Well, at least someone is sympathetic! No one can be sure what goes on behind closed doors, but we’re certain this split is extremely difficult for both Paula and Robin, who have been together since he was 14. So we think now is not the time to play the blame game!
Paula Patton & Robin Thicke Separate After 9 Years Of Marriage
Paula and Robin tied the knot in 2005 and the couple’s son, Julian Fuego Thicke, was born in April, 2010. The last time the couple were spotted together in public was on Jan. 27 at the Grammy Awards.
Over the past year, there have been many rumors that there was trouble in Robin and Paula’s marriage. After the release of Robin’s “Blurred Lines” music video that was filled with nude women, people began to speculate that his wife might not be happy. His racy performance at the MTV VMAs, during which Miley Cyrus twerked and then grinded her butt against his crotch, only added fuel to the fire.
Some of Robin’s scandals even took place off-stage. On the night of the Grammys, he was photographed grabbing another woman’s butt at an after-party. Most recently, Robin was out in Paris in January 18 and in pics looked very close to kissing another woman. Paula, 38, and Robin, 36, announced their split on Feb. 24, telling People in a mutual statement: “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
