A court hearing in Los Angeles turned into a jam session on Wednesday afternoon thanks to singer, Robin Thicke. But don’t worry, it was all to prove a point.
Thicke appeared before a Los Angeles judge for his copyright trial against Marvin Gaye’s children, who are alleging that the singer’s track “Blurred Lines” infringed on Gaye’s 1977 hit track, “Gotta Give It Up.”
As Paula Patton’s estranged husband took the stand, he jammed out on his keyboard to prove to the judge that there are a plethora of songs that sound similar due to it’s chord progression. The 37-year-old played hits like Bob Marley’s “No Woman,” Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror,” and U2’s “With or Without You.”
During the hearing, the r&b stud stated that he “was not present when the song was created.”
But you might remember during the height of the 2013 track, the pop star led media to believe that he was the brains behind the song’s birth. “I felt it was a little white lie that didn’t hurt his career but boosted mine,” he said about Pharrell Williams who helped produce the track.
“The biggest hit of my career was written by somebody else and I was jealous and wanted credit,” he said.
During the hearing, attorneys brought up Thicke’s deposition where he admitted to lying to the media that he was drunk or high when giving interviews. “The state of my personal life, I was recently separated and having the toughest time of my life when I was doing the deposition,” he explained.
Further adding, “I had a drug and alcohol problem for the year and I didn’t do a sober interview. So I don’t recall many things that I said.”
Over the course of the eight day trial, testimonies will be heard from Pharrell, T.I. and Patton.
Jennifer Hudson Is In Fear For Her Life, Gets Order Of Protection Against Ex-Fiancé David Otunga
Jennifer Hudson has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé, David Otunga.
Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”
After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.
Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
