They say, “There’s none so blind as he who will not see.”
Robin Thicke is in serious need of a better set of specks.
Thicke and his estranged wife, actress Paula Patton, were high school sweethearts. They were married eight years before announcing their separation in February. A press statement issued at the time suggested the decision to split was amicable — but, if Robin’s behavior in the months since, are any indication, it’s far from mutual.
The crooner has been on a very public crusade to revive his marriage, even inundating Paula with dozens of long-stemmed red roses and in-concert dedications as she tries to carry on without him. Thicke’s campaign to win back his leading lady now has a music video to go alongside it.
Robin unveiled the spankin-new promo for “Get Her Back” — the lead single off of his upcoming album, entitled (What else?) Paula. The clip features a battered and bloodied Robin and a barrage of (presumably real-life?) text messages sent just as the Thicke-Patton union was imploding.
One message reads, “I kept trying to warn you, you were pushing me too far.” “You drink too much”
and “You embarrassed me,” read two others.
If you’ve been keeping up with your celebrity poop, you already know that Robin’s done plenty to “embarrass” Paula since his hit single “Blurred Lines” shot up the charts last summer. We can start with his raunchy performance with an ass-shakin Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
In August, a photo emerged of the singer groping a socialite’s butt at the VMAs Afterparty. In January, Thicke, 36, was photographed kissing and dirty dancing with yet another woman at a Paris nightclub.
