Another celebrity relationship bites the dust. Singer Robin Thicke and actress Paula Patton, who first met as young teenagers, told PEOPLE they've called it quits.

"We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," the pair said in a statement.

The couple has not expressed the motivation behind the separation.

Earlier this year, however, the "Blurred Lines" singer was rumored to be cheating on his longtime love interest when he was spotted being intimate with another woman at a Parisian nightclub. Pictures of Thicke and the other woman at Club 79 first surfaced on the New York Daily News site.
