We all remember watching the VMAs as Miley Cyrus twerked and touched Robin Thicke’s privates with a foam finger, thinking we’d be pissed if we were his wife.
There were reports Paula Patton confronted Miley backstage, but then Paula later acted fine with the incident.
Insiders reveal that VMA performance was the breaking point for Paula that paved the way for their split.
Patton wasn’t thrilled with the raunchy performance and sexual gestures, feeling disrespected by the sexualized performance in front of millions.
Paula got into a heated argument with her husband after the show, even confronting Miley Cyrus.
But Patton later laughed off the incident, after her husband begged and pleaded.
An insider said, “He asked her to help him out as a friend and a wife, and defend him and the performance, he begged her to speak out for him and be there for him. She agreed to be the good wife after he begged and pleaded.”
Robin Thicke was then photographed getting very handsy with socialite Lana Scolaro after the show.
The “Give It 2 U” singer downplayed any marital problems, stating they had “the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood”.
Robin attempted to talk Paula out of a divorce, but she has had enough.
On Wednesday, the 36-year-old reached out to his fans to let them know he appreciates them.
Robin took to his website writing, “I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days. My fans mean everything to me. I’m looking forward to getting back on out on the road and performing in Washington DC this Thursday, and the rest of the tour. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!”
