Robin Thicke was in the music biz long before he rose to international prominence with his 2013 hit “Blurred Lines”. In fact, he has been around in the industry for more than 20 years, working with other big names before his own rise to fame. Robin Thicke was born into a family of entertainers, in March 1977. His father, Alan Thicke, is a Canadian actor best known for the sitcom ‘Growing Pains’, and his mother is singer and actress Gloria Loring, who appeared on the long-running daytime drama ‘Days of Our Lives’. Robin’s older brother Brennan also worked as a voice artist.
Robin was musically inclined ever since he was a young kid, and while his parents supported his passion, his father refused to pay for making demo tapes because he wanted Robin to complete school and college successfully before pursuing a career in music. The demo tape was ultimately paid for by a jazz musician who was the uncle of one of Robin’s bandmates. At age 17, Robin moved out of his parent’s home and into his own place, supporting himself with his own earnings that he made as a professional record producer and songwriter.
While his parents didn’t discourage him from pursuing his love of music, they didn’t exactly encourage him either. Because their own experience in the entertainment industry had been lukewarm, Robin’s parents were initially doubtful of his level of success. Their confidence increased as Robin’s credit of work increased. Let’s find out how much Robin Thicke’s net worth is as of 2020.

His biggest hit is, without a doubt, “Blurred Lines”, that spent 33 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 after it released in 2013.
