It ain't over — at least according to one half of the year's least surprising celebrity split (so far).
TMZ cameras caught up with Robin Thicke this afternoon at Dulles Airport outside Washington, where he's performing tonight. Dressed in a camel coat, his face plastered with a never-wavering, almost smug grin, he actually uttered a few words about his breakup with Paula Patton.
"Are you and Paula going to work things out," asked the photographer.
"I'm just trying to get her back, man," Thicke said. "I'm just trying to figure it out, man."
"Is it fair to say the VMA performance (with Miley Cyrus) wasn't a cause of anything?" the photog pushed.
Thicke glanced back, still grinning: "No."
