Anna Gordy Gaye, the sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy and ex-wife of the late singer Marvin Gaye, has died. She was 92.

According to TMZ, sources close to the family revealed that Gordy Gaye died at her Los Angeles home from natural causes and was discovered by family members at around 3 a.m. Friday.

Following a 14-year union with the iconic crooner, Anna divorced Marvin Gaye in 1977. The public split inspired the recording of Gaye’s double album “Here, My Dear” — an album whose existence was mandated by the terms of the divorce settlement, which also required Marvin to pay royalties from the project toward Anna’s alimony.
