On February 24, 2014 the entertainment world was shocked by Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s announcement of their separation. There were some people saying it was only a matter of time, while some were totally taken by surprise. So I guess everybody wants to know WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?? Well before I give you the answer to that question, let me give a brief history on this couple.
Paula and Robin in 2004
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton met back in 1991 when they were in high school. The two were married on June 11, 2005. Paula is a successful hollywood actress and Robin is an R&B singer signed to Pharrell Williams’s record label Neptunes. His single “Blurred Lines” was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks. The couple has a 3 year old son named Julian.
Okay so y’all are probably saying “Awww, they’ve been together a long time! Whatever problems they’re having can be fixed.” Well, If only it were that simple. There is one person in this union who decided to sign up for extracurricular activities. Who is the person???
In August 2013, The MTV Video Music Awards premiered. It was full of special guests and great musical performances, but also came with the most talked about shocker of the night…MILEY CYRUS TWERKIN’ ON ROBIN THICKE!!!!!!!!!
GIRL……PUT YOUR TONGUE BACK IN YA MOUTH!!!!!
A HOT MESS!!!!!!!
According to close friends, Paula was not pleased by this performance. They say that she was very embarrassed and that Robin took things too far with Miley. Despite being upset Paula pretended it wasn’t a big deal and sort of “laughed” it off. This would be one of the first blows to their marriage. Now on to the incident!!!!!
After the MTV Video Music Awards Robin attended an after party where he ran into NYC socialite Lana Scolaro, and the two began hanging out. Later that night they took a photo together that will probably go down in history as being one of the biggest scandals in 2013. Here is the infamous photo….
ROBIN KNOW HE BOLD AIN’T HE???? LADIES & GENTLEMEN, YES, ROBIN IS GRABBING THAT GIRL’S BOOTY!!!!! I GUESS THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS WHERE YOU FORGOT YOU HAD A WIFE HUH ROBIN?! SMH. He claims that this was purely an accident, that it was real late, and that he was extremely tired. And what does Ms. Lana have to say for herself???? Well she said that when the picture was being taken she knew that Robin put his hand in the “wrong place”. DO Y’ALL SMELL THAT??? I SMELL A HEAUX!!!!!!
So what did Paula have to say about this? Well in front of the media she claimed she didn’t have an issue with the situation. But once again, close friends of theirs said she was very irate and told Robin to get his act together. You would think he would listen to his wife and show her some respect; however, a few months later he had yet another reckless moment.
In January 2014 Robin was performing at a nightclub in Paris, France and he was photographed dancing with a woman in the club. Some said they were a little too close, and then this picture surfaced…
OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!! TRIFLIN’!!!!!!!!
Now Robin is clearly creepin’ around! And from the looks of it he doesn’t give a damn!!!!! I mean you just don’t accidentally kiss someone, especially in a passionate way. Of course Ms. Paula heard what happened and became extremely angry when she saw the picture. This situation right here was said to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Close sources said that Robin and Paula began making public appearances separately.
The last time Robin and Paula were spotted together was at the 2014 Grammys, about a week after the kissing picture surfaced. Shortly after, the couple publicly announced that they were separating. Since the announcement Robin has been trying to win Paula back. He even went as far as to sing “Let’s Stay Together” by R&B soul singer Al Green at a concert he was performing.
Okay here’s my opinion of the whole situation…Robin, you are stupid as hell!! It is clear that the success of your #1 hit record has gone to your head!!! This man had a beautiful successful woman in his corner for 20 plus years (remember they’ve been together since high school) and he screwed it up! Will she ever forgive him? Who knows, maybe one day, but for right now Ms. Paula…..ENJOY THE SINGLE LIFE!!!!
