Facts about Julien’s father Rob Thicke

Julien Fuego Thicke’s father gained international fame in 2013 with his single “Blurred Lines”, which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. He is currently a judge on the Fox musical competition show The Masked Singer.

Thicke is the son of actress Gloria Loring and actor Alan Thicke.

Robin shares Julian with his ex-wife Paula Patton. The former couple, who welcomed the boy in April 2010, split up in February 2014. 

The “Blurred Lines” singer is currently engaged to model April Love Geary. The pair welcomed their third child together, son Luca Patrick, on Dec. 11, 2020, and two days later, Robin took to Instagram to pay tribute to late father Alan Thicke on the fourth anniversary of his death

“Four years ago today, on December 13, 2016, my beloved Father passed away,” Robin wrote to accompany a photo of himself in bed with his newborn son.

The star continued in the caption at the time, “As I wake up next to this little guy [sic] his first night home, I miss my father so much, but I feel his love in my heart every time I kiss my babies on the head the same way he would kiss me.”

Thicke’s parents encouraged him to pursue music, and his father assisted him in writing and structuring his first songs. Thicke claims that his father refused to pay for Thicke and his vocal group, As One, to make a professionally produced demo tape because he wanted Robin to focus on his education and graduate from high school before pursuing a career in music.

Jazz performer Al Jarreau, an uncle of one of the group members, eventually paid for the demo. Thicke’s tape caught the attention of R&B artist Brian McKnight, who invited him into the studio to collaborate with him.

Thicke was signed to McKnight’s production company; “Anyway”, a song co-written with Thicke, was featured on McKnight’s second album I Remember You. Julien Thicke’s peers jokingly nicknamed him “Brian McWhite”.

Thicke moved out on his own at the age of 17, during his final year of high school, to work as a professional record producer and composer and support himself. While Thicke’s parents did not try to dissuade him from his ambition to work in the music industry, their personal experience with the nature of the entertainment industry made them wary at first. Thicke’s parents’ faith in his decision strengthened as his credit list grew.
