Since the initial announcement of separation, Robin Thicke and his wife actress Paula Patten have been trying to keep a low profile.  Until now.

Now, Robin Thicke is speaking on the matter and addressed fans on his official website thanking them for their well wishes and support.

“I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days.  My fans mean everything to me. I’m looking forward to getting back on out on the road and performing in Washington D.C., this Thursday, and the rest of the tour. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!”


Meanwhile, the singer has cancelled three shows since he and wife released the joint statement about their split.   While Robin claims the cancellations were due to throat problems, sources close to him say he flew to Vancouver where his wife is filming her new movie, Warcraft, to try and sort things out with her.

In other news, an ongoing custody trial involving Akon’s brother, Def Jam Vice-President of A&R Abou “Bu” Thiam and his ex, Ariel Hakim may lead to several high-profile artists’ financial info getting publicized.  Radar Online is reporting that Ms. Hakim is looking to get more child support for the couple’s daughter.  According to reports, she believes Bu makes more than the $30,000/month salary he claimed court.

Because of that, her legal team is asking for “all documents of any participation of employment with Def Jam Records”.  If they get what they want, that could expose personal and financial info of Def Jam artists Bu has worked with, like Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna and several others.

That's not all.  Listen to Tha Wire now for more details on this and all of the above now.
