Robin Thicke may be breaking up with his fans along with wife Paula Patton.

The “Blurred Lines” singer canceled yet another show on his U.S. tour earlier this week, the third consecutive show in a row to be scrapped.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Robin Thicke will postpone his performance at Harrah’s Cherokee,” the casino announced on its Web site. “This concert will be rescheduled and the new date announced as soon as possible.” Thicke also bowed out of shows last week in Atlanta and Orlando, citing vocal problems.

“I never want to let down my fans, but I have unfortunately lost my voice and cannot perform,” said Thicke, who announced on Monday that he and Patton are separating. “We will always love each other and be best friends,” the singer and his actress wife told US Weekly in a statement. “However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”

Thicke sky-rocketed to fame last year with his hit “Blurred Lines,” but once in the public eye, rumors of his cheating ways began to hound the singer —  all of which he  denied.  “Seventy-five percent of my songs are about how much I love my wife and how much I need her. We’ve been married for eight years, and together since we were 16. We’re very lucky to have the greatest friendship; we’re John and Yoko — whatever that is — that’s who she is to me,” he told Vanity Fair in October.

If these keeps up, the Boston University students who started a petition to cancel Thicke’s March 4 concert there — on complaints of his “misogynist music” — might not have anything to worry about.
