Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s divorce

Thicke and actress Paula Patton divorced after 10 years of marriage. They were together a total of 21 years. Patton filed for divorce in 2014, citing irreconcilable differences. Patton and Thicke met when they were just teens. She once joked with E! News they met “100 years ago.” The high school sweethearts first met at a Hollywood dance club in 1991, when she was 15 and he was 14. Patton said Thicke asked her to dance “and the rest is history” reports E! News.

Robin tried to win Paula back

Thicke had a tough time accepting that things with Patton were coming to an end. In 2014, he made an album and named it Paula, hoping his effort would convince the love of his life to come back. Unfortunately, his attempts were in vain. Thicke later admitted he’s now embarrassed by the album. “What I thought was romantic was just embarrassing,” said Thicke in a 2015 interview with The New York Times.

Going public

Thicke and Geary made their first public appearance back in 2015 at the Cannes Film Festival. They first began dating a few months after Thicke’s separation from Patton. Many were talking about the couple’s 18-year age gap, and Geary wasn’t thrilled with the chatter. She took to Instagram to address her haters. “We’re out here living while most of y’all are still bothered by an age gap,” she wrote.
