Paula Patton Spotted Smiling, Not Wearing Wedding Ring After Robin Thicke Split (VIDEO)

One of Paula Patton's fingers must be feeling lighter these days — she has taken off her wedding ring following her split with husband Robin Thicke.

Paparazzi snagged actress Paula arriving at Los Angeles International Airport on February 26 — snapping photos as the 38-year-old actress flashed a smile and revealed her diamond-free ring finger.

Having been filming the movie Warcraft in Vancouver of late, Paula is back in Tinseltown for the Film Independent Spirit Awards on February 29. We're sure she's not thrilled to be back in the eye of the media storm during this trying time!

Paula and her "Blurred Lines"-singing husband announced their separation on February 24, stating, "We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

Thus, they put the brakes on their nearly-nine-year marriage. Robin and Paula met as teens in 1991 and got married on June 11, 2005. On April 6, 2010, Paula gave birth to their son, Julian. Lately, they've been the subject of much gossip and scrutiny, especially in light of Robin's racy MTV Video Music Awards performance with Miley Cyrus.

It's sad to see this 23-year-relationship end, but hopefully the split will be a peaceful one.
