The couple released a joint statement reading, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time." Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, were high school sweethearts and are parents to four-year-old Julian Fuego.

Seth Meyers made his debut as the host of Late Night last night, opening the show riffing with his new band leader, fellow SNL alum Fred Armisen. Meyers' cold open was a Weekend Update-like monologue, featuring cute jokes like, "The brassiere turns 101 this week, and so does everyone who still calls it a 'brassiere.'" Meyers' first guest was Amy Poehler, who referred to the next guest, Vice President Joe Biden, as a "gorgeous charm monster." Biden hinted at his political future when Meyers asked him about his 2016 plans, joking, "I planned on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight's your night, so I'm hoping you'll invite me back." New York pop duo A Great Big World closed the show with their #1 hit "Say Something."
