It seems like everyday we learn something new about Robin Thicke that makes us hate him just a little more.
So what was today’s shocking discovery via Robin Roulette?
Apparently, the 37-year-old didn’t really write “Blurred Lines” (duh) and he was high in the studio while Pharrell did all the work.
The shocking admission comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who has published the transcript of Robin’s deposition for his preemptive lawsuit against Marvin Gaye’s children, who have threatened to sue the Canadian singer for the similarities between “Blurred Lines” and Marvin’s classic “Got to Give It Up.”

“To be honest, that’s the only part where—I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio,” he said when asked if he was there when Pharrell created the rhythm track.
“So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted — I — 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 and I — because I didn’t want him — 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.”
You read that right. Pharrell wrote every. Single. Part.
According to THR, he goes on to say he “didn’t do a sober interview” last year.
Perhaps the most shocking part of all has to do with the confession Robin made about his marriage. He says that his struggle with the prescription pain killers was ultimately what led to the end of his marriage to estranged wife, Paula Patton.
“I told my wife the truth,” he reportedly said. “That’s why she left me.”
While Robin claims he has since kicked his pill habits, he reportedly admitted he still struggles with alcohol.
