When it comes to love you definitely take your chances. It is always thrilling to see two people fall head over heels in love, but just as disheartening when that loves comes to an end. This is the gut wrenching feeling you get when you have to announce the end of a beautiful couple. Yep, actress Paula Patton and singer Robin Thicke are calling it quits–well at least Paula did. Today she filed for divorce from her husband of nine years citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for their permanent split. Additionally, she has asked for joint legal and physical custody of their son, Julian.
The split is rumored to “harmonious,” which curiously sounds like Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks’ “amicable” split. Well let us just hope things are as good as they can be considering this bad news. Needless to say, no one is surprised to see this coming. Everyone has their limits and it seems Paula has reached hers. So has the public, Robin’s latest album, “Paula,” was a flop. this does not sound good for his career considering that less than two years ago his hit single, “Blurred Lines,” broke records for the most played single in the nation. Still, one has to wonder what was the final straw with Paula. Was it his twerk session with Miley at the VMAs or him groping groupies? Who knows…Nevertheless, we wish both stars the best. Robin sang “…he’s gotta get her back…” For now it seems like he will not. Then again stranger things have happened. If they are truly meant to be it will work itself out. Chin up Patton-Thicke Clan, chin up!
