Robin Thicke and Paula Patton broke up back in March, but many fans and industry insiders expressed their suspicions that the couple's marital woes were part of a ploy to promote Robin's new album.
Claims that Robin and Paula faked their separation seemed to be substantiated by Thicke's constant musical pleas to "get her back."
How did he write all these lovelorn songs so fast? Does he expect us to believe that the timing of the split just happened to coincide with the release of his new album?
Well, according to an interview Robin gave New York radio station Hot 97 today, the breakup is real. So real in fact, that he hasn't seen the mother of his child in four months!
"I try to keep most of that private," Robin lies when asked about the separation. "But I haven't seen her in four months."
The interviewers admit they were skeptical, but now seem to take Thicke for his word.
"And you know, we cool," Robin intones in his hilariously affected ghetto drawl. "She's the best girl in the world. Great mother, and still a good friend...But we weren't ever together anymore, and I still had so much I wanted to apologize for..so that's what much of the album is about."
Some might say that Thicke's claims of being "good friends" and having not seen one another in four months are contradictory, but we're beginning to think the singer is sincere in his desire to save his marriage.
Sorry for doubting you, Robin!
