Buzz about Thicke’s follow-up to 2013’s Blurred Lines album being titled Paula surfaced last week.
His five-months-and-counting separation from wife Paula Patton has prompted him to write and produce an entire album dedicated to winning her back. And just so there’s no confusion about whom his seventh solo LP is devoted to, he’s naming it Paula. That’s right. After debuting the album’s heartfelt single, “Get Her Back,” Thicke is stepping things up a notch for that elusive second chance. (MTV)
Paula recently admitted always having a special place in her heart for Thicke.
Patton grew up in Los Angeles, where she met Thicke, her life partner of two decades, at an 18-and-under nightclub when she was 15 and he was 14. Before their first kiss, he sang Jodeci’s “Forever My Lady” to her in his dad Alan’s living room. “He wasn’t my first kiss,” says Patton, “but he was my first lots of other things.” … Will the couple remain apart? Patton says only, “We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there–always was, and always will be.” (Vanity Fair)
The couple announced their shocking break-up via a statement in mid-February.
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are ending their longtime marriage. “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the couple tell PEOPLE on Monday in an exclusive statement. The pair, who first met when Thicke was 14, have been married since 2005 and welcomed son Julian Fuego in April 2010. The singer, 36, long had been very expressive about his marriage to the actress, 38, saying last fall, “We’re pretty sure we’ve loved each other for a few lives.” (People)
