According to Access Hollywood Pauls’s rep released a statement on behalf of the couple which said “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time”.

The couple who first met when Thicke was only 14 have sustained a long lasting friendship which led to them marrying in June of 2005. Fans and some media outlets began to question the state of their marriage with the backlash and controversial performance at the MTV video Music Awards with Miley Cyrus.

Professionally 2013 was a great year for Thicke who received two Grammy nominations for his song “Blurred Lines” but the song has come with its share of backlash. Students at Boston University started a petition earlier this month to cancel the upcoming March 4 spring concert at the Agganis Arena which features Thicke according to Boston magazine.

Members of the group Humanist at Boston University are not happy with the lyrics in Thicke’s song Blurred Lines and according to Boston magazine group members said “Having Thicke perform is a political statement that is out of touch with the realities of sexual violence and Boston University’s own history.

Thus, we suggest that Robin Thicke’s performance be cancelled, “Thicke’s hit song, ‘Blurred Lines,’ celebrates having sex with women against their will. Lyrics such as, ‘I know you want it,’ explicitly use non-consensual language. And while watching the extremely explicit video, the insinuations grow from subtle to explicit to obnoxious,” the group said.

Thicke and Patton have one son together, Julian Fuego, who was born April 2010.
