Robin Thicke, Pharrell lose round one of 'Blurred Lines' lawsuit

Robin-Thicke-Blurred-Lines

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have lost the primary round of their legal battle against Marvin Gaye’s estate over “Blurred Lines,” according to The L.A. Times.

The pair, who worked together on the 2013 hit, filed the suit earlier this year upon receiving accusations from Gaye’s family that parts of “Got to Give It Up” had been copied. Gaye’s family responded with a countersuit.

Thursday, U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt denied Thicke and Williams’ motion for summary judgment. His ruling found similarities between the bass lines, keyboard parts, vocal lines, melodies, and harmonies of the two songs, meaning there is enough evidence to move forward with the Gaye family’s claim. A trial is scheduled to take place on Feb. 10, 2015.

 

Paula Patton files for divorce from Robin Thicke

Despite her estranged husband’s rather public campaign to “Get Her Back,” Paula Patton has filed for a divorce from Robin Thicke after nine years of marriage, EW has confirmed.

In documents filed on Oct. 3 in an L.A. County Superior Court, Patton cites irreconcilable differences for filing for a divorce. She asked for joint legal and physical custody of their 4-year-old son, Julian.

The news comes six months after the couple announced their separation. Thicke responded with a rather extravagant public apology one that included an entire album dedicated to his wife and a please-forgive-me performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

In a revealing interview last month in which he admitted to a drug and alcohol addiction, the “Blurred Lines” singer opened up about he and his wife’s separation, and what part he played in it. When asked if he thinks he’s an honest person, he replied, “No, that’s why I’m separated…I told my wife the truth. That’s why she left me.”

A rep for Patton did not immediately respond to EW‘s request for comment.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separate

Looks like marriage may have had some blurred lines for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton.

The couple made a statement exclusively to People that they’re ending their long relationship together.

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the singer and the actress said.

The pair have been married since 2005 and welcomed son Julian Fuego Thicke in April 2010. The couple met back in 1991 when Thicke and Patton were still teenagers.
