Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Split After 8 Years of Marriage

Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton are ending their marriage after eight and a half years, her rep confirms to

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the couple told People in a statement.

Robin and Paula met nearly 22 years ago and have been married since 2005. They are the parents to one son named Julian who was born in April 2010.

There have been rumors swirling about the couple’s marriage ever since his racy video for “Blurred Lines” was released and then his scandalous performance with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs last year, but they persevered through those times together.

Robin and Paula were last seen together attending the 2014 Grammy Awards a few weeks ago.

    I’m on Paula’s side with this. I guarantee Robin has been acting like a playboy ever since Blurred Lines became big. There was no way Paula was alright with his repulsive actions with Miley.

    Not a fan or fond of either one of them but I don’t wish the breakup of any relationship unless it’s abusive. That said, If anyone failed to see this coming then even Stevie Wonder is ready to pop you one! You can’t tell me he had self control while shooting “Blurred Lines” OR when he had his hands up that woman’s dress. Puhleessse! He finally got the fame he’s been shooting for and I think the temptation is just to much to pass up.

    I think the last straw was him being pictured kissing some girl at a party. The success of Blurred Lines went to his head.

    God, they’ve known each other forever. Sad.

    They’ve been on and off 22 years, high school sweethearts, married for nearly 10, they have a child and survived a miscarriage already together….he finally gets a little bit of fame and they split. I’m not sure what goes on behind their closed doors, no one does, so I’m not solidly saying why they broke up….but he displayed some pretty trashy behavior since the fame of “Blurred Lines”, and there have been so many pictures that lead me to believe he wasn’t quite faithful. It’s said what fame can do to a couple, how parties can succumb to Hollywood trashiness that can ruin a relationship between two people who have spent nearly a quarter of their life together. I hope they actually are decent with each other so that can raise their son without too much drama, but if there was cheating on either sides (although I think it’s all Robin), then I’m glad they are ending that toxic relationship. I’ve always thought Paula to be pretty but kind of ditzy in interviews (she might not be, but that’s the impression she gives off) so that’s why I chalked it up to when she was standing by his VMA decision with Miley, etc. etc. I thought she was just publicly standing by her man. Now I’m second-guessing that she was being sincere. She was probably only putting on an act to show a united front because I honestly can’t see how a woman raising her child with a man can support all those crazy changes that Robin has showed. It’s like now that he feels “wanted” by so many women, he’s having some early mid-life crisis and trying to tap everything that offers and doing that old man hip shaking move whenever he can. Watch yourself Robin. You might break something.

    Please – the ass groping he did with other women – Miley’s VMA performance with him has NOTHING to do with this break up – he is the definintion of a trashy cheater of a man!

    @Effy: if you think antics on a stage are enough to end an entire marriage, good luck to you when you get married.

    Paula wins Says:

    I hope she gets full custody of that baby and takes him to the cleaners and wipes out his assets. She deserves nothing less. He’s a major cheater and a bast a r d for doing that to her and his son.

    Love The Shoes Says:

    @Ugonna Wosu: Ugonna Wosu, if you think a spouse is just to accept bad improper behavior just because of some asinine wrongheaded belief that “ifs just the nature of the game” then sad for you when you get married.

    This is so very sad! If you truly love somebody, would you not stick to your marital covenant?? Does marriage means anything to anybody anymore??

    Does he not remember what it was like growing up without his mother and father in the same household? Like father – like son???

    Give the little boy a chance to grow up to be a real gentleman, who respects ladies, and loves himself enough to love and be in love with only one woman – His wife!!

    Poor little Julian, he does not stand a snowball chance in hell!!

    WOW, the generational curse continues!!
