This is starting to become embarrassing ... Robin Thicke is still going on and on about the importance of forgiveness in a relationship -- all in an attempt to make amends with his ex Paula Patton.
Thicke performed to a packed house Friday night in Madison Square Garden ... and started preaching to the crowd about forgiving your family members ... no matter what the cause.
Thicke says, "We gotta learn to forgive each other, learn to love each other ... no matter who it is in your family or relationship ... 'cause you're always gonna need your friends and family."
... and a good divorce lawyer.
Justin & Selena
Starbuck Each Other in Texas
3/7/2014 12:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back at it again -- eyewitnesses tell TMZ, the on-off-on-off-again couple has been canoodling all morning in Texas ... hitting up a Starbucks together and a local breakfast joint.
Selena Instagrammed the Starbucks photo about 15 minutes ago -- and sources inside the Starbucks tell us Selena was there with Bieber in the last hour.
Bieber and Selena were also spotted leaving a place called Royal Perfume. Sources inside the store tell us, Bieber bought 2 colognes (Obsession by CK and Pour Homme by Givenchy).
Selena's performing Saturday night in Hidalgo, TX -- 15 minutes from the McAllen, TX Don Pepe's she just hit up with Justin for breakfast. It's unclear if Justin bee-lined from Miami to Hidalgo just to see Selena, but it definitely appears that way.
Bieber has no other reason to be in Texas -- Usher is performing Saturday too, but that's 5 hours away from Hidalgo.
As we reported, Bieber stormed out of his deposition in Miami Thursday after lawyers for the photog who's suing the singer grilled him about Selena. He refused to answer any Selena questions.
It's Mel to the Rescue
In Bankruptcy Case
3/5/2014 2:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Mel Gibson may end up saving the woman who ruined him.
Oksana Grigorieva just filed docs in her bankruptcy case, claiming she can only afford $372 a month to repay her debts -- listed at $438,000 -- but at that rate, it will take her nearly a hundred years to make good.
So, Oksana is asking the court to clear the balance of her debts after 5 years -- when she'll only have repaid $22,320 ... or 5% of her total debt ... most of which she owes to the lawyers she employed in her war against Mel.
The funny part ... Mel is currently paying Oksana $20,000 a month in child support for their daughter Lucia -- so if she gets what she's asking for in the bankruptcy case, she could clear her debt in one fell swoop with a single child support check from her one time sugar daddy.
So the lawyers get screwed, Mel gets screwed and Oksana ... well, that's just what she does.
Khloe and Lamar
Together Again ...
As Crime Victims
3/4/2014 3:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are united again ... as victims of a quarter-of-a-million dollar jewelry heist.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone pilfered watches and gold chains inside the former couple's Tarzana home ... which has sat empty for more than a month.
Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.
I'm Not Mad at Rihanna
For Banging Drake Again
3/4/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown is all good with Drake doing the midnight jockey ride with Rihanna -- even though she caused MAJOR BEEF between them for years.
Sources close to Chris tell TMZ ... the singer is copacetic over the duo rekindling their romance. Chris has his mind on his money ... focusing on making a comeback.
You'll recall ... all the quien es mas macho over Rihanna triggered an all-out war at WIP nightclub in NYC back in 2012 ... when the Brown/Drake posses got into a bottle throwing fight.
TMZ broke the story ... doctors at the rehab facility where he just finished a 90-day stint have diagnosed the singer with bipolar disorder.
Maybe the meds are working.
I'm Still In Lust With Selena
3/3/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber just can't quit Selena Gomez ... he lustfully posted pics of his ex-GF at an Oscar party ... even though he's 2000 miles away in Atlanta
The pic shows Gomez at the Vanity Fair party last night in West Hollywood -- where she showed up in a gold, beaded Pucci gown -- with the caption, "Most elegant princess in the world."
Could be Justin's just jonesing for his old life in L.A. -- which once included Selena?
The feeling may not be mutual ... Gomez -- who went to rehab in Jan. partly over her Bieber addiction -- has kept her distance from Justin and his new crew.
See, I Told You I'm Being Good!!

Robin Thicke is on a mission to prove he's done playing grab-ass with chicks while touring ... so he hit up a local b-ball court before his concert Saturday night to shoot hoops with a bunch of dudes.
Thicke stopped by a gym in Connecticut and messed around on the court with the Norwich Free Academy's boys basketball team ... and according to reports he was a pretty decent shooter.
As we previously reported ... Robin is trying to show Paula Patton he can be a good husband and change. For her part, we know she told him she wants a divorce, but she hasn't hired a divorce lawyer -- yet -- and she hasn't completely closed the door.
Might as well start with his jump shot.
Robin Won't Get Me Back By Crying
3/2/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke can cry all he wants on stage about his love for Paula Patton ... but it's not going to change her mind about leaving him ... sources tell TMZ. For that ... he has to do something else.
Sources connected with the couple tell us ... Paula is unimpressed with Robin telling both TMZ and thousands of concertgoers he's trying to win her back.
Here's the good news for Robin. Although she TOLD him she wanted a divorce, she hasn't hired a divorce lawyer yet and she's open to reconciliation.
BUT ... before she takes him back, Robin has to prove his loyalty to her ... by his actions. She's keeping tabs on him at his concerts, watching who he hangs with, which parties he attends -- especially the after parties -- and what photos surface.
We're told Paula knows photogs have their cameras trained on Robin, and she views the paparazzi are her private detectives.
You know the drill, Robin.
Gushes On Stage ...
I'm Lost Without Paula
2/28/2014 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke got back to performing tonight and wasted no time using the stage to beg for Paula Patton's mercy ... opening up to the crowd about the break-up and dedicating a song to her.
Thicke wore his wedding ring through the show in Fairfax, VA and told the crowd -- "For y'all that don't know me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman."
He also told fans he'd written the song "Lost Without U" for Paula ... before launching into the hit -- which we gotta say is kinda the perfect song for a guy trying to get back on a chick's good side.
Then again, Paula's heard this tune a hundred times.
Robin Lays it On Thicke with
2/28/2014 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke is GUILTY of a floral assault ... bombarding his estranged wife with begging-for-forgiveness bouquets ... at least that's the way it seems.
Paula Patton's Hollywood Hills home was inundated with gigantic, expensive floral arrangements Thursday ... hours before Robin got on stage and told the audience he's gunning to get his girl back.
True enough ... it's possible Robin didn't send the flowers, but it would be remarkably coincidental that they came from someone else.
Typically people don't send beautiful bouquets when a woman dumps her hubby.

It reached the point of no return last week -- at least for Paula. As we reported ... Robin is pulling out all the stops to change her mind, but we're told she wants out of the marriage.
All Smiles After Split
NO WEDDING RING
2/27/2014 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The couple announced they were splitting this week -- and as we reported, the marriage meltdown stemmed from Robin's scandalous behavior with other women ... Miley Cyrus in particular.
Robin has pulled out all the stops to save his marriage -- canceling several tour dates -- but Paula's not budging.
