After a promising start to 2014 things have taken a little bit of a turn for the worse, as we are starting to see a number of high-profile relationships coming to an end, with the latest being that of Paula Patton and Robin Thicke. The couple announced their separation in a joint statement earlier this week and have stated that they will still remain good friends.
It is now being reported that, while he has now accepted the decision, Robin Thicke fought his hardest to save the marriage and was adamant that he did not want a divorce. Unfortunately for the Blurred Lines singer, Paula Patton had made her mind up and did not want to give the marriage another go. It now seems like they "insiders" are out in force to let the world know what happened.
The first insider told Us Weekly, "Robin wanted to save their marriage, but it was Paula's choice and she ended it. Robin does not want this divorce." Meanwhile, another supposed source added, "Robin was not blindsided -- he knew this was coming out. But he was committed to saving their marriage. He didn't want this." Finally a third source said, "She is done with the marriage, but he was definitely fighting to stay together until the last moment," another insider told Us. "It is still cordial between them, but they are now figuring things out."
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke were high school sweethearts and got married back in 2005. The couple have a three year old son named Julian together and they will do all that they can to make the split as easy on him as possible.
