After being separated since February, Paula Patton has filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Robin Thicke.

Patton filed papers in Los Angeles on Oct. 3, citing “irreconcilable differences” and asking for joint custody of their 4-year-old son, Julian Fuego.

The former couple were high school sweethearts and married in 2005. The separation first happened in February after months of infidelity rumors on Thicke’s behalf.

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the couple told PEOPLE in a statement on Feb. 24.

Following the announcement of the split, the “Blurred Lines” singer made multiple public apologies to Patton in an effort to win her back.

“For those of you who don’t know, my wife and I got separated a few days ago,” Thicke said to the audience during a concert in Virginia later in February. “But you know, I want everybody here to know that I’m trying to get my girl back.”

In late June, Thicke released an album”Paula” dedicated to his ex.
