Paula Patton has officially filed for divorce from her husband Robin Thicke.
Robin Thicke’s increasingly desperate attempts to win back his wife, Paula Patton, have come to naught: Patton filed for divorce today.
She filed the papers in Los Angeles, and asked for joint custody of their son, Julian, 4.
“irreconcilable differences” as the reason, but the divorce so far is conflict-free.
Thicke and Patton announced their separation in February, 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 said in a statement.
Since then, Thicke has been rather public about his hopes to win Patton back, dedicating songs to her in concerts, naming an album after her, and sending her texts openly pining for her.
It didn’t work.
So what happened? Their relationship started to go downhill last year just at the point of Thicke’s greatest success with Blurred Lines, the provocative video for the summer hit, and in the wake of his controversial performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2013.
