Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are calling it quits

NEW YORK (AP) - Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are calling it quits.

A representative for the actress confirmed Monday that she and the singer are ending their nine-year marriage.

"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," the entertainers said in a joint statement.

Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, met when they were teenagers. They had a son, Julian Fuego Thicke, in 2010.

Robin Thicke had a breakthrough last year with the international hit "Blurred Lines," which was nominated for several Grammy Awards. Patton has appeared in the films "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," ''Idlewild," and "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."

Patton also appeared in Thicke's music videos, including "Lost Without U" and "Love After War." She was the inspiration behind most of his music, and she appeared on the cover of his 2003 debut, "A Beautiful World."

Their separation was first reported on People magazine's website.

I'm very sad about this news. I always thought they made a beautiful couple, seemed very much in love. I think a pivotal time in both of their careers, however grand it be, can also test the strength of that love by one or both parties. Robin Thicke, you've just had a beautiful baby boy, with this beautiful woman, you're a family. Find your way back to your wife, defy the odds.

I don't have any negative thing to say , just couples need to put God and keep God in their lives. I'm praying for this Family and other couples who are in trouble. What therefore God has put together, let no man put asunder.

This is why you don't parade what a perfect and loving marriage you supposedly have to the nausea of the public. You look like total buffoons when you break up.

I'm just dying laughing at the "chicken butt" part. But you're so right, Miley is pure trash and Paula's got class.

What's even more sad is your comment. As if you know anything about these people but are probably someone who sits at home and acts like they're friends with the stars... MENTAL ILLNESS.
