Robin Thicke is thanking his fans for their support following his separation from his wife and canceled tour dates.

The "Blurred Lines" singer posted on his website: "I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days. My fans mean everything to me. I’m looking forward to getting back on out on the road and performing in Washington DC this Thursday, and the rest of the tour. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!"

Thicke and actress Paula Patton announced Monday they are separating after nine years of marriage. They have a 3-year-old son, and Patton was the inspiration behind much of Thicke's music and appeared in some of his videos.

Thicke was set to kick off his tour last week, but he canceled the first two dates because he lost his voice. He also canceled Tuesday's show in Cherokee, N.C., due to "unforeseen circumstances."

According to E! News, Patton told Thicke she wanted to end things last week, which prompted him to fly to Vancouver, where Patton is currently working on a project, to try to work things out.
