Last year Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s marriage became a hot topic when a young woman put the R&B singer on blast for groping her despite being a married man.
The couple laughed off the controversy and Robin even hinted in an interview that they had an open marriage that permitted him to enjoy other women.
But we’re guessing none of that was really successful because a rep for the couple just announced they are splitting up. PEOPLE reports:
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are ending their longtime marriage.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the couple tell PEOPLE on Monday in an exclusive statement.
Paula and Robin married in 2005 and started dating when they were just 14. They have one son together.
Can’t say im surprised but still sad to see this post
I’m always sad to hear of any marriage ending but I can’t say I’m surprised.
I’m not surprised!!!! I don’t care what these men say. No woman likes sharing her man!!!! Eventually we will smarten up and leave you!!!!
I really hate this for them I wish them best. I hope they keep it cordial for their adorable son.
Honestly it was just a matter of time. Robin was way too flirty and careless. I’m sure Paula got tired of it.
No one should be surprised. No one.
And yet another marriage bites the dust. So sad. I wish them both the best and I hope their divorce doesn’t get nasty like all the others seem to.
With all the rumors of cheating and drug use, I am not shocked at all.
Y’all I think it’s more than just cheating. To tell the truth she got used to that. I heard Paula was back to using again. And she has been acting high and drunk in public quite a bit for the last several months. I won’t be surprised if she announces she’s going to rehab soon.
Well he never acted like he was married to begin with.
People grow apart.
That doesn’t excuse “til death do us part” though…
This is sad.
They have been together forever too. Man.
Ole boy was busted kissing another woman about a month ago in the club. Paula needs to walk away. He doesn’t respect their marriage.
I always side eye the couples that go out their way to look happy to everyone else. Those are usually the ones hanging by a thread.
Will he be lost without her?
Hollywood sure can mess up a marriage. It was all good when Robin was unknown and trying to get some shine. And now that he’s on, these groupies been throwing it at him like crazy. And he’s been enjoying it way too much. As for Paula, her acting career is taking off but she’s been acting like she’s too high to enjoy it. They are both a mess and it’s just sad to see.
Come here Paula baby, I’ll make you forget about that jerk in no time…
Open marriages do not work!
Are there any strong marriages in Hollywood ? They were such a beautiful couple. I really hope they reconcile. The good should always outweigh the bad.
I hope they work it out.
