The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are another step closer to divorce.

The actress from "Precious" and "2 Guns" was granted a divorce Tuesday from the "Blurred Lines" singer in Los Angeles. Their legal split will go into effect April 14.

The 39-year-old actress and 38-year-old singer announced they were separating last year after nine years of marriage. They have a 4-year-old son.

Patton was the inspiration behind much of Thicke's music and appeared in some of his videos.

Thicke promoted his latest album, "Paula," last summer with several public appearances accompanied by reconciliation pleas.
