'Blurred Lines' star Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton have announced that their 9 year long marriage has reached an end. The couple has been together since their teens and share a son, 4 year old Julian.

Twerking with Miley Cyrus aside, we knew something was about to happen between the two since Robin was inadvertently caught last year by a mirror's reflection groping a fan's behind in a picture he sent to his wife.

After the sleazy incident the couple put up an united front but the public 'family man' alter ego the misogynist singer had worked so hard on was inevitably compromised.

36 year old Robin Thicke and actress wife 38 year old Patton, announcing their split, declared to the press in a joint statement: "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time", which sounds pretty reasonable but it might just happen not to be the truth.

In fact, it was reported that the reason behind Thicke's recent Atlanta gig cancellation wasn't a sore throat as claimed by the singer, but a last-minute dash to Canada to beg for a reconciliation with soon to be ex-wife Paula, who is currently filming a movie in Vancouver. An attempt that had failed miserably, as confirmed by the separation announcement.
