At first glance, Thicke and his wife Paula Patton seemed like the perfect Hollywood pair. After all, the two met when Patton was just 14 and the two have been married since 2005 which is significant period for celebrity unions.
However, a slew of recent cheating rumors surrounded the couple since Thicke’s infamously VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus, which some called disrespectful to Patton.
Thicke and his soon-to-be-ex wife announced their decision to split on Monday, revealing to reporters that it was mutual.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Patton said in an exclusive statement.
However, TMZ claims that it was Patton who decided to put end to their nine-year marriage — and when she told the news Thicke on Friday, the singer canceled his show at the last minute and flew to Vancouver, where Patton is shooting a movie, in a “desperate” attempt to change her mind.
Some insiders claim that the reason for Paula’s decision is her husband behaviour. Thus, after scandalous VMAs show Thicke’s fan uploaded to her Instagram page a picture of herself with the popular singer where his hand lays on her butt. It can be clearly noticed due to the reflection in the mirror.
“I knew his hand was on my butt. I posted it on Instagram and didn’t notice the reflection. But someone noticed it and commented. I was just like, ‘Oh, I’ll Instagram this photo with Robin Thicke, like everybody else,’” she told reporters.
“I didn’t think it would cause this much drama. I didn’t know it would be all over everything like this,” the girl added.
However, the drama blew up after one of Twitter users sent the provocating image to Robin’s wife with the message: ‘Look at the reflection girl.’
Lana claims that she is a ‘socialite’ and reveals this isn’t the first time she’s met the R&B star. “We have mutual friends in common. I actually met him a week before the after party,” she said.
Describing the photo, she added: “I was actually going over to the DJ booth and he followed me. His security guard took the photo and said, ‘you guys make a cute couple’.”
Wich is more, on MTV VMAs Thicke also surprised his couple, demonstrating provocative dance with Miley.
Scantily dressed in a furry teddy bear leotard that showed off her long legs and toned arms, Miley Cyrus emerged on the stage from a large bear and sang her hit “We Can’t Stop” as a chorus line of bears danced in the background.
After she was joined by Robin Thicke sang “Blurred Lines” together , Miley embraced her scandalous side and stripped off her bear-emblazoned leotard and wore nude PVC hot pants and boob tube which was more revealing than anyone could have ever expected, to be quite honest.
Thicke, meanwhile, clad in a black-and-white-striped suit, tried to carry on with the performance as Cyrus twerked around him and used a foam finger to gesture lewdly around the stage.
“Miley better go get a pregnancy test after doing all that grinding,” joked comedian Kevin Hart after their performance.
