The mere thought of my parents engaging in sexual activity makes me uncomfortable, so I know Robin Thicke was probably somewhere gagging when he learned that his 68-year-old father, Alan Thicke, listens to his music while making love. It was actually Alan’s 40-year-old wife, Tanya Callau, who spilled the beans to Us Weekly.
“When we do get freaky, we love [Robin’s song] ‘Sex Therapy,'” Callau shared. “You have to admit, it’s a great song to get in the mood.”
“Freaky to your son’s voice,” Alan said with a shrug.
After hearing about his stepmom’s comments, Robin responded on Twitter by telling his father that he would be confiscating all of his music.
It’s cool that Robin was able to joke about something so awkward because I would have been mortified. But real talk, Tanya was probably better off keeping that information to herself. I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by this though. In a 2013 interview, Robin discussed his wild childhood and the parade of women that passed through his house.
“My dad was single my whole pubescent period. [Laughs] He had Ms. Alabama, Ms. Dominican Republic—every week. I was like, Dang, Pops. He had an indoor Jacuzzi, and he frequented it,” Robin said. “The first time I saw a nude woman was when I went to take a shower one morning before school. I was like, Who is this girl in my shower?”
