Robin Thicke breaks silence after split

Posted:

By Breeanna Hare

As his marriage with Paula Patton unravels, Robin Thicke is leaning on his fans for support.

On Wednesday, after pulling out of three previously scheduled performances, Thicke made his first public statement since he announced February 24 that he and his actress wife are separating.

"I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days. My fans mean everything to me," Thicke said in a statement posted to his website Wednesday.

Thicke's instinct to reassure his supporters of their importance makes sense, as the R&B crooner has had to let some of them down. The "Blurred Lines" singer intended to perform last Friday in Atlanta, but he ended up canceling that show and the next one in Orlando that Saturday due to vocal issues.

By Monday, though, his voice wasn't the only troublesome thing. Amid his scrapped sets, Thicke released a joint statement with his now estranged wife to confirm that they were splitting up after close to nine years of marriage.

"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," the couple said Monday.

Thicke was supposed to soldier on to North Carolina on Tuesday, but he pulled out of that gig as well because of "unforeseen circumstances."

Hopefully for Thicke's fans (and those who've bought tickets to see his shows), he'll soon get back on track.

"I'm looking forward to getting back on out on the road and performing in Washington DC this Thursday, and the rest of the tour," Thicke said in his statement Wednesday. "Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!"
