Robin Thicke has been going through something of a personal crisis of late. His split with wife Paula Patton played out in bold type across gossip rag headlines. Despite his best efforts to win her back, it looks like you can stick a fork in Robin and Paula.
Now a picture is taking shape that could make things even worse. Thicke’s latest album, called Paula, in what seems to be a shameless attempt to get her back, has been roundly panned.
But that’s not all. There have also been concert cancellation concerns from the Thicke camp. Back in February, Thicke backed out on a gig at a casino in North Carolina “due to unforeseen circumstances”.
Then came a concert cancellation in Indiana, the same day that Thicke was spotted on the beach with his son and a mystery woman, whom he later explained to be his nanny.
And now there is news that a show that will presumably go on is discounting tickets. Tickets for the Illinois State Fair concert on August 17 were originally $40 for Tier 3, $45 for Tier 2, and $50 for Tier 1. They have now been discounted to $25 for a Tier 2 or Tier 3 Grandstand seat, $35 for a Tier 1 seat and $45 for a VIP ticket right up at the stage.
Is Thicke’s stock dropping so badly that they have to discount his tickets? At a state fair?
Recently, Robin’s dad Alan spoke out about how he raised his kids and his desire just to see them happy. He backed Robin’s play in dedicating an entire album to his estranged wife.
“My advice to Robin is listen to your heart, do what you feel,” Alan Thicke said. “Follow your heart in love and marriage as you would in careers and you’ll be fine. Robin has a great heart. He’s a fabulous father. He obviously followed his heart in creating and devoting an entire album to Paula and I believe you can’t go wrong that way.”
