Robin Thicke says he was drunk and high on Vicodin every time he spoke to a reporter while promoting his hit song “Blurred Lines” during a lawsuit deposition, an admission that has shocked many of his supporters.

In a related report by NewsOXY, the entertainer was sued by Marvin Gaye’s family for his Blurred Lines song. The family took him to court for copyright infringement in a federal lawsuit that led to a video deposition. The family says that the singer told people that his song was inspired by “Got to Give It Up.”

But now Robin Thicke’s drunk admission that he was also high on Vicodin during every Blurred Lines interview has raised a few eyes. The singer, who has long struggled with drugs and alcohol, copped on camera to having been inebriated during a 2013 Oprah Winfrey interview and an interview aired on VH1.

“With all due respect, I was high and drunk every time I did an interview last year,” he said during the series of clips. “I didn’t do a single interview last year last year without being high on both.” At one point, when asked if he considers himself an honest person, he immediately replied, “No.” Coincidentally, this all happened before right before his breakup with Paula Patton, who he hasn’t seen since their divorce.

The industry publication also obtained video of Pharrell Williams giving testimony, which showed the sour-faced musician reluctantly answering attorney Richard Busch’s inquiries. “I’m not here to teach you music,” he told Busch when asked if he could define a chord structure, repeatedly telling the lawyer, “I’m not comfortable.”

The song was written by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. Thicke was ordered in March to pay $7.3 million to music icon Marvin Gaye’s estate after a jury decided they had ripped off elements of Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” Thicke paid $5.4 million after a judge later lessened the payout.

People reported that Robin Thicke was careless during his deposition, which took place just two weeks after the “personal hell” of his separation from wife Paula Patton.

“I know the difference between inspiration and theft,” said in another interview. “I’m constantly inspired, but I would never steal. And neither would Pharrell.” Thicke plans to appeal the court’s decision. Fortunately for him, these clips from his deposition admitting he was drunk won’t trail him there.
