Robin Thicke says the real reason why his wife Paula Patton left him was because he was always drunk and high on drugs.
In a new deposition for a lawsuit filed against him by Marvin Gaye’s family over his hit song Blurred Lines, the singer told lawyers that he ‘had a drug and alcohol problem for the year,’ and it was so bad that he’d never ‘do a single interview last year without being high.’
According to the court documents, Thicke often used a drug called Norco or as he put it, ‘like two Vicodin in one pill.’ He also said that his wife packed up and left after he told her his drug problems.
‘I told my wife the truth. That’s why she left me,’ he said under oath.
Well this revelation may explain his antics with Miley Cyrus on that infamous 2013 MTV VMAs performance, which cost them both their relationships.
And concerning the Marvin Gaye’s family lawsuit (Thicke and Pharrell Williams have been accused of stealing part of Gaye’s song Got to Give it Up), Thicke said he was back then too drunk or high to participate in the studio production process. So in effect, he was not responsible for anything that happened during the production of Blurred Lines.
Presently, he says he’s stopped using drugs, but his alcohol habit is still intact.
