Paula Patton Officially Files for Divorce From Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke, Paula PattonAs if there was any doubt that Robin Thicke and Paula Patton were never, ever getting back together, TMZ reports she filed for divorce from the "Blurred Lines" singer last week.

The date of separation on the listed on the petition is February 21, just days before the couple made a joint statement announcing their split. "We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," they said at the time.


In the eight months that have passed since then, Thicke has pretty much made a fool out of himself trying to win her back with grandiose gestures that probably had little to do with fixing whatever problems they had in their marriage.

You know, because the way to win your estranged wife back isn't to humbly beg her forgiveness and actually change your ways, it's to produce an entire publicity-seeking album dedicated to how much you'll never let her go. Or something.

Anyway, Patton listed "irreconcilable difference" as grounds on the document that was filed in Los Angeles. She's asking for joint custody of their 4-year-old son Julian.

It's incredibly sad that this couple, who have been together since they were teenagers, couldn't make it work. But it's a good example of how no one really knows what goes on in a marriage, and when it's time to move on -- it's time to move on. 

Are you surprised it took Paula Patton this long to file for divorce from Robin Thicke?
