Did Ed Sheeran rip off a Marvin Gaye song? Plus, why do Ellen and Portia LIKE their divorce rumors? And how did celebrities spend their first big paychecks? These stories and more in today's Hollywood Stories! 

Ed Sheeran is being sued again. This time for allegedly stealing from Marvin Gaye on his track 'Thinking Out Loud.' A guy named Ed Townsend co-wrote 'Let's Get It On' with Gaye, but he died in 2003. So his family is already suing Sheeran. The new lawsuit is being filed by Structured Asset Sales. They claim they own a protion of rights to the Marvin Gaye song and that he ripped it off. Listen to both and see what you think...
