Robin Thicke reportedly cheated on Paula Patton following the infamous 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but now he wants to win his estranged wife back. Following awards season, the two unsurprisingly announced their split, but Thicke isn’t going to let the actress go without a fight.
They’ve been with each other since they were teenagers and share son Julian, 3, and at the Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Thicke, 37, confessed his love for Patton, 38.
Thicke premiered his new song “Get Her Back” and dedicated it to Patton, who's been his wife for eight years. “I should've kissed you longer/ I should've held you stronger," he sang, according to Billboard.com. He continued, "All I wanna do is make it right... I gotta get her, go get her back/ I gotta treat her right /I gotta cherish her for life."
Thicke took home four awards at the 2014 BBMAs, including Top Hot 100 Song, Top Digital Song, Top Radio Song and Top R&B Song for his controversial (to some) jam "Blurred Lines," which spent 12 weeks on the Hot 100.
When Thicke accepted his award for Best R&B Single, he made sure to thank Patton. "Most importantly, I'd like to thank my wife for her love and support, and for putting up with me for all these years,” he said, as quoted by ABCNews.com.
Patton opened up to Vanity Fair earlier this month and revealed neither one of them seem ready to give up on their marriage. "All I can tell you is there's a deep love there — always was, and always will be," she said.
