Robin Thicke reportedly reached out to his famous dad during his quest to win back Paula Patton.
Since former Growing Pains star Alan Thicke occasionally has a way with the ladies, the “Blurred Lines” singer asked his father to help saving his marriage. TVNZ claims that Alan has a “close bond” with his son’s wife, a relationship that could ultimately salvage what’s left of their romance.
“Robin’s convinced that his smooth-talking dad — despite his own checkered romantic history — could help him win back his wife,” an anonymous source recently explained.
The insider continued, “Paula adores Alan and he adores her. He admitted he made a mess of his own love life and caused pain for his family with divorces. But he told Paula he believes she and Robin have the strength to get through this and save their union.”
However, Robin Thicke claims that the declarations of love at his recent concerts have helped woo Paula back into his life. During his chat with People last month, the singer said Patton thought these gestures were nothing short of “romantic.”
“My music is very honest about what I’m going through and my songs are about my life. And my relationship with her was 21 years of my life, so I just thought it was important to me to let people know how much she means to me,” Thicke explained.
He added, “We’re both doing well. We’re both very happy right now — much happier. Everything about this moment in my life — this amazing year I just had and what I’m going through personally — has actually ignited some of the best writing I’ve done in a long time.”
Robin told the publication that he intends to chronicle his mishaps with love and marriage on his next album. In other words, expect plenty of sappy love songs about a guy who realizes he screwed up a very good thing.
Of course, the sun isn’t shining 100 percent of the time on Robin Thicke these days. According to E! Online, the singer reportedly backed out of his appearance at the Juno Awards after folks rallied together to get him bumped from the ceremony.
The online petition explained:
“Despite the blatant sexism, degradation of women and promotion of rape culture in Robin Thicke’s song and music video ‘Blurred Lines,’ Thicke is nominated for three awards—Artist of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, and the JUNO Fan Choice Award—at the upcoming Canadian JUNO Broadcast Awards in Winnipeg, Manitoba on March 30, 2014. This is not a song, nor a message, that should be rewarded.”
While some people are still fuming about “Blurred Lines,” Robin Thicke can attempt to win over these folks with songs about his troubled love life. Chances are these tunes won’t push nearly as many buttons.
