Turns out the two go waaaaaay back! Robin's dad, Alan Thicke, and Rashida's mom, Peggy Lipton, both acted on shows that aired on the same network, so these celebs actually met when they were pretty young! Rashida remembers:

"I was 12, 13. His dad was on Growing Pains and my mom was on Twin Peaks at the same time, so we met at an ABC party and we flirted and exchanged numbers—landlines obviously."

Robin Thicke & Pharrell Will Pay Millions Less Over Blurred Lines — But It's Not The Result They Wanted!

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams may not be celebrating victory in their Blurred Lines case — but they do have some good news.

After a jury awarded the family of the late Marvin Gaye with a verdict of $7.4 million in their copyright infringement suit over similarities to the song Got To Give It Up, a judge has only mostly upheld the ruling.

While there won't be a new trial as Robin and Pharrell's legal team requested, the judge did lessen the total money owed to $5.3 million.

Williams has the most to be Happy about; he was ruled as only a "practical partner" to Thicke and liable only for his share of profits. He went from having to pay $1.6 mil to $357,000.

The judge also denied the Gaye family's request to block Blurred Lines from further distribution, instead giving them 50% of future songwriting royalties.

While this is somewhat good news, Robin and Pharrell still attest the song shouldn't be ruled as copyright infringement at all, and many in the music industry agree.

Could this set a scary precedent for "homage" sounds? What do YOU think??
