Robin Thicke and his actress wife Paula Patton have separated after eight years of marriage.

The couple told People magazine: "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”

The split comes after months of rumors that Robin had been cheating on Patton. In August, he was spotted grabbing a female fan's butt in a Miami club and in January, he was photographed locking lips with an unknown woman at a Paris nightclub.

There is no word on divorce plans.

Robin and Paula have a 3-year-old son, Julian. They met when Robin was just 14.
