One thing about being on top of the world, darlings, is you have a long way to fall. Case in point, Robin Thicke. It seems like only yesterday he was having the time of his life. Hot wife: check! Song of the summer: check! Most talked-about VMA performance: check! A little mischievous behavior on the side? Well, he did manage to get away with this! That is until now. I hear that his wife of eight years, Paula Patton, is saying buh-bye, and the breaking point of their marriage troubles, according to a tattletale, was that pesky twerking performance with the one and only Miley Cyrus.
“The Miley Cyrus fiasco was a big test of their relationship,” an inside source revealed to Us Weekly. “He asked [Paula] to help him out as a friend and a wife, and defend him and the performance. He begged her to speak out for him and be there for him.”
“She agreed to be the good wife after he begged and pleaded,” the insider continued. “Then he asked her to stick with him through awards season, and she agreed. She attended the Grammys with him as a favor.”
But now that his appearances have dwindled and no one cares about his song anymore (#sorrynotsorry), she’s finally showing him the door.
Although as much as I’d like to put the blame on Miz Cyrus, sadly I don’t think we can. I hear that their troubles stem from even before the infamous performance. “Their marriage was unraveling a long time,” the insider tells Us. “It is not a shock to Robin or Paula, and it is something they have discussed for a long time.”
