Robin Thicke gives up on Paula Patton: ‘He’s done begging & is moving on’

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke has finally given up, y’all. He’s done stalking his estranged wife, Paula Patton, with creepy videos and his artistic” endeavors. Robin really thought that the #GetHerBack campaign would make Paula forget about him groping randoms and hitting on “young” chicks. It didn’t work, thank goodness. And Robin’s album flopped so hard. His career is now a PR disaster because no one wants to buy an album full of “songs to stalk by.” He may be able to one day salvage his R&B/soul fanbase, but it will take a lot of redemption. As for Robin’s marriage to Paula? He’s finally given up on making it work:

Robin Thicke is waving the white flag … telling people in his camp his marriage to Paula Patton has collapsed.

Thicke certainly gave a strong sign the union is over by listing his L.A. home Monday. Paula has not lived in the house since their separation in February, after that grab-ass pic became public.

Sources connected with Robin tell TMZ … an attorney is already working on a financial settlement — separating assets.

Our sources say, however, neither side has hired a divorce lawyer.

Thicke is saying he will NOT be the one who files for divorce … she’ll have to do it. But he says he’s done begging and is moving on.

[From TMZ]

The family home really is up for sale. You can see photos of the house here (it looks less tacky than I expected). I am impressed at how Paula has gone off the radar during this whole mess. No one has seen her since Oscar weekend (shortly after they announced the separation). She pulled out of public life and let Robin make a fool of himself like a champ. He did it to himself, so I can’t feel bad for the guy. He probably still doesn’t “get it” either. The only reason he’s waving the flag is because his career is now in the hole. If Paula had been a commercial hit, he’d feel vindicated and wouldn’t have given up yet.

Oh, and I just checked 1-800-Flowers, and they finally pulled their Robin-themed bouquets. Good.

    About time. Leave Paula alone, she doesn’t want to be with you anymore.

  2. littlemissnaughty says:

    Didn’t know she had it in her. Interesting how doing nothing always comes off classier than anything else. Sandra Bullock knew it, Liberty Ross knew it, and of course, Elin Nordegren knew it.

    This guy though. Ugh.

    • Brittaki says:

      That’s so true. Look how respectable the ladies you mentioned look compared to, say, Brandi Glanville.

      • may234 says:

        Elin is an absolute example of class.

        However, Brandi wanted and desperately needed to make a living. She is a completely different person from the those women you’ve mentioned above in that she probably doesn’t even know what is classy. I read a few pages of her book where she talks about how she needed to downgrade and make adjustments after the divorce because she didn’t have all that money anymore. One of her examples of such “adjustment” was to lease a luxury car, which she called “baby steps, people, baby steps…” So I wouldn’t even expect anything logical from her.

    Good because she gave up on him a while ago. I’ve always heard that they had an open marriage, so I wonder what broke the camel’s back.

    • pix says:

      I seeing pictures of her husband’s finger in a random girl a$s might have been the tipping point.

      • FLORC says:

        Wonder that too. If it was true they had an understanding of an opened (but private) relationship that could be the case. He let the fame make him feel untouchable and Paula could have felt discarded or publicly humiliated.

        Great for her letting Robin make a fool of himself.

        Kinda love how this is to sound like he’s letting her go. Like he had a real choice.

        I didn’t hate the “Expressions Of Pink” bouquet, but the name is terrible.

    • TheCountess says:

      In general, most open relationships operate around a guiding principle: You don’t do something that embarrasses your partner. His behavior after the MTV Awards seemed to be constantly pushing up against that rule.

    • Kosmos says:

      Good for her !! He was over the top with his public displays with other women… humiliating is that ? Even if they had an open marriage, he did not use good judgment, partied too much and drank too much. I’m certain that there must have been a long history of this before Paula finally had had enough……Robin can go on to embarrass someone else now, or just play the field, as he seems to want to do anyway. I used to love his first big song, thought they were a great couple until I realized he would fondle other women in public, gag, what a huge turnoff, not only for me, but for all the other people who followed Robin.

  4. Bridget says:

    This is one of thr most publicly embarrassing episodes I’ve ever seen. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think this move just makes it clear that his begging album was NOT about actually getting Paula back, but a horribly conceived marketing scheme to get his female fans back.

      If it was really about HER, his attempts wouldn’t end with the massive failure of his album.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        That’s what I think, too. It was never about her.

