Robin Thicke Is Looking Really Desperate (But His Estranged Wife, Paula Patton, Is All Smiles)

Robin Thicke is on a mis­sion to show his wife, Paula Pat­ton, that he’s will­ing to do any­thing to get her back. The celebrity cou­ple announced at the end of Feb­ru­ary 2014 that they were sep­a­rat­ing after nine years of mar­riage, and although they didn’t spec­ify a rea­son for the split, it’s a safe bet that it has a lot to do with Thicke flirt­ing and even pos­si­bly hav­ing an affair with a younger woman. Now, he’s des­per­ate to prove to his estranged wife that he wants to work on fix­ing their mar­riage, if she’ll just give him another chance.

What bet­ter way for a singer to pro­fess his love than in front of thou­sands of peo­ple? In his first con­cert after the celebrity cou­ple revealed the news of their sep­a­ra­tion, Thicke told the audi­ence that he was try­ing to get his girl back and then ded­i­cated the per­for­mance of his song Lost With­out U to Paula Patton.

Thicke tried the same tac­tic dur­ing another con­cert. Before per­form­ing a ren­di­tion of Al Green’s song Let’s Stay Together, Thicke offered some sound words of advice, some of which he prob­a­bly wished he had thought of before his mar­riage crum­bled. “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,” Thicke told the audi­ence, adding, “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.” Spread­ing “love” is sort of what got Robin Thicke in trou­ble in the first place, but hope­fully his wife doesn’t see it that way.

Mean­while, Paula Pat­ton seems to be doing just fine after the split. She’s been all smiles while attend­ing sev­eral recent high-profile events (with­out Thicke or her wed­ding ring), includ­ing the Inde­pen­dent Spirit Awards and the Van­ity Fair Oscars after-party. Is this offi­cially the end for this celebrity couple?

What do you think: Should Paula Pat­ton give Robin Thicke another chance?
