As you may recall, Paula Patton and Robin Thicke split up in the wake of allegations that he was unfaithful to the couple’s wedding vows. Since that time, Robin has been doing everything he can to try and woo back his estranged wife both in private and in public. Today we learn that Robin’s previous attempts at reconciliation have been unsuccessful so Robin is going to try again … by naming his upcoming new album Paula after his estranged wife. Lorde, the guy just won’t give up, will he?
Just how far will Robin Thicke go to win back Paula Patton? The “Blurred Lines” crooner is proving that his love has no limit by naming his upcoming album after his estranged wife. Paula will be the title of Thicke’s seventh album, Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned. The follow-up to last year’s chart-topper Blurred Lines was written and produced entirely by Thicke and is set to arrive on July 1 via Star Trak/Interscope Records. He debuted the first single, “Get Her Back,” at the Billboard Music Awards last month. The heartfelt tribute was written about Patton, his wife of nine years and the mother of his son Julian. The high school sweethearts announced their split in February. Thicke has been trying for months to mend their relationship, even dedicating “Lost Without U” to Patton at his recent shows. On June 29, the singer will perform some of his new material at the 2014 BET Awards in L.A.
Normally, I’d be impressed with this level of commitment to trying to repair a relationship but Robin just seems to be doing all of these things very wrongly. I don’t think that public declarations at awards shows and album titles are the way to convince a woman that you are sorry for cheating on her (allegedly). Thicke has, for years, called into question his wedding vows to Paula with his questionable behavior with other women — and that’s just the stuff that we the public have witnessed. My guess is that the stuff we don’t know about is much worse, which is why Paula appears completely uninterested in taking him back … which is, apparently, why Robin keeps on trying to get her back. Mess. Clearly, Robin Thicke will do whatever he thinks he needs to do in order to win back his wife. I guess we’ll have to see if his efforts will continue to fall on deaf ears. As for the title of Robin’s new album? What do you think?
