Robin Thicke performed Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ for his ex wife at a gig in Atlantic City over the weekend (March 2).
The singer announced that he and his wife, actress Paula Patton, would be separating at the end of last month.
Performing on Sunday at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, the singer – who was reportedly still wearing his wedding ring, responded to a heckler who shouted “I love Paula!” by saying, “I do too,” and then launched into his own version of ‘Let’s Stay Together’.
As Billboard reports, this isn’t the first time Thicke has brought up his estranged wife onstage. Last week at a gig in Fairfax, Virginia, the singer told the crowd that he’d written his track ‘Lost Without U’ for Patton. “For y’all that don’t know, me and my wife separated,” he said. “But I’m trying to get my girl back. She’s a good woman.”
Thicke and Patton married in 2005 and have a son, Julian Fuego, who will celebrate his fourth birthday next month. They got together when Thicke was 16.
