SMOKEY AND CLAUDETTE HAD DISPUTES

In their hay days, Smokey and Claudette Robinson were part of the Motown singing group, "The Miracle." Claudette later left so she could face motherhood while her former husband followed suit as a solo artist.

The duo's feud started after Smokey moved to reclaim the rights over his songs, "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" and "My Girl."

Claudette Robinson wasn't having it as she demanded a 50 percent gain of her ex's recovery. Their case was ruled under the 1976 Copyright Act, with both parties going back and forth to courts.
