Robin Thicke & Pharrell: Ruling ‘Sets a Horrible Precedent for Music & Creativity’
The high school sweethearts — they started dating in 1993 — were married in 2005 and welcomed their only child, Julian Fuego Thicke, into the world in 2010. In early 2014, after the explosive success of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” featuring Pharrell and T.I., the couple separated. Patton officially filed for divorce in October, a few months after Thicke’s album-length plea to save their marriage, entitled Paula, bombed on the charts.
2015 has been rough for Thicke so far. Just eight days ago, a jury ruled that Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines” infringed on Marvin Gaye‘s copyrighted 1977 song “Got to Give It Up” and awarded Gaye’s family a total of $7.4 million.
