Robin Thicke and Paula Patton may have had their problems – just google “Robin Thicke cheating” – but it’s safe to say that everyone was shocked when the news hit yesterday that the couple, who had been married since 2005, were calling it quits on their marriage. Apparently, Thicke was just as shocked as the rest of us about his wife’s decision to file for separation.
According to TMZ, Thicke was supposed to perform in Atlanta last Friday, but on that same day Patton told Thick that she wanted a divorce. Thicke immediately cancelled his show, saying he had throat problems and allegedly flew to Canada to plead with Patton to stay with him.
During the heated conversation, both Patton and Thicke admitted that they had been struggling to keep their marriage afloat and that they’d been arguing more than ever.
The source claims that after some time, Thicke realized that he couldn’t sway Patton to stay with him and he reluctantly agreed to the separation.
The next day, Thicke cancelled his Orlando show and decided to spend the day with their son, Julian at Disneyland.
It’s unclear how real the story is, but Thick did indeed cancel his shows this weekend and was photographed with his son at Disneyland even after he complained of throat problems.
In any case, it’s a sad situation for their whole family and we hope the pair can really remain friends, if only for the sake of their son.
