Paula Patton Files for Divorce from Robin Thicke: It Really Is Over, Man

by at .

Despite his best/most pathetic efforts, Robin Thicke has officially lost Paula Patton.

The actress has filed for divorce from the singer, approximately eight months after the couple announced its separation via joint statement. It read:

"We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

However, it took a very long time for Thicke to admit that his marriage was over.

He went on a public apology/pleading tour over the spring, often dedicating songs to Patton and openly telling his estranged wife that he missed her. It was sort of sweet and sort of creepy at the same time.

At the Billboard Music Awards, for example, Thicke debuted a song titled "Get Het Back." The artist did not specialize in subtlety. 

Alas, Thicke's efforts have gone for naught, as Patton cited "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce filing today and asked for joint custody of the couple's four-year old son.

There had been talk months ago that Thicke may have cheated on Patton, but the the divorce documents were filed in Los Angeles. That means that any alleged infidelity will play no role in the proceedings.
