We’re sad to report that longtime couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are separating.
Thicke and Patton, who have been married since 2005, revealed the unfortunate news in an exclusive interview with People today (February 24), stating, “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
The singer (36) and actress (38), who have famously been friends since their high school days, have one son together, 3-year-old Julian Fuego.
While rumors of infidelity have swirled around the two in more recent years, Thicke explained during an interview with Oprah Winfrey last fall that he and Paula had a special bond, even calling her his “muse.”
“We’re no different than any couple out there,” Thicke said at the time. “We have our fights…we have our problems, but somehow there is this ‘Big Bang Theory’ that pulls us close to each other and we are madly in love.”
Between their adorable son and long relationship, we hope that these two can remain close during what will likely be a bumpy road in the months ahead.
