Robin Thicke Paula Patton Divorce: Paula Patton is not happy that Robin Thicke was ordered to pay the Marvin Gaye family for copyright infringement for his biggest hit, "Blurred Lines." As a matter of fact, Patton says she is "incredibly pissed off that Marvin Gaye's estate was awarded the money."

Robin Thicke who recently lost a major copyright battle over his hit song "Blurred Lines" to the family of Motown legend Marvin Gaye. Robin Thicke and "Happy" singer Pharell Williams were ordered to pay the estate of Marvin Gaye $7.3 million for reportedly copying "Got to Give It Up " to make "Blurred Lines." Thicke and Williams plan to appeal the judgment.

Gaye's family sued Thicke, 38, Pharrell Williams, and Clifford Harris Jr. (T.I.) for $25 million after the songwriters attempted to fight copyright claims that they more than borrowed Gaye's hit "Got To Give It Up."

Radar Online reported that a friend of Robin Thicke's ex-wife complained that "any money that comes out of Robin's pocket comes out of her pocket too." The source alleged that "The endless money that she used to have when 'Blurred Lines' came out" may be cut off "and her ex's reputation has been tarnished forever."

"That song was the jackpot for the both of them and was his career high point," the source told Radar Online. "Now it is clearly his downfall."

Patton officially filed for divorce in October 2014. At first Thicke tried to win back his childhood sweetheart with an album called "Paula." The 38-year-old the singer and the 39-year-old actress reportedly settled their differences over child custody and property issues. Their legal split will go into effect April 14.

Paula Patton recently sat down with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America for an interview.

"I mean, the honest truth is, it has been challenging," Patton revealed. "But it has been a year of growth-learning about all new things. I feel like everything happens for a reason. And then you have to move on and grow from there."

Patton and Thicke separated after nine years of marriage. The couple started dating while they were in high school, and in 2010 Patton gave birth to their son, Julian Fuego Thicke.

"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," Thicke and Patton told People magazine in a statement last year.
