Robin Thicke Net Worth: How Does American Record Producer and Actor Earn $10 Million Worth?
Singer-songwriter-dancer-record producer-actor-TV host Robin Charles Thicke was born in the United States.
Thicke shot to fame with his 2013 track “Blurred Lines,” which featured Robin Thicke and Alicia Keys. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 for a week.
Having spent most of his career as a composer and record producer, it’s no surprise that Robin Thicke was once written off as a one-hit-wonder. The R&B singles “Lost Without U,” “Sex Therapy,” and “Magic” that Thicke released prior to 2013 were all somewhat successful.
Thicke has worked with several other well-known musicians. He contributed to albums including Usher’s “Confessions” and Lil Wayne’s “That Carter III.”
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Robin Alan Thicke was born on March 10, 1977, to two well-known performers in Los Angeles, California. His mom is Gloria Loring, an actress, and singer who is famous for her part in the “Days of Our Lives” daytime soap opera on NBC. Alan Thicke Sr. was an actor as well, perhaps most famous for his part in the comedy “Growing Pains.” He has an elder brother and a younger half-brother due to his parent’s divorce when he was 7.
Throughout his childhood, Thicke’s parents encouraged his musical interests. However, Thicke claims that his father declined to fund a professional demo tape for him and his band, As One, because he wanted Thicke to concentrate on schoolwork. One of the band members’ uncles, jazz performer Al Jarreau, ended up paying $1,000 for the tape.
Brian McKnight, a popular R&B singer, heard Thicke’s tape and was so impressed that he signed the singer to his production business. Thicke collaborated with McKnight in the songwriting process, contributing to the second album’s “Anyway.” McKnight was instrumental in getting Thicke, when just 16 years old, signed to a music deal with Interscope Records thanks to an introduction he made for Thicke to Jimmy Iovine.

Career in Music
Thicke began making a living as a professional record producer and composer at the age of 17 when he moved out on his own. Songwriters like Brandy, Jordan Knight, Christina Aguilera, and Mya all benefited from his early work. He began releasing albums and performing live under the moniker “Thicke” in the early 2000s and continued to do so until 2005.
After his previous contract with Interscope expired, Thicke spent some time with Epic before returning to Interscope, this time under Kenneth “Babyface” Edwards’s Nu America label. The first song released by Thicke, “When I Get You Alone,” reached the Top 20 in Australia in 2002.
The results were similarly encouraging in the Netherlands and Italy, in addition to New Zealand. ‘A Beautiful World’ was released thanks to his album’s mediocre popularity (2003). While the album’s sales were disappointing (it only reached No. 152 on the Billboard 200), he still received offers to work with big names like Usher and Mary J. Blige.
Due to financial and creative issues, Thicke and his record company, Interscope Records, were unable to move quickly on his second album. Thicke, though, left an impression on Pharrell Williams. Since Williams’ record company Star Trak had an existing distribution agreement with Interscope, Thicke was able to sign with the label in 2005.
While “Lost Without U” only reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, Thicke’s second studio album, “The Evolution of Robin Thicke,” was released in October of 2006. After selling over 1.5 million copies in the United States alone, the RIAA has certified the album platinum.
Thicke opened the North American leg of Beyoncé’s “The Beyoncé Experience” tour in 2007. In September 2008, he released “Something Else,” his third studio album, which quickly rose to the third spot on the Billboard 200 list. His newest album, “Sex Therapy,” came out in December 2009 and features guest appearances from Estelle, Snoop Dogg, and Nicki Minaj.
Released in December 2011, Thicke’s fifth studio album “Love After Conflict” opened at position number twenty-two on the Billboard 200. After that, in July of 2013, he released his sixth studio album, titled “Blurred Lines.” The album’s debut song, “Blurred Lines,” also includes T.I. and Pharrell and was released in March 2013.
Thicke and Paula Patton initially met in 1991, when he was 14 and she was 16. They first started going out in 1993 and tied the knot in 2005. And in 2010, they welcomed a son, Julian Fuego Thicke. Thicke and Patton divorced in 2015 after separating in 2014.
They had been together for 21 years and had been married for almost nine. Patton filed for a restraining order against Thicke at the beginning of 2017, citing his history of domestic violence, substance misuse, and extramarital affairs. In August of 2017, they were able to settle their child custody dispute.
At a gathering in 2014, Thicke was introduced to April Love Geary. In February 2018 she gave birth to their first child, and in February 2019 she gave birth to their second. On the eve of Christmas 2018, the pair announced their engagement.
Thicke and Geary’s Malibu, California, a house burned down in the Woolsey fire in November of 2018. Since Thicke is a close friend of Usher’s, he sang at the singer’s proposal to Tameka Foster. In addition to his own wedding, Thicke sang at the nuptials of Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto.
Alan Robin, Robin’s father, purchased a house in the Hollywood Hills’ “Bird Streets” neighborhood for $910,000 in 1990.
Alan transferred ownership of the home to his son upon his marriage to Paula Robin in 2005. Robin and Paula’s house hit the market in 2014 for a little under $3 million, a price at which they decided to sell. The residence sold for $4.9 million, $1.9 million more than the asking price.
Robin purchased a property in Malibu, California, on 1.7 acres in March 2015 for $2.4 million.
