Robin Thicke Opens Up About Drug And Alcohol Abuse
And The Real Reason His Wife Left Him
Robin Thicke has had a tough time mirroring the success of his 2013 hit Blurred Lines, and now he’s made shocking admissions of his problems with drugs and alcohol.
Thicke is currently caught up in a nasty legal battle with Marvin Gaye's family over claims that he, Pharrell Williams and T.I. ripped off his classic Got To Give It Up.
RadarOnline.com is reporting that during Thicke’s deposition in court, he admitted to being “high on Vicodin and alcohol” during the recording of Blurred Lines.
The singer also said that he struggled to recall most interviews he did last year because he “had a drug and alcohol problem for the year” and “didn’t do a sober interview.”
He even admitted to being “drunk and on Norco” during an interview on Oprah with his 4-year-old son.

Despite rumours of cheating, Thicke blames drugs for his split from wife Paula Patton, saying “I told my wife the truth. That’s why she left me.”
In April, Thicke said that he had been sober from Vicodin for many months, but not from alcohol.
