People confirms that Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are getting divorced
. The couple has been together since high school and has been married for nine years. They have one son together, Julian Fuego.
The couple issued this statement: "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."
The impending divorce is hardly a surprise to anyone who has been following Robin Thicke's antics over the past couple of years. The multiple photos of Thicke with women who were not his wife, the "Blurred Lines" video and the Miley Cyrus twerking extravaganza must have finally taken a toll on his marriage. It's a shame for their little boy, but Paula deserves better.
