Thicke: Distracted by failing marriage during music case

02 July 2015, 20:37

New York - Robin Thicke says a deposition for the "Blurred Lines" case took a backseat to his crumbling marriage, in his first interview since he and Pharrell lost the lawsuit in March.

In an interview with The New York Times that was posted Wednesday, Thicke says he was "careless" during the deposition, which occurred two weeks after he separated from actress Paula Patton.

He and Pharrell were later ordered to pay nearly $7.4 million to three of Marvin Gaye's children after a jury determined the performers had copied elements of the R&B icon's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" for "Blurred Lines."

Thicke said he was surprised they lost the case. "That's why we're appealing. I know the difference between inspiration and theft. I'm constantly inspired, but I would never steal."
