It’s splitsville for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton, his wife of nine years.

People magazine reports that the couple issued this statement: “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”

Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, who met when Thicke was just 14, have a 3-year-old son, Julian.

One wonders if the breakup has anything to do with the pop singer’s plentiful sexy antics, including the “Blurred Lines” performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards with nymphet Miley Cyrus, headline maker for her twerking and use of a foam finger.

QUICK TAKES

CNN has canceled the prime-time talk show “Piers Morgan Live” due to lackluster ratings.

Michelle Obama teamed with Will Ferrell for a funny public-service announcement promoting her campaign for healthy lifestyle habits for children.

Neil Young has signed a deal for a book focusing on his passion for cars, while also featuring stories about his life in music.

Actor Sam Worthington was arrested in New York City on charges of punching a photographer after the man kicked Worthington’s girlfriend in the shin.
