Singer Robin Thicke, Actress Paula Patton to Divorce

Audiences watching Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke twerking their way through last year’s VMAs wondered what Thicke’s wife thought of the act.

The Blurred Lines sensation brushed off such talk at the time. It’s just show business, he assured fans, and his marriage to actress Paula Patton remained strong.

Sadly, the apparently strong bond he had with his wife isn’t what it used to be. The couple announced it will split after eight years of marriage.

We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” theBlurred Lines singer and the Baggage Claim actress told People on Monday.

Thicke also caused headlines shortly after the VMAs when he was caught groping a woman’s posterior, an image immortalized on the Instagram social media site.
