Just when you start believing in Hollywood unions, apparent open marriages begin to crumble too. It seems that after almost 10 years of marriage and being together since they were teenagers, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have decided to separate.
According to PEOPLE, the couple sent them a statement today where they said that they mutually decided to move on from one another.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
The couple are parents to 3-year-old Julian Fuego Thicke. While they have always seemed like the perfect couple (remember when she starred in his video for “Lost Without You”?), with last year’s success of Thicke’s song ‘Blurred Lines’ came a lot more attention on the pair and their relationship, as well as a lot more attention from women for Thicke. Not only was he seen at one point with his hand on the backside of a young woman after the VMAs last summer, but just last month he was seen in Paris with a woman who seemed to be all over him. However, the couple hasn’t provided a reason for why they are parting ways.
Whatever the reasoning, this is pretty sad, especially since the two have a son together. We’re hoping they just need a break for now and will be able to work things out soon.
