Motown star Marvin Gaye had a lot of dark secrets, we will discuss one. In 1963 Gaye married the elder sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy, Anna Gordy (17 years older than Gaye). During his marriage to Gordy, Gaye impregnated Gordy’s then 16 year old niece Denise. A few days after her 17th birthday, Denise gave birth to her and Gaye’s son Marvin Gaye III. During Denise’s pregnancy, Anna Gordy pretended to be pregnant and adopted the baby passing it off as her own. What a coverup! There is also a blind item rumor that Gaye was a serial killer and this was covered up by Motown as well. Sheesh!
