Robin Thicke has again vowed to save his marriage to Paula Patton, but the “Blurred Lines” singer was snapped in NYC over the weekend without his wedding ring — a sign that the relationship may be beyond repair.
The pair recently announced their split after almost nine years of marriage, but Thicke, who turns 37 today, told fans at Madison Square Garden on Friday night they should always “fight” for the person they love.
“When there’s someone you love, you gotta fight for them no matter what,” he told the packed house. “We gotta learn to forgive each other, learn to love each other ... no matter who it is in your family or relationship ... ’cause you’re always gonna need your friends and family.”
After his show at MSG, Thicke stopped by Meatpacking District hot spot La Cenita for a secret performance at the Remy Martin party that took over the entire restaurant. “He jumped up onstage for a toast, then sang ‘Blurred Lines,’ but only made it through that song before announcing to the crowd his voice had been bothering him from the tour,”.
“He said that his voice hurt, and he didn’t say ’bye to anyone. He just left, and everyone was really confused,” says our snitch. The multiplatinum R&B singer was seen quickly leaving the venue, and later partied at West Village club Up and Down.
On March 2, Thicke was still wearing his platinum wedding band as he took the stage at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, where he told fans he was trying to spread “love and joy” in what sounded like a reference to attempting to win back his high-school sweetheart.
“Never stop believing and you never stop loving. And even if it is over, make sure you treat each other right. Treat your family right. Sometimes when I get a little scared or worried about the future, I just try to stay positive and do my part to spread love and spread joy,” he said at the gig. When a fan called out, “I love Paula!” Thicke fired back, “I do, too!”
Patton, meanwhile, has been getting on with her life, sans wedding ring, and was seen at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica on March 1 and the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party.
