The pair first met when Thicke was just 14 in 1991. They began dating a couple years later and have been together more than two decades.

Despite lewd performances, including Thicke's at last year's MTV VMAs with Miley Cyrus, and rumors of infidelity, Thicke continued to say in 2013 how strong their marriage was.

"I don't know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn't for Paula," he told Prestige Hong Kong Magazine last year. "She's been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her."
