*At a concert in Virginia last week, Robin Thicke dedicated his single “Lost Without U” to Paula Patton just days after the couple announced their separation. On Sunday, he reportedly pulled out the big gun to woo her back – Al Green.
At his Sunday concert at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, the 36-year-old – still wearing his wedding ring – took a break mid-concert to interact with the crowd. A fan yelled out to Thicke, “I love Paula!”
The declaration prompted the singer to state one of his own: “I do too,” he said passionately. Following the interaction, he sang Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”

*Robin Thicke is on his Operation Get Paula Back…and for his latest move, he dedicated a song to his wife and spoke about their breakup to a packed crowd in the suburbs of DC.
News broke Monday that Thicke and actress Paula Patton, high school sweethearts, have separated following nine years of marriage. There are also reports that the split was triggered by Thicke’s sexually-charged onstage antics with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The “Blurred Lines” crooner was back performing last night and told crowds in Fairfax, Virginia, he was trying to get back into his wife’s good graces.
‘I’m Just Trying to Get Her Back’
*Days after news of divorce broke through, Robin Thicke is not calling it quits with his marriage to Paula Patton.
The singer, who has been on the receiving end of mixed comments regarding the split, confessed to TMZ that he isn’t ready to end his marriage, saying, “”I’m just trying to get her back.”
Thicke’s admittance came as he arrived in Washington D.C. Thursday afternoon for a concert that night. (Scroll down to watch.)
*Despite a public brushing off her husband Robin Thicke’s sexualized performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards, TMZ is reporting that privately, Paula Patton felt humiliated — and it set in motion the path to their separation.
Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ that Patton felt “utterly disrespected” when Robin virtually simulated sex with Miley on stage. After the performance Paula reportedly got into a blow-out argument with Robin, telling him he insulted her before a huge national TV audience.
What really pissed Paula off is that the performance was a total surprise, notes TMZ. Miley improvised the raunchy part without warning, but Robin played along … and that enraged Paula.
