Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are separating
After months of whispers that Robin Thicke has been unfaithful to his wife Paula Patton, today the celebrity duo dropped the bombshell that they are splitting up after two decades together.
“We will always love each other and be best friends,” the singer and his actress wife tell US Weekly in a statement. “However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”Thicke, 36, and Patton, 37 are parents to son Julian, 3, and have been married since 2005.
Thicke sky-rocketed to fame last year with his hit “Blurred Lines,” but once in the public eye, rumors of his cheating ways began to hound the singer — all of which he denied. “Seventy-five percent of my songs are about how much I love my wife and how much I need her. We’ve been married for eight years, and together since we were 16. We’re very lucky to have the greatest friendship; we’re John and Yoko — whatever that is — that’s who she is to me,” he told Vanity Fair in October.
The rumors started after this picture made the rounds, showing Thicke very thoroughly groping a female fan’s butt after his infamous VMA’s performance.
That fan has since spoken out — and it seems like things got even busier than a little butt squeeze. Lana Scolaro, 20, revealed to Life & Style that not only did she hook up with Thicke that night, but she did it with Patton just a few feet away. “I don’t think he cared what she thought,” she says. “I was with him the whole night!”
