Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Split After 8 Years of Marriage

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.

    Love The Shoes Says:

    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.

    2 Cents Says:

    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.

    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!!

    Cas Says:

    No one knows why it’s all speculation. Paula is an actress and has kissed several men on screen and been in sexual acts with men on screen and it’s all just acting. Robins video and performances could be acting as well so maybe it really didn’t bother her. Maybe she chucked it up to acting.

    From CDAN

    “I think it’s been pretty obvious over the past couple of years with the number of reveals and the number of blind items that scream Robin Thicke that he is not a faithful guy. I seem to recall that his father had the same type of issues most of his run while being famous, so it shouldn’t come as much of a shock that Robin is the same way. What is surprising for the pinky ringed one is that he’s so bold that he’s perfectly willing to be a pig while his wife is at the same place with him. After the Video Music Awards, Robin and his wife Paula Patton went to a club. Robin took some time away from his wife to meet his fans. Apparently meeting your female fans now includes an obligatory finger up your skirt and ending up who knows where. I bet wish Robin had known about the mirror, but if you think this will stop him, you’re crazy.”

    No surprise. Hey Robin, we hear Fassbender’s RoHo is available for you.

    “It’s been a busy week for Lana Scolaro. She has gone from an absolute nobody to someone who is being interviewed for Life & Style this week and probably is wondering how she can score one of those Vivid porn deals and make herself a few bucks. Lana is the person who is having her genital region fingered by Robin during a photo op. Lana said that the butt grab photo took place a week after they had met and that she and Robin made out the night of the butt grab and that he encouraged her to talk to Paula about everything and that Paula was “chill” with it all and that the three of them went to an after party together and at the party is where Robin hooked up with her in a bathroom before Robin and Paula ended up leaving earlier than planned without Lana. Yeah, that is pretty much what I said happened other than Lana didn’t give a reason why she released the photo.”

    Chris Says:

    @Leigh, marriage is a different thing for different people. But either way, if one part of the partnership is unhappy, why stay in it? Yes there is a child, and yes, single childhood is rough, but they both have enough money that I am sure he will do well. My mother and father stayed together until she died, and tbh, they would have likely been better apart. While they loved each other, she dictated everything in his life, and left no room for argument. Sometimes, couples may love each other, but love isn’t the only thing that holds marriages together.

    only sad bc of their kid Says:

    I do not like Robin Thicke for her. I think he was bringing her down. She’s a beautiful woman and I hope she finds a handsome, decent, family-oriented type of man in her future. Thicke reminds me of the guy who could have been a loser when he was young. I’ll bet he did not get the girls when he was a teenager. Like many have said, he was fine with Paula until he got the fame he’s been craving. It went to his head. But guess what? He’ll find that fame short-lived. He’s not handsome or charming enough to be a real heartthrob. I think that one day he will have many regrets, but for now, he has to learn his life’s lessons. Paula also could have had a much better career. I think both of them have been smoking a lot of pot.

    FFT Says:

    @Chris: This right here. The problem with some people is that they stay together when they shouldn’t, effectively ruining a child’s/children’s early lives by fighting all the time and putting the children in the middle of it. They can still support the children separately. If the household isn’t happy, then why subject the children to the unhappiness and confusion.

    @Love The Shoes: you’re insane. Showbiz is “show”, a lot of it is an ACT. Much like acting. She didn’t have a problem with his “antics”, and I don’t believe ONE performance should be enough to end everything. Even if I agreed it was so offensive, it shouldn’t be enough to end a DECADES long love and marriage. It should take a lot more than that for her to say goodbye. Again, good luck to you.

    trolling trolls Says:

    Miley had nothing to do with this failed marriage that was dead years ago but Paula pretend like it was roses and sh*t. She tried to lie to herself and us that her husband was NOT a DOUCHEBAG extraordinaire which he so is. Where does he buy his clothes douchebag are us or I dress like slimball he looks gross, he is gross I don’t feel bad for her she had done it to herself.

    I just hope she finds a better stylist because just like her taste in husband her style is HORRIBLE. She always looks a mess. She needs to get her sh*t together she has a young boy because all Robin will do now he be his gross disgusting manwh*re self.

    Recycle Says:

    Factors in the breakdown:
    - mediocre career suddenly takes off
    - unstable careers, both parties
    - going out since 15 – boredom
    - open marriage
    - too much pot, both
    - boredom
    - Thicke has serious father issues and wants to break out
    - did I mention being with the same person since 15 and boredom? you have to really like each other to stay that long!

