Robin Thicke seems to be the reason his marriage to Paula Patton crumbled, but allegedly he is not giving up just yet. After nine years of marriage, the couple announced their decision to split on Monday.
"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," they said in a joint statement to People magazine. But now, TMZ reports the “Blurred Lines” singer is keen on winning Patton’s heart back. “Robin desperately wants to save his marriage,” a source tells the site, and he wants to show Patton he can be a “good husband.”
Ever since his raunchy VMA performance with Miley Cyrus last year, Thicke has dealt with marriage controversy. Shortly after, Thicke was thought to have crossed the line with a young female, after a picture surfaced on the Internet showing the 36-year-old crooner grabbing college student Lana Scolaro's butt while smiling.
The blonde had a short dress on, and Thicke’s hand is clearly shown going beneath her skirt. Scolaro even has her head on Thicke’s shoulder and her arms around him. It is unclear who took the racy shot, but a Twitter user sent the photo directly to Patton, writing, “Look at the reflection girl.” It is believed the photo was taken at 1Oak nightclub in New York while Thicke was with his wife.
Then just last month, the singer got a bit too close for comfort to a beautiful curly-haired woman while performing at a Paris nightclub.
The unidentified woman cozied up to the R&B crooner after his performance at Club 79. At one point, pictures were taken of her putting her arms around Thicke’s neck and whispering in his ear. The pair never seemed too far away from each other while on the dance floor. It is unclear where his wife was at the time.
Paula Patton and singer Thicke married in 2005 after dating throughout their teenage years. They now have a 3-year-old son, Julian.
Thicke said in an interview last year that he knew right away that Patton was the woman for him. “I knew she was special the night I met her. As a relationship progresses, you fall in love again in so many deeper ways. You realize that you need each other and you can’t live without each other.”
