Once again, another Hollywood, California, marriage is ending in divorce. Sometimes, these marriages seem to be really strong and in the case of Robin Thicke and Paula Patton, the divorce caught a lot of people by surprise. After all, Thicke had written several Patton-inspired songs and has had some success with his recent album that was in her honor.
The couple, who have decided to end their nine-year marriage, are the parents of a 4-year-old little boy. The court will keep the young boy's best interests in mind while the divorce is in progress. Being a headliner definitely takes its toll on everyone, including the innocent children involved.
Both parents are involved in the boy's life and have come to terms with custody and spousal support as well.
The divorce, said to be final on April 14, was filed in Los Angeles in November 2013, by Paula Patton. This is a full six months after the papers were filed.
The two, Thicke and Patton, met in high school and things heated up for them pretty quickly.
Thicke has been very much public about his deep love for his wife, while Patton has been reticent about their relationship. Robin has tried his best to win back her love; however, the truth is that making it work under the spotlight of being famous can be terrifically difficult.
Thicke has told the national media that this year has been honestly challenging. He said it was a year of growth and also about learning new things. He said that he believes everything happens for a reason and his is to grow and move on to the next thing.
Divorce in Texas, as in Hollywood, is difficult. Can you imagine going through it while the nation reads about it over their morning coffee? It is important to remember that you can get on with the rest of your life from the point of divorce.
