After "Paula" Fiasco, Robin Thicke Is Letting Paula Patton Have Her Space

Robin Thicke has had it rough lately – well, apart from the money, fame and fans, that is. Despite all that, though, headlines would have us believe that Thicke’s marriage is in shambles. Enter Paula, Thicke’s new album, dedicated solely to apologizing to estranged wife Paula Patton for… well, you know.

Thicke admits the breakup was on him, but knows to give Patton her space.

“The album is what happens when you lose the love of your life and you try to figure out in your head like, ‘How am I gonna move on?’” Thicke told Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning” show. “Because we weren’t together anymore, I had so much that I still wanted to apologize for and take responsibility for and that’s what the album is about.”

Thicke credits the fallout with his wife to his quick rise to international stardom and the way it changed his personality. It all started a year ago, when Blurred Lines became an unexpected, if highly controversial hit.

“Last year was really just kind of a blur in many ways, no pun intended,” he said. “Everything happened so fast and you don’t realize all the things that come with it. I changed and I got a little too selfish and a little too greedy and a little to full of myself. At this point in our relationship, the only reason we’re not together is because of the choices I made.”

Concertgoers have been listening to Thicke's apology songs for a few months now.

Thicke openly admits to his mistakes, but at this point, it sounds like recovering the relationship is out of the question. Even the singer himself sounds like he’s come to terms with the breakup – for now, at least.

“When you lose your family, that’ll slow you down,” he said. “We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore for awhile there’s a hundred different reasons, there isn’t just one. There’s a long list. Sometimes if you’ve been together that long, you kinda became adults together instead of being adults and then meeting. So maybe a year or two off, maybe we’ll become our own people without each other and then it will be meant to be.”
