A son of late reggae producer Vincent Chin is suing his father's widow over the rights to his music legacy.

Clive Chin says more than 1,100 songs are being licensed by Vincent's V.P. Music Group without permission.

According to editors at the New York Post, he is seeking $3 million (£1.9 million) from his stepmother Patricia and three other music companies, claiming they "knowingly tried to scam him".

Patricia has countered the allegations by insisting she inherited the rights to the music library as part of her "marital estate".

Vincent passed away in 2003 after his health deteriorated due to diabetes.
