Robin Thicke Completely Opens Up About Paula Patton, watch full interview below:
Last time he saw Paula:
I try to keep most of that private but I haven’t seen her for four months, man. We cool. She’s the best girl in the world, great mother and still a good friend. But because we just weren’t ever together anymore, I still had so much to apologize for and things I wanted to take responsibility for. But I still wanna wish her well and let her know she’s a great person and she deserves to have a great life, so it’s not all a negative album.
The album is exactly what happens when you lose the love of your life and you trying to figure it out in your head. ‘How am I gonna get through it all.’
On if she’s heard the album:
She hasn’t heard it. She’s only heard a few songs and I don’t think she wants to hear it right now. I think she probably, I can’t speak for her, but I think space is an important part of the healing process.
On messing up their relationship:
I’m a man and I messed up and I had to lie for a while and then I stopped lying. That was actually good for me because I was tired of lying so this whole album is me revealing everything.
I think the only thing different with this album is, it’s never her fault. In real life, relationships aren’t like that, but in this point of our relationship, the only reason we’re not together is because of choices I made.
I knew exactly what I had. It’s not that simple. After 20 years, it didn’t work for 20 years because it wasn’t right. It was right, but sometimes people grow apart. You don’t build love in a day and you don’t lose it in a day.
[Cheating] is not why we’re apart. We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore, for a while. There’s a hundred different reasons. There isn’t just one. There’s a long list. I changed and I got a little too selfish, too greedy, too full of myself.
