Childhood: Robin Thicke was born to Canadian actor Alan Thicke and American singer and actress, Gloria Loring, in Los Angles, California. He has an older brother, Brennan, who worked as a voice-actor in the 1980s. When Thicke was seven-years-old, his parents separated. Thicke's father refused to pay for his vocal group, after he recorded his first demo as a teenager. Jazz singer Al Jarreau, the uncle of one of the group's members, ended up paying for the group's demo. The demo was heard by singer/songwriter Brian McKnight, who later helped Thicke by inviting him to his recording studio to contribute to his second studio album. At the age of sixteen, Thicke signed a contract with Interscope Records. With his career in the music industry beginning, Thicke moved out and lived by himself at the age of seventeen.
Career: Robin Thicke prepared for his debut studio album, 'Cherry Blue Skies', in 2000. It took until 2002 before he released his debut single, 'When I Get You Alone'. With only moderate success, Thicke released his debut album, now titled 'A Beautiful World', in 2003. The album opened at number 150 on the Billboard 200 List. On 3rd October, 2006, Thicke released his second studio album, titled 'The Evolution of Robin Thicke', which peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200 List. Two years later, Thicke released 'Something Else' - his third studio album, on 30th September, 2008. It debuted at number 3 on Billboard's 200 List. The following year, he released 'Sex Therapy: The Session', on 15th December 2009, debuting at number 9 on the list. On 6th December 2011, Thicke released his fifth studio album, 'Love After War'. On 26th March, 2013, Thicke released the first single from his upcoming sixth studio album, both of which were entitled 'Blurred Lines'. The song received a large amount of controversy for its lyrics and sexual connotations. The album was first released in Germany on 12th July, 2013, before being released in the US on 30th of the same month. In June, 2014, Thicke announced that he was working on a seventh studio album, entitled 'Paula', which was to be entirely dedicated to his estranged ex-wife. The album was released on 1st July, 2014, despite reaching the 9th spot on Billboard's list, the album only just sold over 500 copies in the UK and Canada in its first week.
Personal Life: Robin Thicke first met Paula Patton at the age of 14, in 1991. Two years later, at the age of 16, the couple began to date, and they were married in 2005. In 2010, Thicke and Patton had a child together, named Julian Fuego Thicke. In February, 2014, they separated, with Patton filing for divorce on 9th October 2014.
Thicke and Pharrell were ordered to pay $5.3 million in March 2015 to Marvin Gaye's family after 'Blurred Lines' was found to have copied elements of 'Got To Give It Up'.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have launched an appeal against the landmark court ruling that awarded more than $5 million to the family of Marvin Gaye after it was found that their 2013 smash hit ‘Blurred Lines’ had copied elements of ‘Got To Give It Up’.
Lawyers for Thicke, as well as collaborators Pharrell and rapper TI, filed an opening brief with the ninth circuit court of appeals on Wednesday (August 24th), arguing as their opening statement: “if left to stand, the ‘Blurred Lines’ verdict would chill musical creativity and inhibit the process by which later artists draw inspiration from earlier artists to create new popular music”.

In the recently published tapes Thicke says he was drunk and high on Vicodin when being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey in 2013.
‘Blurred Lines’ singer Robin Thicke has said he was 'high and drunk every time’ he did an interview in 2013. The singer made the revelation during videotaped depositions ahead of the 'Blurred Lines' plagiarism trail, which were obtained and published by The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday.
Robin Thicke has said he was drunk and high during his 2013 interviews.
In one of the videos Thicke tells the attorney, ‘I was high and drunk every time I did an interview last year.’ In another he is asked "Were you drunk and on Vicodin when you did the Oprah show?'" To which he quickly replies "yes".
The British model and actress has previously admitted that she was reluctant at first to star in the video.
Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has spoken once more about her role in the controversial video for ‘Blurred Lines’, the Robin Thicke single that helped her to stardom, calling it “the bane of my existence”.
In a new interview with InStyle magazine, the 24 year old said: “Anyone comes up to me about ‘Blurred Lines’, I’m like, ‘Are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?’” Ratajkowski has since scored roles in Gone Girl and Zac Efron’s recent EDM flick We Are Your Friends, as well as a cameo in the Entourage movie in which she stars as herself.

She was one of the scantily clad stars of 'Blurred Lines' in 2013, but now Emily Ratajkowski can't bear to hear it when out in bars.
It might the pop-culture earthquake that made her famous around the world, but Emily Ratajkowski has revealed that she can’t bear to listen to, or watch the music video for, ‘Blurred Lines’.
The 24 year old model and actress, who was one of the women in the notorious video for Robin Thicke’s smash hit single, the biggest-selling track worldwide in 2013, was speaking to GQ magazine ahead of her new film We Are Your Friends.

Robin Thicke will have to pay a little less to the family of Marvin Gaye over his hit ‘Blurred Lines’.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have received a little bit of good news regarding their ‘Blurred Lines’ copyright case, after a judge trimmed more than $2 million from the damages the duo were ordered to pay to the family of Marvin Gaye.
Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines will now cost him $2 million less.
On July 14th US district judge John A Kronstadt ruled that $2 million should be cut from the $7.4 million total which had been decided on back in March, bringing the sum down to $5.3 million. Kronstadt said that he had made the reducTIon as the original award was not supported by the evidence.
Thicke spoke about how he lost and regained his perspective on life after the success of the controversial worldwide hit 'Blurred Lines' in 2013.
After a thoroughly miserable 18 months, Robin Thicke seems to have reached a sense of perspective with regards to his recent troubles, looking back on his rise and fall in a revealing new interview with the New York Times.
The 38 year old R&B star achieved worldwide fame for his 2013 hit ‘Blurred Lines’, which was the biggest selling single in the world that year. However, that fame slowly turned to notoriety, after the song’s lyrics were accused of being “rape-y” and was the subject of a multi-million dollar copyright infringement case that found that Thicke and collaborator Pharrell Williams had ripped off Marvin Gaye’s ‘Got To Give It Up’.

Robin Thicke's dad just made things really awkward... Alan Thicke confessed he listened to his son's music whilst having sex and Robin Thicke is, understandably, not happy about it.
Robin Thicke wants his dad to return all his music after Alan Thicke admits to listening to Robin's 'Sex Therapy' in the bedroom.
Is this the first signs of the post-'Blurred Lines' legal ruling coming into effect?
The biggest selling single of the year so far has seen a significant change to its writing credits. Mark Ronson’s record-breaking ‘Uptown Funk!’ now includes the writers of The Gap Band’s 1979 hit ‘Oops Up Side Your Head’.
It’s not clear as to how this alteration came about – there have been no court cases or lawsuits in the offing – but five extra names are now included on Ronson’s hit, according to Music Week. They are The Gap Band’s three members Ronnie Wilson, Charles Wilson and Robert Wilson as well as producers Lonnie Simmons and Rudolph Taylor.

The pair have been estranged for over a year, and their divorce will be officially finished next month.
In legal documents obtained by the entertainment website, the ex-couple were formally granted their divorce on March 17th, a full five months after Patton had filed and over a year since they had started living apart in February 2014.
Back then, they said to People “We will always love each other and be best friends. However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.” The pair were former teenage sweethearts, having met at school. Famously, Thicke dedicated his most recent album, Paula, to her in an attempt to win her back, but its sales were hugely lower than expected.
