Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Robin Thicke Admitted in Deposition to Being High While Recording “Blurred Lines”

Wow. In a deposition back in April, Robin Thicke admitted to lying to the media and being high when he recorded his hit “Blurred Lines.”

The Hollywood Reporter obtained a copy of the transcript of the deposition, which was Robin’s defense against the family of legendary singer Marvin Gaye, who filed a lawsuit against Robin, along with Pharrell Williams (who wrote the song), accusing them of stealing Marvin’s classic “Got To Give It Up,” for “Blurred Lines.”

According to the transcript, Robin admitted under oath that it was actually Pharrell who wrote the song. “I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit,” he said. “I tried to take credit for it later because [Williams] wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself and I was envious of that.” He was asked if he was present while Pharrell made the track, and that’s when Robin admitted that he was completely gone anyway. “To be honest, that’s the only part where — I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio,” the singer recollected. “So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted…to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit. So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was …I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.” Robin also admitted to being high while doing press throughout 2013, but had since given up Vicodin, though not alcohol.

Robin’s defense has spoken out on the transcript being released. “Robin’s moment of personal vulnerability is being exploited in the hope of diverting attention from the obvious weakness of their legal claim,” Howard King, attorney, managing partner of King, Holmes, Paterno & Berliner, said to Us Weekly.

It’s crazy. Just last year Robin seemed to be on top of the world, and it’s almost like his life is just spiraling down hill. He lost his wife, he’s being sued, and now we find out that he was trying to mask his pain behind drugs and alcohol. It’s really sad. I’m hoping that he is able to bounce back.

REPORT: Bobbi Kristina Got High After Whitney Houston’s Funeral

It has been known that Bobbi Kristina also had some drug and alcohol problems of her own, but now that her mother has passed away, peeps are keeping a close eye on the daughter of legendary singer Whitney Houston.

There are several sources saying that after her mother’s funeral, Bobbi Kristina “disappeared” and her family went into a panic trying to find her. A source said, “Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell. It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms. Cissy [Houston, Whitney’s mother] was beside herself.”

Another source said, “Cissy and others won’t admit out loud that Bobbi Kristina has a drug problem. But they know it and have been trying to keep her straight even before Whitney passed. But losing your mother and the life you’re accustomed to all in one day is enough to send anybody off the deep end.”

Well no doubt! I can’t even imagine how Bobbi must feel. Despite these reports, the family is saying differently. They released the following statement, “There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK. She needed some time alone.”

Well hopefully that time alone didn’t involve getting high and drunk. Surely she is going through a very difficult time but getting high and drunk off your ass certainly isn’t the answer!

Our thoughts are with Bobbi Kristina.

Verdict: Richie Gets Off Easy.


What, did you actually think Richie Sambora was going to get jail time? NOT!

INSTEAD, Sambora was sentenced to three years of informal probation…three months of first-offender alcohol awareness class and court fees. He also cannot have any measurable amount of drugs or alcohol in his system while driving during his probation. Umm…you shouldn’t have any amount of drugs or alcohol in your system while driving EVER! What an idiotic statement!

Richie Sambora was pulled over in Laguna Beach on March 25th for driving while under the influence. Two females, one being his daughter was in the vehicle with him at the time.

Let’s hope that Richie learned his lesson! Hire a driver if you are going to do a little boozin’!
