Another split: Paula Patton & Robin Thicke
If Miley Cyrus’ MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke hadn’t already caused enough trouble for everyone involved, we’ve just heard the event has resulted in more collateral damage! Apparently Robin Thicke’s wife, actress Paula Patton, felt “utterly disrespected” by Miley’s raunchy routine — so much so that the couple have been fighting constantly ever since and have now decided to separate. An insider suggests that Paula was “enraged” because she hadn’t been told what to expect in advance and though Miley improvised the ‘twerking’ without warning, Paula felt it was worse that her husband seemed so happy to play along. Accounts suggest that the 38-year-old actress had a huge argument with the ‘Blurred Lines’ singer following the show, saying the routine was insulting to her, particularly as it took place in front of a huge national TV audience.
With the VMAs drama at the centre of their rift — compounded by Robin’s insistence on continuing to party at clubs and frequently being pictured with various women — Paula and Thicke announced their separation after eight years of marriage earlier this week. The couple (who have a three-year-old son together) officially announced that their separation was mutual, but insiders say Robin “fought hard against the decision.” And so it seems one twerk too many may well break the camel’s back!
