Paula Patton Files for Divorce From Robin Thicke
Keeping in line with what's been a terrible year for Robin Thicke, his wife Paula Patton has finally filed for divorce.
After separating in February, Patton cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, according to TMZ. Thicke reportedly gave up on fixing the marriage in July and was waiting for his wife of nine years to file the papers.
This means Thicke has nothing to show for the massive publicity hit he took during the spring. The 38-year-old launched a public campaign for Patton's love through a series of in-concert apologies and the release of his 'Paula' album. Not only was Thicke lambasted by critics and fans for what many considered to be public harassment, he also had a very sharp sales decrease from last year's 'Blurred Lines' LP. 'Paula' infamously sold 550 copies in the U.K., and 158 in Australia in its debut week.
Perhaps the only good news to come from this is that there may not be any legal drama during the court proceedings. Patton is seeking joint custody of their 4-year-old son, Julian.
Unfortunately, this isn't the only legal matters Thicke is dealing with. The Marvin Gaye estate lawsuit regarding 'Blurred Lines' is still hanging over him.
