It’s been a rough year or so for Robin Thicke.
After scoring the biggest song of 2013 with “Blurred Lines,” his wife of almost a decade, actress Paula Patton, filed for divorce (among alleged cheating rumors). He then went on a “get her back” campaign, creepily naming his next album after her, each song a plea to take him back. The album had poor sales.
Along with that, he faced a copyright infringement lawsuit, which he lost. It was ruled by a jury he and Pharrell had to pay up millions of dollars from his biggest song “Blurred Lines” to the family of Marvin Gaye.
Now according to various reports, the divorce was officially granted to Patton on Tuesday (March 17) and takes effect on April 14. The couple had been together since they were teenagers, and married since 2007. They share 4-year-old son, Julian.
Earlier this month, Paula told GMA's Robin Roberts, "I mean, the honest truth is it has been challenging, but it's been a year of growth — lots of healing, learning about all new things. But, I've come out of it stronger, and my son's happy, and I'm very, you know, I feel like everything happens for a reason. And then you have to move on and grow from there."
Will Robin Thicke bounce back personally and professionally from all this?
