Robin Thicke might be trying to win back Paula Patton’s affections, but in the mean time, both of them are doing their own thing – which is probably better for everyone involved. While Patton made an impression at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards, Thicke apparently stayed away from the barely-dressed ladies (for once).

Rumors about Patton and Thicke's rough patch have been rampant ever since the Blurred Lines fiasco from last year.

Patton took to the Independent Spirits’ blue carpet, dressed in a fitted yellow dress with lace-detailing. Whether she was looking to show Thicke what he’s missing (unlikely) or she just wanted to strut her stuff, it worked. Despite not being nominated for any awards, Patton was one of the stars of the night.

Patton's dress last night said "the show must go on". Loud and clear.

Meanwhile, Thicke was spending time with a whole team of rather manly men. On Saturday night, Thicke was in Connecticut for a show and he used his off-time to go shoot some hoops with the Norwich Free Academy's boys basketball team. He took a couple of shots – of the basketball and the photographic variety and generally seemed to stay out of trouble, TMZ reports. This after Thicke publicly announced his vow to change and be a good husband. And maybe he still has a chance – according to the gossip website, Patton is yet to hire a divorce lawyer. Looks like this story is far from over.

As for Thicke, he's stayed on the wagon for a whole week. Applause ensue.
