Robin Thicke, who separated from Paulo Patton in Feb 2014, has had a tough time dealing with his personal problems among unprecedented commercial success. But he says he is getting better.
Break ups can be hard especially if they happen after 21 years of togetherness. Thicke and Paula Patton broke up and Patton successfully filed for divorce leaving Thicke disoriented at a time when he was enjoying the most successful year ever with his hit “Blurred Lines.” Grammy nominee Thicke, 38, left no stone unturned to get her back by releasing the album “Paula” which had a not so cryptic message in the lead single “Get Her Back.” Although, Paula was unperturbed and Thicke has decided to take a sabbatical from music and hustle bustle of life.
The divorce agreement has them share the custody of their son, which has been a big positive for Thicke’s life and has helped him calm down.
“I started songwriting and producing and singing professionally when I was 16, and I never really stopped until last year,” Thicke told Good Morning America. “I took some time off to just be with my son and my family. It helps you gain perspective on what’s important in life.”
During the time off, he took his mother, Gloria Loring, on their first holiday together in many years and took his son along. He reveals that is what gave him a perspective in life and made me realize what was most important. After coming back, Thicke is all refreshed and ready for work. He has a new song called “Back Together,” which many fans thought obviously meant about his relationship with Patton, but he says that he didn’t even write the tune and the lyrics mean much more than that. Rather than getting back together with someone it is about getting yourself back together.
