Robin Thicke's troubled marriage to Paula Patton has been making headlines for most of the year.

The "Lost Without You" singer has made several attempts to regain the love of his estranged wife, but to no avail.

His alleged cheating scandal has also been a major topic of discussion since the couple announced their separation back in February.

Now, unfortunately, he's making headlines yet again. This time the 37-year-old singer has admitted to serious drug abuse and alcoholism, reports Hollywood Reporter. He also admitted there were times when he didn't even recall some of the interviews he'd done, because he was high on drugs and alcohol.

"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. "I don't recall many things that I said. In fact, I was quite surprised when I read them back sometimes."

His admission was reportedly taken from a deposition he and Pharrell Williams made back in April. For those who missed it, Marvin Gaye's children filed a lawsuit against the "Feel Good" singer, Williams, and Atlanta-based rapper, T.I.

The family alleges the "Blurred Lines" beat was taken from Gaye's 1977 smash hit “Got to Give It Up.” In the deposition, Thicke also admitted he didn't help write the 2013 hit single.

"I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted — I — 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," he said.

"So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was and I — because I didn’t want him — 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 Thicke also admitted Paula Patton left him because he also told her the truth about his battle with drug and alcohol abuse.
