Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have officially called it quits! The high school sweethearts announced their decision to separate 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,” the singer and the actress told People .
Robin and Paula first met when Robin was 14, and were together off and on throughout the years. They were married in 2005 and welcomed a son, Julian Fuego, in April 2010.
“Some of our individual goals still haven’t been realized,” Robin said in an interview with USA TODAY in July of his relationship with Paula. “But we have a healthy child. We’re madly, crazily in love. That’s where I was at, and I wanted to celebrate it. Life is pretty good, you know?”
Maybe those “individual goals” are what split up their marriage? We can only speculate. I did love them together, though! I thought that they would be one of the celebrity couples to make it, especially since they’ve been together for so long. It’s good to see though, that they are still on good terms, and I’m sure that they will co-parent well for the sake of their son.
