"By the mid-1970s Gaye and first wide Anna were engaged in open warfare. The fact Gaye was living with a much younger woman (Janice Hunter) and had already fathered a child with her certainly didn't help to mend fences. Fed up with the situation, Anna filed for divorce. Unfortunately for Gaye, the trappings of a rock star existence (multiple homes, lots of cars, expensive tastes in wine, women, and drugs left him almost bankrupt. Unable to cover Anna's demands for alimony and child support for their son Marvin III (the child was reportedly actually a result of an affair Gaye had with one of Anna's nieces), Gaye's lawyer suggested a settlement that would give her a $307,000 down payment based on guaranteed royalties and another $293,000 from sales of his next record. (Gaye died before paying Anne the balance.) Popular legend has it that Gaye's original plan was to release a lame album that would tank, leaving Anna with little in the way of royalties. That plan quickly fell apart when Gaye went into the studio. Exemplified by material like the in-your-face title track, 'I Met a Little Girl', 'When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You' and 'You Can Leave, But It's Going to Cost You' Gaye ended up recording an almost painful collection of autobiographical songs that reflected back on the marriage with Anna with plenty of finger pointing (the inner sleeve reflected a Monopoly-styled board game entitled 'Judgment' that included a man's hand giving a record album to an outstretched female hand) .
