Remember back in the good old days of fun “Blurred Lines” Robin Thicke? Yeah, not so much anymore. We’ve been documenting Robin Thicke’s sad downward spiral ever since he and his wife Paula Patton separated, and at this point, he’s pretty much just using every creative endeavor or public appearance to make an impassioned plea to win back his estranged wife — even going so far as to name his upcoming album after her.

So it’s no surprise that last night’s performance at the BET Awards was more of the same, as he dedicated his song “Forever Love” to Patton, and Us Weekly can go ahead and provide the gory details:

Looking tired and puffy eyed, the heartbroken crooner continued his very public reconciliation attempt, announcing to the crowd at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre, “Good evening, my name is Robin Thicke, I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, ‘I miss you, and I’m sorry.’ This is called ‘Forever Love.'”

An audience member says the star’s emotional state was the talk of the show. “Robin appeared to be crying during and after his performance,” the observer told Us Weekly.

To be completely honest, when it comes down to it I am really just not comfortable with dealing with raw human emotions like this, so I’m just going to let Hank Hill stand in for me.


The video is on the next page due to autoplay, if you can even handle that much sadness.
