The 'Blurred Lines' singer has now axed three consecutive concerts on his North American tour after announcing on Monday that he had parted ways from his wife of almost nine years.

This news comes as Robin was a no-show at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina last night.

The venue issued a statement reading: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Robin Thicke will postpone his performance at Harrah's Cherokee originally scheduled for Tuesday, February 25. This concert will be rescheduled and the new date announced as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience."

He previously scrapped gigs on Friday in Atlanta and Saturday in Orlando, blaming vocal issues, but instead was seen jetting to Vancouver, where actress Paula is currently filming, in a bid to save

his marriage.

The 36-year-old star said last week: "I never want to let down my fans but I have unfortunately lost my voice and cannot perform tomorrow night."

Robin is expected to continue his tour this Thursday at the GMU Patriot Centre in Washington, DC.

The couple - who have three-year-old son Julian together - announced they had "mutually decided to separate at this time", but will remain "best friends".
