Paula Patton is not convinced by the public professions of love from estranged husband Robin Thicke, who has made it no secret that he wants her back after the two split last month.
After months of rumors surrounding their relationship, the couple — who are High School sweethearts — announced, in what was said to be a joint statement, through her rep, that they had decided to break things off.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
Immediately afterwards Robin — who had just started his tour — canceled three shows to fly to Paula Patton’s side and try to convince her to change her mind, but to no avail.
Now, TMZ is reporting that sources close to Paula say she is not ready to take her ex back…yet, however, she also hasn’t filed formal divorce papers, but is spending her time “thinking” about her current situation.
Rumors started soon after Thicke’s controversial performance with Miley Cyrus in August of last year at the MTV VMAs, which included many sexual innuendos on her part that he seemed to enjoy. Notably absent was Paula Patton, maybe in a sign that Robin knew the show would be racy.
There have been reports stating that was the straw that broke the camel’s back in Paula’s eyes and she felt humiliated in private, even as she defended Thicke to the media saying that a double standard was applied when it came to his and Miley’s antics on stage.
The couple was seen at the opening of her movie 2 Guns and other red carpet events throughout the year including an appearance at the Grammys this year. Despite the rumors about their marriage, Paula Patton and Robin Thicke showed a untied front on that occasion, but she later confessed that it was for show.
Robin has gone as far as dedicating songs to Paula while on tour, to which he was forced to return to keep the dates, and at one of the first shows following the announcement of the split he told fans:
“I want everybody here to know that I’m trying to get my girl back.” And he proceeded to sing “Lost Without U,” a 2007 hit single he wrote, inspired by Patton.
As reported by The Inquisitr the “Blurred Lines” singer was seen wearing his wedding ring as late as February 28.
Paula Patton was seen dancing to “Blurred Lines” at an Oscar party, which she attended solo, and has supposedly said that Robin has to prove to her he can be a good husband and end his straying ways. There are rumors she is dating co-star Denzel Washington.
