Robin Thicke is reportedly desperate the save his marriage. He is so desperate that he cancelled a concert in Atlanta so he could fly to Canada to see Paula Patton.
Guardian Liberty Voice previously reported that the decision to end the marriage was mutual between the celebrity couple. Reasons for the split had never been disclosed, but rumors spread that Thicke’s on-stage performance with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs and the series of rumors surrounding affairs with other women.
According to TMZ, the couple had a long talk while Patton was filming a movie in Vancouver. They both acknowledged that things were not working out, and she was upset. The Blurred Lines singer reluctantly agreed to ending the marriage because he knew his wife was adamant that it needed to end.
He cancelled his Atlanta concert to fly to Vancouver for the face-to-face talk with his wife. However, he used the excuse that he had throat problems. He then cancelled his Orlando performance the next night so he could take his son to Disneyland, again using the excuse that he was sick. In the end he cancelled three shows while working on saving his marriage. He only returned to the stage on Thursday, where he performed in Virginia.
While on the stage, he explained his personal life to his fans. Thicke shared just how desperate he is to save his marriage, and told them that the next track, Lost Without U, was one he had written about his childhood sweetheart.
The two have been together since they were 16 and 18 years old, but they only married nine years ago. In a joint statement, they announced that they were still best friends and loved each other, but it was time to bring the relationship to an end. However, it seems that the decision was mainly Patton, and Thicke had little choice but to agree.
It has not been a good week for the couple. Their three-year-old son, Julian, was involved in a minor car accident while being looked after by Patton’s assistant and mom. Nobody was hurt, but it seems that it occurred due to the paparazzi following them. The accident was initially reported by Entertainment Tonight, which made it clear that it had stopped stalking and harassing children of stars just to get photos of them.
There is still no definite reason for the split, but it does seem that 38-year-old Patton is getting fed up of her husband’s behavior. As well as the raunchy VMA performance, the Blurred Lines singer was snapped in a questionable position with another woman while in Paris. He was also recently photographer groping another woman’s bottom.
The singer’s recent music video with various scantily dressed women was also put forward as a reason. However, Patton recently laughed the video off, seemingly accepting that was just part of his role as a performer. But it is clear that something was eating at Patton and she decided it was time for them to go their separate ways. Thicke is not letting her go, though, and is reportedly desperate to save his marriage.
