The 36-year-old singer is desperate to convince his childhood sweetheart to forgive him following a rocky period romance, reportedly beginning when the American vocalist performed at the MTV Video Music Awards with Miley Cyrus last August.
The controversial collaboration saw the pair team up to sing his racy hit Blurred Lines where the former Disney starlet shocked audiences by ‘twerking’ provocatively on him. Now Robin is appealing to the world it seems in an effort to soften her up, addressing the split at a gig on Thursday and bombarding her with flowers.
“She’s a good woman,” he gushed to the crowd at a Fairfax, Virginia concert, after sharing news of his separation.
He reiterated that he was trying to reconcile, which he had told US gossip website TMZ earlier in the day. Father to their three-year-old child, Julian, Robin wore his wedding band throughout the music event and sang his R&B tune Lost Without U. The duo released a statement about their parting of ways to People magazine on Monday.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” a representative said.
Paula, 38, allegedly didn’t only consider her husband’s antics with Miley as a reason to break up. He was pictured placing his hand on what appeared to be socialite Lana Scolaro’s bottom last year, in a snap she shared on Instagram where the offending action was revealed in the reflection of a mirror.
Robin has cancelled a few shows in the US this week since their separation to reportedly see her in Vancouver, Canada where she is recording a new film. The couple have not specified that they have filed for divorce as yet.
