Back in March they were hit with a $7.4 million copyright infringement lawsuit over their hit song “Blurred Lines,” and this week US District Judge John A. Krontstadt reduced Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' damages to $5.3 million.
The hit song, which was deemed too similar to Marvin Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up,” was targeted by Gaye’s family, and though their lump sum is less than originally thought, they will receive 50 percent of all future earnings.
They hit it big with their single “Blurred Lines” back in 2013, but unfortunately Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have been found guilty of copyright infringement and ordered to pay Marvin Gaye’s estate a whopping $7.3 million.
The jury of eight members found that the sexually explicit ditty was too similar to Gaye’s 1977 track “Got To Give It Up,” and handed down the decision on Tuesday (March 10).
He’s not exactly the model husband, given his backside-grabbing antics and a grinding incident with Miley Cyrus on live television, but Robin Thicke is doing everything he can to beg the forgiveness of estranged wife Paula Patton.
According to an insider, the “Blurred Lines” hitmaker will drop a new album on July 1st and the title is rumored to be Paula.
