Paula Patton and Robin Thicke have split up after 9 years of marriage. The two issed a statement announcing their separation to People.com.
"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,"
Thicke was involved in a couple of controversial moments with other females on the night of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
The first involved his performance with Miley Cyrus at the show, where she twerked on him and used a foam finger to touch his private parts.
Then at a VMA after party he snapped a photo with a blonde women. In it his hand can be seen grabbing her butt.
Who knows if those incidents played a factor into the couple's split, but I'm sure they didn't help.
**UPDATE** February 27
Paula Patton initially tried to hide her embarrassment after her husband's 2013 MTV Video Music Award performance with Miley Cyrus.
The actress gave a couple of interviews saying she wasn't surprised at what she saw, and that Robin and Miley had practiced their routine days in advance of the August 25, 2013 show
"Honestly, they rehearsed for three days beforehand, and I don't know how not to dance with someone having their booty in your...all my friends do it like that," Paula said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, in September 2013. "And I don't really know what the big deal is."
Turns out it was a really big deal. According to TMZ, Miley improvised the raunchy part of the routine and Robin just went with the flow.
Paula felt "utterly disrespected" watching Robin let Miley grind on his crotch in front of a national television audience.
Things got worse when the photo of Robin grabbing a female fan's butt at the after party surfaced. The couple argued constantly after the incidents until Paula finally decided to end their marriage.
