Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have separated, People reports. Patton released a statement to the magazine saying,”We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
Patton, 38, and Thicke, 36, met as teenagers and were married in 2005. The couple have faced rumors of infidelity, but attended the Grammy Awards last month and still looked happy together.
Thicke is due to perform at Boston University on March 4th, but many students are calling on officials to cancel the “Blurred Lines” singer’s appearance. A petition has been circulating, which states “Having Thicke perform is a political statement that is out of touch with the realities of sexual violence and Boston University’s own history. Thus, we suggest that Robin Thicke’s performance be cancelled.”
Patton and Thicke have one child together, three-year old son Julian Fuego Thicke.
