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 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.

  • No surpise here.

    How could any woman be okay with his topless ho videos? He’s probably with Emilie, the brunette. She magically broke up with her BF a couple of weeks back.

    He’s a fine looking man but no different or better than the rest.

  • remember da truth

    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.

  • truth


    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

    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.

    Robin Thicke/Paula Patton

  • 1hitWonder

    So funny they are divorcing after she gave in to cheating herself. Fed up with his infidelity? He dished it out but he couldn’t take it.

    34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For whoever wants to save their life[b] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. 36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? 37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”

    Wow, what A SHOCKER. He met his Wife at the AMAZING place at and NOW THEY ARE HAPPILY MARRIED!

  • Anonymous

    I know nothing about Paula Patton, but she’s pretty and Robin Thicke just comes across as trashy with his media image.

  • aquarius64

    @truth: You can’t say with absolute certainty that Miley didn’t not play a role. I’m saying God help them if it’s true and proven, just like Kristen and Rupert.

  • Diedre

    I would have told him to hit the bricks after he let Miley rub all up against his junk.
    He just strikes me as a massive douche.

  • Sickofthatstupidsong!

    Good for her! Robin Thicke seems to have let fame get to his head and he seems very sleazy and gross. It’s not just the womanizing either, it’s the whole entire package. The sunglasses all the time…..gross! Pinky ring……gross! That striped suit thing he wore….gross! Hearing that song constantly on the radio…..gross!!!

  • Tyla

    Who didn’t see this coming? I’m surprised it took this long!! He’s a serial cheater douche bag.

  • BVT

    Wow, didn’t see this coming. *rolls eyes* How she made it last this long with a creep of a slimeball like him is a miracle. Getting a kiss from your husband every night with the smell of other women’s p-u-ss-ies on his breath must mean she’s a glutton for punishment.

  • abdulla

    her boobs looks cartoonish.

  • missy

    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.

    Paula Patton is a beautiful woman. She could do soooo much better! Robin Thicke is a joke. Twerking with Miley Cyrus might have gotten him some attention, but it was mostly negative attention. Paula doesn’t need the baggage of that egomaniacal loser.

  • xXx

    surprising ? no

  • 2ndchances

    They should stay together for the sake of their son.

  • Whatever

    Not surprised by this at all. One hit song for him and he thinks he’s the sh/it. She’s better off without him.

  • truth


    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

    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’.

  • GFW

    Alan is now ‘famous’ for disrespecting his wife.
    Alan does not deserve her which was her decision same as taking him on.
    Now he will get lost in the sea of plenty.
    She will find someone more suitable.
    She will.

  • Dee

    No doubt he is and has been overcompensating: 1st of all he doesn’t even walk like he’s packing. I am so sickened by this guy that when his dad is on some radio commercial ( in the car), I have to change the Channel. Wasn’t Paula in a MI withe Cruise? When I 1st realized that, I couldn’t believe she was with that creep. Good for her!

    Some day he will really understand the meaning of the word regret. Right now its just a game. I hope she finds someone, falls madly in love, and he treats her with the respect she deserves. Love the song but it said a lot about him. The video said more, the Miley thing… he is kinda sleezy.
