Marvin Gaye's family has accused Pharrell Williams of perjuring himself in court during the 2015 copyright trial for "Blurred Lines."

In a motion filed on Friday in California, Gaye's family has taken issue with a November GQ interview Williams did with the producer Rick Rubin. During their conversation, Williams discussed his music-making process and the idea behind trying to elicit certain feelings for listeners through songs.

"For the most part, what we always try to do was reverse engineer the songs that did something to us emotionally and figure out where the mechanism is in there and, as I said to you before, try to figure out if we can build a building that doesn't look the same but makes you feel the same way," Williams said. "I did that in 'Blurred Lines' and got myself in trouble."

the ruling against Pharrell and RObin Thicke in the Blurred Lines infringement trial will stand Robin Thicke and Pharrell ’ s hit song was accused of lifting elements from Gaye ’ s “Got To Give It Up.” Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke perform during the Walmart 2014 annual shareholders meeting.

The " Blurred Lines " trial ended Tuesday when a jury declared that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams copied a song from Marvin Gaye to create their 2013 hit. Gaye ' s children were awarded nearly .4 million in the verdict.

According to court transcripts from the 2015 trial, Williams said during his deposition, "I did not go in the studio with the intention of making anything to feel like — or to sound like Marvin Gaye."

The motion claims that Williams's new comments from the GQ interview indicate that the producer perjured himself in court. The Gaye family is asking that these new revelations be taken into consideration by the court so that the family can be compensated for "attorneys' fees and costs," amounting to about $3.5 million that was originally denied to them.

Valve's Steam Controller is dead

  Valve's Steam Controller is dead Four years after Valve released its oddball Steam Controller, it's not making any more. The controller is on sale today for $5 -- that's 90 percent off its list price of $49.99 -- and a note in the Steam Store warns that there's a limited quantity remaining. Once those controllers are gone, Valve doesn't plan to make more, The Vergereports. While most reviewers originally wrote the Steam Controller off as too weird, Valve sold over 500,000 in the first six months.

Representatives for Williams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But during his GQ interview, Williams was laudatory toward Gaye and said that the copyright trial "hurt" him.

"This was a freak situation that was meant to humble me, to teach me a lesson. And I think that lesson was just be very clear on what my intentions are and to just not assume that everyone understands the difference between rayon and silk," Williams told Rubin. "I made rayon, [Marvin Gaye] made silk."
