After a 9 month long separation, the couple is calling it quits due to “irreconcilable differences”.
Anyone who has kept up with the couple knows the “Blurred Lines” singer was accused of cheating on the American actress. Robin Thicke has very publicly tried to win Paula back by creating an entire album about his love for her. He has even admitted to E! News that his behavior is the ultimate reason behind their separation, “We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore for a while. There’s a hundred different reasons, there isn’t just one. There’s a long list… I changed, and I got a little too selfish, a little too greedy and little too full of myself”. However, his attempts to regain Patton’s heart have been a complete bust. Thicke too often contradicts his pleads to win Paula back by publicly admitting he is just sort of “winging it”, rather than putting a lot of thought and effort into fixing things. He admitted this to Good Morning America back in July, “I actually have no idea what I’m doing…. I’m just kinda flying by the seat of my pants on this one”.
Additionally, the two also have a 4- year- old son, Julian and will both have joint custody.
As a young adult who grew up with a single mother, I am very proud of Paula Patton’s decision to file for divorce. If Thicke no longer treats her with the same love, respect, and honesty that their relationship was founded upon then she is making the right choice to move on from it. It takes an extremely brave woman to walk away from the love, fame, and fortune that Thicke provided her with. Of course, we hope that they are able to end on good terms and move on to better things!
Robin Thicke’s love life may not be doing so hot at the moment, his music sure is! His single “Blurred Lines”, featuring T.I. and Pharrell, continues to top the charts. Listen to the smash hit now and SING ALONG!
