Paula Patton has filed for divorce from Robin Thicke. The couple, who were high school sweethearts, had been married for eight years. TMZ reports that court papers cite "irreconcible differences" as the reason. Patton has asked for joint custody of their four-year-old son.
Patton and Thicke announced their separation in February. "We will always love each other and be best friends," the couple told People. "However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."
The "Blurred Lines" singer spent the summer trying to win back his wife, even going as far as naming an album after her, releasing a very personal video that shared their text messages, and dedicating songs to her during his concerts. Given today's news, it would seem this very public campaign was unsuccessful.
The couple has yet to release an official statement on the divorce. However, a source told Us Weekly that it had "been a long time coming" and "their marriage was unraveling for a long time." (Us Weekly)
