"Blurred Lines" singer Thicke and his beautiful actress wife Paula Patton have been together since they were teenagers. Thicke, now 36, met Patton, now 38, when he was only 14 years old and she was 16. They were at a hip-hop club on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. When they dance, Thicke sang Stevie Wonder's "Jungle Fever" to the woman he would later marry.
They were married on June 11, 2005, and have a son, Julian Fuego Thicke, born April 6, 2010. Thicke and Patton announced their split on Feb. 24, 2014, after 8 years of marriage.
The couple denied rumors that their marriage was on the rocks a year ago. Now the news is out that they have decided to go their separate ways. They said in a joint statement:
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
No reason for the split has been revealed to the public. They both have always spoken highly of each other. The singer once said about the actress, “I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way.”
