When Paula Patton excused the infamous Video Music Awards twerking incident featuring Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke, fans figured that is was only a matter of time before her relationship with the Blurred Lines singer ended. Although she liked to think of herself as open-minded, Instagram photos featuring Robin’s hand on another woman’s butt seemed to suggest that all was not well in paradise.
Finally, six months after the VMA debacle, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have decided to move on to greener pastures. The two announced in a statement that they were parting ways — and that they had arrived at that decision on a mutual basis. Not long after the shocking announcement, Robin was seen traipsing about New York City without his wedding ring.
Although Robin and Paula claim to have made the decision to split together, rumors suggest that Robin is more shaken up by the separation than Paula. The concerts he performed following the breakup were far more emotional than fans expected, with the singer advising audience members to hold on tight to those they love.
Given their long, long relationship history, there just might be hope for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton. Perhaps a brief split will be enough to remind the two just how important they are in each other’s lives. The latest gossip seems to indicate that Paula is open to reconciliation, although it could take Robin a long time to earn back her trust. Fans are certainly rooting for the famous couple to get back together and, as such, will be devastated if they decide to make the split official through divorce.
