Earlier this year in March, a jury of eight unanimously agreed that Pharrell Williams & Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” had copied parts of Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up” and owed the Gaye estate $7.3 million. The Hollywood Reporter has video of Pharrell and Thicke’s depositions in their “Blurred Lines” case.
Robin Thicke claimed to be drunk and high on Vicodin throughout all of his interviews in 2013. Pharrell was more agitated in his deposition, as the lawyer for Gaye’s family repeatedly tries to get Pharrell to respond to his questions on whether Williams can read and write music. Williams dodged the questions and responded with, “I’m not a teacher” and “I’m not comfortable.”
Watch both of their depositions below.
