Paula Patton is playing hardball with Robin Thicke … which includes keeping her distance.
“I haven’t seen her for four months,” Thicke said on Tuesday during an interview with New York radio station, Hot 97. “We’re cool. She’s the best girl in the world, a great mother and still a good friend, but because we just weren’t ever together anymore and I still had so much I wanted to apologize for and things I wanted to take responsibility for, so that’s pretty much what the album’s about. But I also want to wish her well and let her know that she’s a great person and she deserves to have a good life.”
Some might call the singer’s recent antics to get his wife back “desperate,” but for Thicke, who titled his latest album after the actress, it’s his way of winning his high school sweetheart back. “The album is exactly what happens when you lose the love of your life and you’re trying to figure it out in your head to move on and get through it all … sometimes it’s about her and sometimes I’m talking directly to her.”
When asked if Paula has heard the album, he responded, “I don’t think she wants to hear it right now. I can’t speak for her, but I think space is an important part of any healing process.”
During the interview, Robin, who pled for his wife’s forgiveness during his performance at the BET Awards, was candid about what went wrong in their marriage. “I changed, and I got a little too selfish, a little too greedy and little too full of myself,” the 37-year-old explained. “At this point in our relationship, the only reason we’re not together is because of the choices I made … We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore for awhile. There’s a hundred different reasons.”
He added, “I’m a man. 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. This whole album is me revealing everything.”
As for the couple’s separation: “We had an amazing time together, but I just think right now, this is what’s best for our child and for ourselves.”
Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract
Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.
Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four and clarified what really happened.
“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained. “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”
H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”
After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.
They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
