(Belfast Telegraph) – Robin Thicke has admitted that he didn’t actually co-write his hit single Blurred Lines with Pharrell Williams.

The singer has testified as part of an ongoing legal case which claims the smash hit was lifted from Marvin Gaye’s 1977 song Got To Give It Up.

According to a copy of the deposition obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Robin admitted the recording session for the song was all a bit of a blur.

Robin testified: “I was high on vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio… 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.”
