Gaye, 57, reportedly got into an argument with his wife and cousin, which may have been about a previous assault, with Gaye then pointing the weapon at his cousin.

He is then said to have driven off in his Corvette before police arrived on the scene in Calabasas, having been called at around 8.05pm for a ‘family dispute.’

When officers arrived, they believed Gaye was still inside the home, and asked him to come outside, before neighbors informed them that Gaye had left.

Gaye III is the adopted son of legendary singer Marvin Gaye and his wife  Anna Gordy Gaye – the pair were wed from 1963-1977.

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

Denise has previously said she agreed to give birth to the child because her aunt was unable to conceive.

Gaye married his second wife, Janice in 1977 and they had two children, daughter Nona and son 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.

In 2015, the family of Marvin Gaye won a lawsuit against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for infringing his copyright on their mega hit – Blurred Lines.

Williams and Thicke were ordered to pay $7.4m in a groundbreaking copyright case in which a judge ruled that their hit Blurred Lines was a breach of Gaye’s copyright, using his track,  Got to Give it Up.
