Robin Thicke Admits He Didn't Write "Blurred Lines" . . . And He Was Drunk and High When He Said He Did
As you probably know, ROBIN THICKE and PHARRELL WILLIAMS are being sued by the estate of MARVIN GAYE, which claims that "Blurred Lines" is a rip-off of Marvin's "Got to Give It Up".
Well, in a deposition from earlier this year that was just released, Robin says he had NOTHING to do with the writing of "Blurred Lines" . . . even though he'd said in numerous interviews that he did, and that Marvin Gaye was an influence.
In the deposition, he admitted that he was THERE when it was written, but he said it was all Pharrell. He said, quote, "I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit.
"So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was . . . I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song."
Thicke also said he had a DRUG AND ALCOHOL PROBLEM at the time , and it was an issue every time he did an interview last year."
Thicke was also asked during the deposition if he's an honest person. He answered, quote, "No. That's why I'm separated . . . I told my wife the truth. That's why she left me."
