When news of Paula Patton and Robin Thicke‘s split first hit the web, I’m pretty sure everyone’s immediate reaction was “we can probably blame Miley Cyrus for this.” And oh, how we laughed at our shared little quip! Except according to TMZ, it turns out that actually was a major factor in their split, so … yeah. Don’t you hate it when jokes come true?
Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ … Paula Patton felt “utterly disrespected” when Robin virtually simulated sex with Miley the night of the VMAs. We’re told after the performance Paula got into a blow-out argument with Robin, telling him he insulted her before a huge national TV audience. What really pissed Paula off is that the performance was a total surprise. Miley improvised the raunchy part without warning, but Robin played along … and that enraged Paula. Sources say Paula went nuclear when she saw pictures surface of her hubby at one of the after-parties grabbing a woman’s ass … virtually digging inside.
Of course, it would be easy to place all the blame on Miley, and to be fair, she probably earned herself a slice: She twerked on a married man. Without consent. That’s not cool. On the other hand, I think the underlying issues is that they both just wanted different things and they couldn’t find a way to make it work. But that’s not funny, so let’s just blame it on the ass-less white girl who massaged his meatbone with her coccyx.