      • Belinda says:

        Exactly. I saw a board where the comments ripped into Paula for being “cold hearted” and my favorite “a feminazi” (yep!). The general theme was that he is only a man and he made a mistake and SHE is being vindictive in her silence. Oh and also she is embarrassing HIM by not responding. The less said about that site the better. But yes, in the minds of some very lonely and intellectually challenged women he has redeemed himself.

      • pwal says:

        Imagine that-women dogging another woman for drawing a line in the sand and following through on it.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Belinda, that is terrible! Ugh!

      • tessy says:

        That must have been written by a man.

  5. FingerBinger says:

    This time last year Robin had it all. He had the wife and a massively huge career. This has been a spectacular fall in such a short time.

  6. Hotpockets says:

    I thought his song, “get her back” had a double meaning to it. The obvious message is that he wants to win back his wife’s love, the other being that he will do anything to humiliate her publicly, even with thinly veiled threats disguised as heartbroken lyrics.

    I think the imagery in his music video in context with the lyrics and private text messages he made public upon releasing the video shows how controlling and manipulative he really is. There is a scene where there is a women who resembles Paula drowning in a pool of water, fighting for her life and at the end, there is a message that says “this is just the beginning.” I find the whole thing disturbing and could be a huge indicator as to why we have not seen Paula.

    I doubt Robin is really the heartbroken and devastated man he is portraying to be right now. This is all about control for him. He has a carefully crafted image and now with his wife gone, his relevancy has dwindled.

    • pwal says:

      He’s not heartbroken. He’s just waiting for the right moment to pin this all on Paula. After all, the hip-hop community is renowned for implying or flat-out condemning Black women for one thing or another. Paula will be accused of being too stubborn, too hard, too unreasonable, etc. for not laughing off his public digital corn-holing of some random. This argument could placate the males, but women will remember how she tried to explain away the way he publicly disrespected her. When Paula comes back out in public, I think part of her statement/image rehab should include referencing her behavior during the Miley debacle and how stupid it was to engage in that behavior.

      • Hotpockets says:

        I’m relieved that his PR strategy to win her back (humiliate her) has completely backfired on him and it’s obvious his intentions were not sincere. This whole public display really shows how abusive and unhealthy their relationship really was, not to mention how quiet she has been throughout the whole thing is telling.

    As Grumpy Cat likes to say:


  8. Anon says:

    You realize what could happen here.. After no attention and all this crazy Paula may decide she wants him back. Crazier things have happened. They both step back from it all.. Just never say never.

  9. skeksis says:

    Begging = Harassment

    This guy is a creep.

    • TheCountess says:

      I wish I could remember exactly how a couple of the Grantland guys described the album in their podcast. It was something like, “A musical restraining order.”

  10. shannon says:

    I never in a million years thought she had this in her. Good for her. Stay strong, Paula.

  11. Kate2 says:

    About 3 months and a lifetime of dignity and self respect too late.

  13. kri says:

    Please god, don’t let me ever see another pic of this man elbow deep in some random’s ass. He is vile. I hope Paula is enjoying herself-she deserves it after this fool.

  14. mar says:

    I am in the same situation as Paula. I dumped my long time husband after he humiliated me time and time again. Now he is all over FB crying about me. What a giant a ss. Now I have an amazing man that puts me on a pedestal. If I continued to be weak I would still be miserable.
    I am happy for Paula

  15. Fan says:

    Paula is beautiful. I would love to see her again in a movie.

  16. Pandy says:

    I feel badly that they have a child together, but I don’t know if I could stay once a picture like that has been made public. That’s really humiliating for her.

  17. Leaflet says:

    I think that the “open relationship” rumor probably borders just about every Hollywood relationship out there, well the ones involving the young ones at least. For some reason, I just don’t believe Paula and Robin had an open relationship. I believe she considered the grinding and video chicks “just work” regarding his career because he is an entertainer. Also, because she is an actress, I can even somewhat see why she would have considered the Miley Cyrus performance with her husband and even the blurred lines video as being “just apart of the job”.
    After all, she is an actress. What I believe is that when she saw the proof of him in the club with his hand up that woman’s skirt, she probably thought to herself, hold on he’s not shooting a video. Why is my husband’s hand up that woman’s skirt? Also, the public backlash Robin received, and the public humiliation Paula experienced because the public was beginning to perceive her as a weak woman and a doormat commonly used by her douchebag hubby, all played a factor in her leaving her husband for good.
