'Blurred Line' is facing a plagiarism lawsuit by Marvin Gaye's family who claim that it is a rip off of 'Got to Give It Up'.

Thicke said while the song, which he says he claimed credit falsely, was climbing the charts, he was battling drug and alcohol problems. Under oath, Thicke said it was Pharrell Williams who wrote the number.

The singer said Patton decided to end their relationship when he came clean to her about the song and his addiction problem, said a magazine.

"Every day I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews," he said in the file.

The R&B crooner also touches on his very public split from Patton, 38.

The actress left Thicke in February following rumors of his infidelity and his racy "Blurred Lines" performance with Miley Cyrus at an award show.

"Do you consider yourself an honest person?" a prosecutor asked him during the deposition. "No. That's why I'm separated," Thicke responded, later adding, "I told my wife the truth. That's why she left me."
