Nearly nine years later, it was confirmed that Paula Patton had separated from the Blurred Lines singer in February 2014. Robin Thicke tried desperately to win her back.
The 38-year-old singer essentially campaigned for her attention, begging for the chance of reconciliation through sentimental song performances and on-stage confessions.
Thicke even went as far as creating an album that was specifically focused on and named after his estranged wife, Paula which featured the single “Get Her Back.”
In an interview with the popular New York radio station Hot 97 in July 2014, Robin promoted the album while also confessing the nature of his own flaws.
“I’m a man. I messed up, and I had to lie for awhile. And then I stopped lying. And that was actually good for me, because I was tired of lying. So this whole album is me revealing everything.”
However, those efforts were not very successful – especially since Paula Patton decided to file for divorce from Robin in October 2014, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
In addition to experiencing problems in his personal life, Robin Thicke has also had to experience a major problem in his professional life as well. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, a jury ruled in favor of Marvin Gaye’s family after a lengthy trial focusing on the hit Robin Thicke song, Blurred Lines which featured performances by Pharrell Williams and T.I.

According to the verdict, the artists were ordered to pay $7.3 million since the hit song reportedly ripped off the 1977 Marvin Gaye song, “Got to Give It Up.”
Us Weekly published a statement issued by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams in regards to their feelings on the verdict.
“While we respect the judicial process, we are extremely disappointed in the ruling made…which sets a horrible precedent for music and creativity going forward. We are reviewing the decision, considering our options.”
As of right now, Robin Thicke has not said much of anything recently via social media about his personal or professional issues. His divorce from actress Paula Patton will reportedly finalize on April 14.
