Paula Patton and Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke is trying to spread "love and joy".

The 'Blurred Lines' hitmaker - who recently split from Paula Patton after eight years of marriage - is doing his best to stay positive in the wake of the separation and has promised to continue to treat his estranged spouse "right".

Speaking at his concert at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City on Sunday, Robin - who has three-year-old son Julian with Paula - told the audience: "Never stop believing and you never stop loving. And even if it is over, make sure you treat each other right. Treat your family right. Take care of your mom, take care of your kids and good things will come to you. Just keep believing that God is good.

"That's what gets me by. Sometimes when I get a little scared or worried about the future, I just try to stay positive and do my part to spread love and spread joy."

His speech came ahead of his rendition of Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together' and may have been triggered by an earlier outburst from a fan.

The audience member shouted: "I love Paula."

Robin, who was still wearing his wedding ring, quickly shouted back: "I do too."

Although Robin and Paula issued a statement saying they had "mutually" decided to separate, it has been widely reported that the singer was against the decision and tried his best to persuade the actress to change her mind.
