Robin Thicke and his wife, Paula Patton, have announced that they are separating after almost nine years of marriage. The two met when they were teenagers and have been married since 2005 and have a 4-year-old son, Julian.
People reports that the two have released a joint statement on Monday. “We will always love each other and be best friends,” the couple said. “However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
Back in September, a lot of rumors about the Blurred Lines singer and other women were going around the Internet. There was a photograph of him and another women getting close and a socialite claimed she kissed him after meeting him at a VMAs after-party. Just last month he was also photographed “dirty dancing” with another woman in Paris, notes NY Daily News.
After his controversial VMA performance with Miley Cyrus, the couple had a lot to talk about. They spent the past year talking about their relationship, at least publicly. In July, Thicke told USA Today that, “Some of our individual goals still haven’t been realized. But we have a healthy child. We’re madly, crazily in love. That’s where I was at, and I wanted to celebrate it. Life is pretty good, you know?”
Then, in an interview with Star Magazine in September, he spoke about his family and marriage. “I knew she was special the night I met her. I was only 14, but she was already the most special girl,” he said. He then went on to explain how you fall in love even more as your relationship progresses, and it happens in many deeper ways. “You realize that you need each other and you can’t live without each other.”
Patton also was interviewed by Your Tango in September and seemed just as happy and in love. She noted at the time that their love was "mutual."
