The crowd erupted with cheers following the “Blurred Lines” singer’s declaration.

“She said, ‘You should go out there and tell them the truth. … You should tell them that you tried to get me back,’” he continued, with a laugh. “She’s a good woman”

Adding, “It’s hard to say in front of everybody.”

He then performed the song, “Lost Without U,” which he dedicated to Paula.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Robin and Paula split after nearly nine years of marriage on Monday.

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Paula’s rep said in a statement on behalf of the couple, to Access on Monday.

Robin, 36, and Paula, 38, who were married on June 11, 2005, have one son together, Julian Fuego, who was born April 2010.
