Robin Thicke
Thicke said he wants to win his wife back.

Robin Thicke has been going all out to mend his relationship with his estranged wife Paula Patton.

Earlier in the week, the couple announced they had decided to separate after eight years of marriage.

It was revealed that Patton had felt "utterly disrespected" by the Blurred Lines singer's raunchy on stage antics with Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMA's and an incriminating photo with socialite Lana Scolaro was apparently the last straw.

A source said that the spilt was Patton's idea and that Thicke wanted to save his marriage.

For y'all that don't know me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman.

The 36-year-old, who has cancelled three concerts during his US tour in the wake of the announcement, took to the stage for his first concert since their split and paid an emotional tribute to his wife.

"For y'all that don't know me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman," he said at the gig in Fairfax, Virginia yesterday (28 February).

He then sang Lost Without U after revealing he had written the song for his wife.

The singer was still wearing his wedding ring, in stark contrast to Patton who had earlier arrived at LAX Airport without hers.

He has since been bombarding his wife's West Hollywood home with elaborate floral gifts and flew to Canada, where she is currently shooting, in a bid to win her back.

The couple have been married eight years and have a three-year-old son together.

People magazine have reported that the split may not lead to divorce.

"Who knows what will happen? They do love each other. They are very good friends and will continue to be as strong and as good friends as they can be," a source said.

"They still admire each other. She'll always be his biggest fan and he'll always write songs about her and put her on a pedestal."

The couple issued a joint statement on Monday (24 February) stating: "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

They have one son together, Julian, who is almost three.
