Robin Thicke already had to pay $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye's family after a jury decided his and Pharrell Williams' hit Blurred Lines infringed on the copyright of Got To Give It Up.

What a terrible way to end a terrible year.

Robin Thicke hasn't had the best luck during these past 12 months, and it looks like the start to his 38th go around the sun isn't starting off much better.

That's because Robin and Pharrell just lost their Blurred Lines copyright lawsuit to Marvin Gaye on Tuesday… which also happens to be Robin's birthday.

Despite his musical defense, along with Pharrell, T.I., and even Paula Patton taking the stand, the jury found that the men behind the controversial song owe Marvin's estate $7.3 million!

Inneresting…

Blurred Lines may have been the most misogynistic song of 2013, but it was also undoubtedly a moneymaker.

In fact, Robin Thicke's date rape anthem No. 1 song earned him a staggering $5,658,214, while featured artist Pharrell walked away with a measly $5,153,457.

And while the song saw a lot of profit for Paula Patton's ex, that may not be the case for long!

Robin Thicke is such a wild card.

On Wednesday, the crooner was in court to defend himself against claims that Blurred Lines is a plagiarized version of Marvin Gaye's Gotta Give It Up.

To demonstrate that the hit is not a rip-off of Marvin, the singer chose a UNIQUE way to prove his point.

In front of the ENTIRE court, Robin played and sang a medley of U2's With Or Without You, The Beatles' Let It Be, Alphaville's Forever Young, Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry, and Michael Jackson's Man In the Mirror, to demonstrate that many popular songs share similar chord progressions. Oh, and the singer even danced a little!

Ha! Smart move but also kind of…awkward.

We imagine the court stenographer was like…
