Paula Patton has filed for divorce from Robin Thicke and is asking for joint custody of their son.

The Precious and 2 Guns actress filed for divorce from the Blurred Lines and Give It 2 U crooner in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.

Patton, 38, and Thicke, 37, announced they were separating in February after nine years of marriage. They have a four-year-old son. Patton was the inspiration behind much of Thicke’s music and appeared in some of his videos.

His latest album, Paula, sold only 24,000 units in the US when it was released in July. His previous album, Blurred Lines, sold 177,000 units when it debuted last year.

Thicke had promoted his Paula album with several public appearances that were accompanied by reconciliation pleas.
