior, died in 2014 at the age of 92.

Denise Gordy, Anna’s niece, is Gaye III’s biological mother. Denise was only 16 years old when she gave birth to Gaye III.

Denise previously stated that she agreed to give birth to the child because her aunt could not conceive.

Gaye married his second wife, Janice, in 1977, and the couple had two children, Nona and Frankie.

Gaye III has largely kept out of the public eye but in 2013 revealed he was suffering from kidney failure and was seeking a donated organ for transplant.

He revealed he had been receiving dialysis for renal failure for three years and was  having trouble finding a suitable kidney for transplant.

He shared his condition publicly to help draw attention to the challenges blacks and Hispanics face in finding healthy organ donors.
