Paula Patton Opens Up On Robin Thicke Split
Everything happens for a reason, says actress…
Paula Patton has been spilling the beans on her personal life after filing for divorce from Robin Thicke.
The 39-year-old actress, who was married to the singer-songwriter for eight years, spoke about her relationship break-up during a recent appearance on Good Morning America.
"I mean, the honest truth is it has been challenging, but it's been a year of growth ... learning about all new things," she told presenter Robin Roberts.
"But I've come out a bit stronger and my son's happy and I'm very - you know, I feel like everything happens for a reason. And then you have to move on and grow from there."
The actress, who starred in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, added: "It's so easy for all of us to focus on the negative things.
"But usually the positive in your life outweighs that. And you have to just be thankful for what you have right now. And that's what I try to work on."
The couple, who have a four-year-old son together, broke up in February 2014. At the time, they released a statement that read: "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."
