Robin Thicke makes a public apology to his estranged wife

Robin Thicke apologised to estranged wife Paula Patton and dedicated his BET Awards performance to her last night.

The 37-year-old singer, who split from Paula Patton after nine years of marriage in February, dedicated his performance at the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live to his estranged spouse.

Taking to the stage, he said: “Good evening, my name is Robin Thicke. I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, ‘I miss you, and I’m sorry.’ This is called ‘Forever Love.’ “

At the end of the performance, an old picture of the couple – who have four-year-old son Julian together – flashed up on the big screen with the word ‘Paula’ written in huge letters above.

The evening’s host Chris Rock later mocked the morose tone the ‘Blurred Lines’ hitmaker’s music has taken since he split from his spouse.

He said: “He’s singing like she don’t know him. I miss the other song, the one that sounded like Marvin Gaye.”

Robin has named his forthcoming new album ‘Paula’ and has admitted every track on the record is inspired by the 38-year-old actress.

He said: “Obviously all the songs were about her or about how I feel about her. A lot of songwriters have done this kind of thing before. They won’t tell you in the title or they’ll be suggestive…I was just like, ‘There’s no reason to hide who this is about.’ It’s all about her.”

The couple split following rumours Robin was propositioning other women.

The ‘Get Her Back’ hitmaker wore his wedding ring to his album launch party in Los Angeles last week, but Paula did not attend.
