Now, Williams, on the other hand, although he said he could read sheet music, seemed to get riled up when he had to read it on cue during his deposition. Williams did take ownership of writing "Blurred Lines" and "composing" the music, but when asked why Thicke received 18-22 percent of the royalties, he chalked it up to being part of the game.


"This is what happens every day in our industry," said Williams. "You know, people are made to look like they have much more authorship in the situation than they actually do. So that's where the embellishment comes in."

The Gayes, Thicke, Williams and T.I. will face off in court on Feb. 10, 2015.
