Robin Thicke’s marriage to actress Paula Patton hit the rocks after the singer’s highly-lampooned VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus humiliated his wife who was in the audience, it has emerged.
According to sources close to the singer, Paula felt publicly humiliated after Robin dry-humped the addicted twerker and simulated sex with her on live television, even though it was not planned. In fact, the source says that Miley suddenly improvised the sexual antics right there on stage, and what pissed Paula off is that Robin played along with her.
Then after the performance, she and Robin had a heated argument, with the former telling him to his face that he insulted her in front of a huge TV audience.
And then when a photo of her husband groping another woman’s butt at one of the VMAs after-parties surfaced on the internet, Paula went nuts … and things have not been the same ever since.
On his part, Robin denies that the Miley Cyrus thing had anything to do with their split, telling TMZ that he is hell-bent on getting his wife back (video below).
As ENTmania! reported, Paula announced their split on Monday and she wants a divorce. Before the announcement, Robin cancelled his concert and flew to Canada – where she was filming – in a desperate, failed attempt to make her change her mind.
FYI: The VMAs performance also cost Miley Cyrus her engagement to Liam Hemsworth.
