Robin Thicke On Paula Patton: 'I'm Just Trying To Get Her Back'

The 'Blurred Lines' singer and wife of nine years announced they're separating earlier this week.

Robin Thicke has apparently been lying low since he and wife Paula Patton announced they're separating earlier this week — remaining silent on the topic on Twitter and even making a third show cancelation on his North American Tour — but it's all for a good reason.

"I'm just trying to get her back," Thicke told a TMZ cameraman at an airport in Washington, D.C., on Thursday (February 27). (Thicke is in D.C. to kick off his tour after canceling the first three stops in Atlanta, Orlando and Cherokee, North Carolina.)

"I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days. My fans mean everything to me," Thicke said in a statement earlier this week. "I'm looking forward to getting back on out on the road and performing in Washington DC this Thursday, and the rest of the tour. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!"

The couple, who have been together for nine years, announced their separation on Monday, saying, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

Thicke met Patton when he was 14, and the two were married in 2005. They have one son together, 3-year-old Julian Feugo.
