The “Blurred Lines” maestro is going solo.
Sad but true: Robin Thicke and his actress-wife Paula Patton are going their separate ways after eight years of marriage, telling People magazine today that although they “will always love each other and be best friends,” this is the way the cookie is crumbling right now.
No word on whether any party has filed for divorce yet. The high school sweethearts (if memory serves) were married eight years ago.
Now, to ask the obvious: Was it the twerking that broke the relationship? You know somebody with more readers than me is gonna ask the question, make the Miley suggestion.
Anyway, Thicke and Patton are parents to 3-year-old Julian Fuego.
So wish ’em all the best. Especially because if he gets to hang on to half the inspiration that she provided during their time together, he will continue to make nice music (and I’m talking, of course, about the kind of melodies he dropped on us before his smash hit of the summer that was…).
Update: Boy, did I call it or what?