    On the whole these two don’t seem like bad people. Maybe this is better. Thicke can go and sow his wild seeds and Patton doesn’t have to come out all the time and say she stands by her man.

    @Recycle: clearly you need help there are couples who have been together for over 40 years.. thats longer than how long Robin and Paula have been alive.

    I don’t know how much he has, but he’s not a mega millionaire. His home is the one his father use to live in. There’s nothing fancy about it what so ever. They’ve been together since they were about 16, the truth is their marriage lasted longer than a lot of Hollywood people. They both grew up and he got more fame in the last year than he ever thought he’d have. He parties and his blatant indulgence with them can’t be dismissed forever. it’s better that they do give it up. I’m sure he wants to be with these women openly. They had some financial difficulties last year or the year before, back taxes $492,000. That being said, in California without a pre-nup, she would get 50% of assets which may not be that much by Hollywood standards.

    remember da truth Says:

    Ugonna #21 is right, whether you self-righteous whiners want to admit it or not. There is no such thing as a homewrecker, and certainly one performance on stage that was merely mimicking the video he did is not going to ruin a solid marriage.
    They were kids when married and have been together longer than most marriages. It’s not the fame that drove them apart — it’s growing up and apart. No doubt he was the same — as was she — before Blurred Lines. Robin Thicke has been a big star outside of the U.S. for many years. Just because paps now caught him grabbing other women doesn’t mean he wasn’t doing it all along.
    And no one knows what she’s been up to, either. They have been on and off plenty, and it’s seldom one-sided.

  55. 55
    truth Says:


    I neved said these things don’t happen in Hollywood, BUT that the VMA performance with Miley had NOTHING to do with the break up. There most definitely is NOTHING going on with Robin & Miley. Robin & olther women yes! But lets stop the BS & stop blaming Miley for EVERYTHING. What will this girl be blamed for next? famine, war, global warming?

    It appears that the blame for this brake up is Robin himself!

    Shilah Says:

    I know divorce or separation can be quite painful but I feel relieved for her after what she had gone through. She’s good looking and deserves much better. He has humiliated her openly and discreetly and cheated on her left, right, center, up and down. He’s a douchebag and those women who were more than happy to mess around with him knowing very well he has a wife at home are a complete garbage. I believed there’ll be a fine dude, decent, caring and a true gentleman who’ll come along the way for her if not sooner but later.

    This almost A list celebrity/singer has spent the entirety of his marriage cheating on his B list mostly movie actress wife so it really isn’t surprising she is cheating on him now. What is surprising is the semi-public sucking face she did off in a corner of a screening of her most recent movie.

    if he really couldn’t see how gorgeous paula is compared to the trash that has claimed to have hooked up with him, then something is very wrong with him and his d***. she deserves much better after staying by his side this long, she deserves a very handsome and loyal man, i would go absolutely insane if i was in her shoes every night he was out performing at a club, and then their son in the picture doesn’t make this situation any better. to even divorce while you have a young child that has no idea whats going on is not a healthy scenario, especially when he becomes old enough to go on the computer to see what his dad was really about is going to take a toll on him. anyways paula is going to be the one with a bigger career than robin, robin is a one hit wonder while paula will continue on playing the love interest to the most handsome men in hollywood, her career is just beginning and is on the rise while robin can’t get past his one hit song that miley outshined him in, how pathetic, his loss really, he got the best of himself just because of one hit song, his career was b-list before blurred lines and this will literally be the pinacle and the end of his career, that one song that ruined his marriage.

    No way is Miley ANY part of this. & if you had seen the Miley MTV special where they went behind the scenes to the rehearsal for VMA you would have seen that He was fully aware & part of the performance they were going to do at VMA. Robin is plain & simple a scumbag cheater & his wife had enough of seeing his cheating played out in the public – sure she saw the pictures with other woman & him all over them.

    People are always looking for a way to spew their hatred for Miley. But if you want to blame it on Miley go ahead & whlie you are at it why not blame her for global warming & the massive winter storms – so idiotic of people. Miley does not deserve the hatred – if you don’t like her, don’t watch, son’t buy, etc.but GROW UP!

    Who Cares Says:

    Honestly, I don’t think Miley has the bad taste to go out with him. Robin Thicke looks so sleazy and sweaty always. The hairdo…the hip shaking…the sunglasses…it’s like your dad embarrassing himself by trying to acting ‘young’.
