The 37-year-old singer listed his LA home for sale on Monday following months of speculation over the future of his marriage. Patton hasn't lived in the house since she announced her separation from Thicke in February.
Sources close to the "Blurred Lines" star told TMZ that Thicke has alerted his team that his marriage is over and an attorney is reportedly working on separating the couple's assets. The singer, however, does not intend to be the one who files for divorce.
Thicke's change of heart follows months of public announcements trying to get Patton back. The 2 Guns actress is said to have left her husband of nine years after finding out about a photo in which Thicke is seen grabbing a woman's derriere. The picture surfaced after months of criticism over Thicke's Miley Cyrus' raunchy VMA performance leaves viewers, Will Smith's family stunned [VIDEO]">controversial performance with Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV VMA's and followed comments that the lyrics for his song "Blurred Lines" were "rapey."
Thicke's attempt to turn his personal tragedy into a business success -- he wrote an entire album titled Paula for Patton -- ended up backfiring as it only sold a reported 530 copies during its U.K. debut week.
