The Blurred Lines hitmaker confirmed on Monday (24Feb14) that he has separated from his actress wife after nearly nine years.
The shock news came after voice troubles prompted him to scrap a string of shows over the weekend (21-23Feb14), but he was back on the road on Thursday and only had one woman on his mind.
Addressing the crowd at his show in Fairfax, Virginia, he said, "For y'all that don't know, me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman."
Thicke, who was wearing his wedding ring throughout the gig, then sang a moving rendition of his song Lost Without U, which he reportedly wrote about Patton.
Earlier in the day, Thicke told reporters from Tmz.com that he was determined to win back his longtime partner, saying, "You know, I'm just trying to get her back... Just trying to figure it out, man."
