After nine years of a marriage, celebrity power couple Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are separating.
“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 on Monday in an exclusive statement.
The couple first met in high school when they were both still teenagers, and have been married since 2005.
They welcomed their son Julian Fuego in April 2010.
In an August 2013 interview with theGrio, Patton opened up about having “moments of jealousy” during her marriage with Thicke.
“We’ve dreamt the same dream together, him a singer, and me an actress, since we were kids,” Patton said. “So we know that it’s part of the deal. But it would be a lie to say that we both don’t have our moments of jealousy, and I’m honestly scared of the day that he’s not a little jealous. It wouldn’t be normal for someone to see the person they love kissing someone else.”
There is no word on whether or not Patton and Thicke will move forward with an official divorce.0
