Robin Thicke coped with his father’s death by “devoting [his] Time to wind up [his] Son”.
Hitmaker “Blurred Lines” was “not in a good place” when his father Alan Thicke passed away after a heart attack in 2016, saying he managed to drag himself through “that time” by focusing on all of his focused energy on his son Julian, now 10, whom he has with ex-wife Paula Patton.
He said, “I wasn’t in a good place when he died and I wasn’t in a better place right after that. However, a few months later I decided to devote my time to raising my son and it really was.” A big turn for me. Instead of focusing on my music, I focused on my son. That’s how I got through this time. “
Alan’s death was a wake-up call for Robin, but the singer admitted he hadn’t “taken any steps” to make important changes to his outlook on life until the November 2018 Woolsey Fire in Malibu burned down.
Robin, who shared the house with his fiancée April Love Geary, with whom he has Mia, two, Lola, 23 months, and Luca, two months, explained: “I suffered blow after blow, loss after loss. But I saw That House burned down as a chance for me to step up and say, “We’re going to laugh today. We’re going to smile today. We’re going to play today. We’re going to dance. We’re going to not let it matter to us to lose our things because we have each other. ‘Loss creates gratitude. “
