*Things for Robin Thicke have gone from bad to worse.
After his public plea (and album) to get his wife Paula Patton back seems to have failed, word has it that some shows on his current tour have been cancelled due to low sales. Back in February, Thicke backed out on a gig at a casino in North Carolina “due to unforeseen circumstances.”
Then came a concert cancellation in Indiana, the same day that Thicke was spotted on the beach with his son and a mystery woman, whom he later explained to be his nanny.
And now there is news that a show that will presumably go on is discounting tickets. Tickets for the Illinois State Fair concert on August 17 were originally $40 for Tier 3, $45 for Tier 2, and $50 for Tier 1. They have now been discounted to $25 for a Tier 2 or Tier 3 Grandstand seat, $35 for a Tier 1 seat and $45 for a VIP ticket right up at the stage.
Recently, Robin’s dad Alan spoke out about how he raised his kids and his desire just to see them happy. He backed Robin’s play in dedicating an entire album to his estranged wife.
“My advice to Robin is listen to your heart, do what you feel,” Alan Thicke said. “Follow your heart in love and marriage as you would in careers and you’ll be fine. Robin has a great heart. He’s a fabulous father. He obviously followed his heart in creating and devoting an entire album to Paula and I believe you can’t go wrong that way.”
