Marley Family Sues Entertainer Who Claimed He is Bob Marley’s Son

A DNA test carried out last month revealed that the entertainer Fabian Marley is not the son of reggae legend Bob Marley, despite his previous claims that Bob Marley is his biological father.

According to The Star, the Bob Marley Foundation currently has the rights to the Bob Marley name in Jamaica, while 56 Hope Road Music has the rights to the name in the rest of the world.

In the documents filed in court on Wednesday, the companies are seeking an injunction to prevent Fabian Marley from using the Bob Marley name or associating himself or any of his business activities with Bob Marley’s name or image.

The court is also being asked to order Fabian Marley to stop using the name Marley and to change his last name.


They are also seeking damages for Fabian using the Marley name for personal gains.

The court documents state that the defendant was named Oniel Stanford when he was born in 1968 and changed his name by deed poll in 2012.
