Last we heard from Robin Thicke, he wasn't doing well.

Thicke admitted to alcohol and pain pill addictions in a recent deposition that stemmed from a lawsuit over whether he'd plagiarized his 2013 hit, "Blurred Lines."

Laying It on Thicke

Thicke confessed to not remembering much of the whirlwind few months following the song's release, during which time he became a world-famous pop star and got dumped by Paula Patton, his wife of nine years.

It was a startling admission from a man who seemed to be on top of the world just one year ago.

But even though Robin is aware of his problems to the point that he's willing to open up about them in court, sources say his addictions have only gotten worse in recent months:

Even though "Blurred Lines" was 2013's undisputed "song of the summer" the catchy smash hit has since become a source of never-ending headaches for its singer, Robin Thicke.

Laying It on Thicke

Thicke is being sued over "Blurred Lines" by the family of legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye. They claim that Thicke stole the rhythm and basic melody of the song from Gaye's 1977 classic "Got to Give It Up."

Thicke basically admits that "Lines" is plagiarized in a bizarre, rambling deposition that just went public today. However, he says he's not responsible, as his collaborator Pharrell "wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself."

"I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up to the studio," Thicke tells lawyers when asked about the song. "I thought I wanted...I wanted to be more involved than I was by the time nine months later when the song became a huge hit...I was jealous and wanted some of the credit."

Remember when MTV (music television) actually used to play music videos on TV? Yeah, we do too. Pour one out for the good ol' days...

After three years of airing 'round-the-clock music, MTV unleashed a phenomenon known as Video Music Awards upon the world in 1984.

The idea? To celebrate the artists that brought our favorite tunes to life on the small screen and intersperse said awards with live performances from those very artists.

That was probably where MTV went wrong. Or very, very right.

What happened after that first very crazy VMA show in 1984 when Madonna's "Like a Virgin" took on new life was that the ante was summarily upped.

Every musical act to come would need to bring their A-Game if they'd make headlines the next morning. Plenty of them, from Madge to Miley, managed to do just fine.

In honor of the 30th MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, let's take a walk down memory lane to relive the 17 craziest moments in VMA history ...

Like a Virgin
Madonna didn't intend to writhe around on the stage during her 1984 performance of "Like a Virgin." She lost one of her shoes and the rest became history.

It hasn't been a great week for love in Hollywood.

Ariana Grande split from Jai Brooks because he wasn't supportive of her. Ramona Singer ended her marriage because her husband Mario was unfaithful.

Joe Jonas stopped giving it to Blanda Eggenschwiler. Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran ... we don't know what is going on there. But it appears to be over.

But at least all of the above take solace in the following: they aren't alone. Far from it, in fact, as a number of high-profile romances have already met their demise in 2014. 

We're not taking sides. We're not judging the basis for these break-ups. We're just running down the celebrities who have found themselves single so far this year:

Having met with a divorce lawyer to assess her crumbling union, Kendra Wilkinson also needs to let loose to make sure she doesn't get totally depressed.

Enter Robin Thicke, a man who knows a thing or two about crumbling marriages!

Stepping out with her girlfriends for the second time in as many weeks, the mother of two had dinner at Aventine Hollywood before hitting up a nearby lounge.

  • Hank and Kendra Pic
  • Laying It on Thicke

"Kendra had a couple of drinks ... she was being social and dancing," says the source, who notes that Thicke and rapper Too Short hung with her.

"It was a super fun night, but nothing too crazy." Like closing down the club.

That said, things on the home front are less of a party.

Despite reports that Kendra is looking to capitalize on Hank Baskett's cheating scandal, People sources say there's likely no going back to him now.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separated back in March, inspiring Thicke to pen countless musical tributes in an effort to save his marriage.

Many began to wonder if Thicke and Patton had faked their breakup, as the timing seemed suspiciously well-coordinated with the release of Thicke's latest studio album (titled, of course, Paula).

Paula Patton and husband Robin Thicke. They make a cute couple, wouldn't you agree?

Now it seems there was nothing fraudulent about Robin's pain after all, as TMZ reports that Thicke has given up his reconciliation efforts and is now waiting for Patton to file for divorce.

Yes, though he's said to have admitted privately that his marriage will soon be over, Thicke refuses to be the one to officially end it.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton broke up back in March, but many fans and industry insiders expressed their suspicions that the couple's marital woes were part of a ploy to promote Robin's new album.

Claims that Robin and Paula faked their separation seemed to be substantiated by Thicke's constant musical pleas to "get her back."

How did he write all these lovelorn songs so fast? Does he expect us to believe that the timing of the split just happened to coincide with the release of his new album?

Well, according to an interview Robin gave New York radio station Hot 97 today, the breakup is real. So real in fact, that he hasn't seen the mother of his child in four months!

#AskThicke? More like #FailHard.

In anticipation of Robin Thicke dropping his new album today, VH1 asked fans last night to submit questions for an interview with the singer.

Via Twitter, producers wrote to followers: "Have a burning question for @robinthicke? Submit your ?s for tomorrow's Twitter Q+A using #AskThicke!"

Simple enough, right? Yes. But also rather humiliating for the artist.

More than inquiring about various tracks or tour dates, many took this opportunity to pummel Thicke with negative questions, insulting him for trying to win Paula Patton on stage and for grinding all up on Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs.

Just how badly did critics give it to Thicke? Let's just say the following Tweets (all 100% real) didn't exactly blur any lines regarding their contempt for the crooner:

#AskThicke...
Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?

Robin Thicke was it again last night.

The turned the 2014 BET Awards into his own version of relationship therapy, dedicating the track "Forever Love" to estranged wife Paula Patton and telling the crowd prior to performing:

"I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I’m sorry.' This is called Forever Love."

Thicke has pulled this maneuver numerous times since splitting from Patton several months ago.

He tried to get Patton back at the Billboard Music Awards in May and openly pleaded with the actress during various concert stops during his spring tour.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton "broke up," back in February, but now the very public nature of their separation and his attempts to get back in his wife's good graces are raising questions as to whether the whole thing is simply a stunt cooked up by Thicke's PR team.

Earlier this week, Thicke debuted the video for his new single entitled - you guessed it! - "Get Her Back," from the album called simply - you guessed it again! - Paula.

Not only did Thicke's troubled love life help the singer secure a spot in the headlines right in the midst of his post-"Blurred Lines" career slump, he seemed to churn out an album's worth of content devoted to his estranged wife in remarkably quick fashion.

Skeptics are likening the Thicke-Patton separation to Justin Bieber's stolen laptop stunt, which proved to be simply a gimmick designed to help Bieber promote his single "Beauty and a Beat."
