Lenny Kravitz has dropped out of the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic, Sexual Healing, less than a month before the planned start of filming. Industry insiders comment that the crooner’s son, Marvin Gaye III may behind Kravitz’s abrupt decision to exit the project stage left.
Gaye reportedly criticized the executives casting choice saying, “The producers and directors of this film are very wrong … They don’t even know the whole story.”
Kravitz will be replaced by stage veteran and former star of ‘Law & Order’ Jesse L. Martin.
