Wednesday, September 17, 2014 – Singer-songwriter Robin Thicke, 37, has been dealing with a lot lately from his separation with actress wife Paula Patton to his lawsuit with the children of the late Marvin Gaye. They claim that Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and Atlanta-based rapper TI plagiarized at lease parts of Marvin Gaye’s 1977 ‘Got to Give It Up.’ in their hit song “Blurred Lines”
At first Robin Thicke denied any allegations but in a deposition obtained Tuesday. “The record would have happened with or without me,” Thicke said in the deposition. “I was just lucky enough to be there when he wrote it.” Thicke claims that he was too high on Vicodin and alcohol to write the hit song, that in fact it was Pharrell Williams who wrote most of the lyrics.
