Robin Thicke is waving the white flag ... telling people in his camp his marriage to Paula Patton has collapsed.
Thicke certainly gave a strong sign the union is over by listing his L.A. home Monday. Paula has not lived in the house since their separation in February, after that grab-ass pic became public.
Sources connected with Robin tell TMZ ... an attorney is already working on a financial settlement -- separating assets.
Our sources say, however, neither side has hired a divorce lawyer.
Thicke is saying he will NOT be the one who files for divorce ... she'll have to do it. But he says he's done begging and is moving on.

7/23/2014 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Big Brother" producers broke the news to Ariana Grande's brother late Wednesday that his grandfather passed away -- and the whole 'BB' house is rallying around him.
TMZ broke the story earlier today ... Frankie Grande's grandpa died on Tuesday, but Ariana obeyed his final wish -- to keep his death secret from Frankie, and allow him to continue on 'BB.'
But this evening producers passed a note to Frankie from his family ... which revealed the sad news.
According to bloggers watching the 'BB' live feed -- Frankie broke down in tears and shared the news with everyone else in the house. Some of the other house guests are crying too.
Frankie's grandfathers death has hit Zach. Zach is crying in the lounge alone. Zach: "This sucks!" #BB16— BigBrotherLeak (@BigBrotherLeak) July 24, 2014
It's extremely rare for "Big Brother" producers to break quarantine and allow contestants to get news from the outside world. One of the only times we can remember it happening is for 9/11.
Still unclear at this point who made the final call in this case. We've reached out to producers ... but, so far no word back.
I'm Ready to Cop a Plea
In My Musical Melee Trial
31 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Shia LaBeouf is working out a plea deal in his Broadway meltdown last month ... so says the prosecutor in the disorderly conduct case.
Shia was in court Thursday AM ... and something weird came up. Shia's lawyer groused there was a notation in the file about Shia not standing up ... presumably at the last court hearing. Everyone was vague about it ... but not standing up when the judge walks in is a sign of disrespect.
Shia's lawyer appeared to say it was not true ... and based on what we know, he's right.
As for the plea deal ... the judge is giving both sides until Sept. 10 the hash it out.
As you know ... Shia was kicked out of a performance of "Cabaret" after drunkenly confronting people on stage and in the audience ... then spitting and swearing at cops, allegedly yelling, "Do you know who the f*** I am?"
Shia is now in an outpatient program and seems to be doing a lot better.

Disney Star Orlando Brown
Cops Say Audio Proves
Actor Made Death Threats
7/24/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Disney star Orlando Brown is in the crosshairs of prosecutors after an audiotape surfaced in which he allegedly threatens to kill a woman, her daughter and her mom.
Police were called to the woman's North Hollywood apartment Monday just after midnight. The woman claimed the "That's so Raven" star was going nuts outside. Neighbors also called 911, one of whom claimed Brown had a weapon.
TMZ has obtained a copy of the audio -- which police have forwarded to the L.A. City Attorney -- in which a man threatens, "I'll kill you, your mama, your daughter, everybody."
Brown's rep tells TMZ the actor insists he's not the one on the audio, but cops disagree. Our police sources say they believe it is indeed Brown and they've forwarded the case to the City Attorney.
Brown says the woman is a stalker who has been "excessively" texting him, and he went to her apartment to explain to her boyfriend nothing was going on between them.
Brown has had his share of legal troubles. He served jail time for failing to complete his alcohol ed class in connection with a DUI.
My Landlord PAINTED Over
7/24/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sean Stewart is ready to fight his landlord in court who is going after him for back rent ... claiming she shamelessly painted over dangerous mold ... mold that made him sick.
Stewart's landlord posted an eviction notice on Sean's door July 16, after he failed to pay July rent totaling $2,995. Stewart says he bailed a month ago because of the mold danger.
Stewart says he had the money to pay but didn't because it's his legal right ... he complained several times about the mold but all the landlord did was paint over it. So Sean exercised his right under California law to move out without giving notice ... because the apt. posed a serious health risk.
He says he's been feeling weak for months and developed red blisters on his skin ... all because of the mold.
We reached out to Stewart's landlord for comment ... so far, no word back.

Janis Winehouse says she's totally cool with the random drug and alcohol paraphernalia littering Amy's old house ... in addition to leaving posters, graffiti, candles and photos.
Hordes of people have visited the house at 30 Camden Square in London -- where Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 -- leaving beer cans, empty bottles of Jack Daniels, Smirnoff and packs of smokes.
Janis -- who runs an anti-drug and alcohol foundation with Amy's dad -- says she's not upset by the homage ... in fact, it makes her happy that Amy's fans still care.

Drescher claims she wasn't trying to hurt anyone with her prosthetic projectile.
But you gotta see her reaction ... when she discovers some guys get their rocks off ... by watching women who take it off ... their leg, that is.

Rich Homie Quan wasn't lashing out at a fan when he smacked a guy at a concert earlier this month ... he was dishing out justice to a dude he says was TRYING TO ROB HIM.
As we reported ... Quan was performing on stage in Racine, Wisconsin July 4 when someone in the crowd grabbed his arm. It appeared the man was trying to pull himself on stage.
But a rep for Quan tells TMZ ... the guy wasn't trying to steal the limelight ... he was trying to steal Quan's watch ... right off his wrist. And that's why the rapper knocked him upside the head.
Quan himself tells us: "The person that tried to rob me was not one of my fans. My fans are loyal to me. I did what anyone else would do if they were being robbed."
