Paula Patton filed for divorce from human pantyliner Robin Thicke more than two years ago, but things have recently gotten very messy between the two of them. I didn’t think it was possible for the situation between Paula and Robin to get worse than that awful album he made to try to win her back, but it has.
UsWeekly says that Robin and Paula are in the middle of a Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie moment. Robin is currently being investigated by the L.A. County Department of Child and Family Services for allegedly spanking his 6-year-old son Julian. Earlier this month, Julian allegedly told officials at his school that his daddy had spanked him more than once. The school called the DCFS, and they opened an investigation.
Paula reportedly responded to this news by denying Robin access to Julian, and filing an emergency order requesting that a judge limit his visits with their son. She has also requested that any daddy time visits be monitored.
TMZ says Paula has also accused Robin of some heavier things besides spanking. Paula claims in court documents that their son is “scared” of Robin. She alleges that some of those spankings have been more like punches. She also accuses Robin of showing up drunk to a morning event at Julian’s school, and claims a nanny has seen Robin smoke weed in front of his son.
According to court documents, Robin denies he did anything wrong. He claims that any spanking that happened was light, was limited to “open hand on the butt“, and was always used as a last resort. He also claims that he and Paula agreed to discipline Julian with spankings when they were still married. A source close to the situation tells UsWeekly that Paula might not get her custody wish. They claim a judge denied everything in her complaint, and that the DCFS doesn’t have any evidence of “wrongdoing.”
Robin is also accusing Paula of getting the courts involved as part of a revenge plot. Apparently Paula wasn’t invited to Alan Thicke’s funeral last month because she and Alan didn’t get along. Robin believes Paula is cutting off his access to Julian as payback.
“It is my belief that Paula holds residual anger towards me because I and my family would not permit her or her family to attend the funeral of my father on December 20, 2016. Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father…As such, she was not welcome at his funeral. It is my belief that Paula only wanted to attend because it would have resulted in additional public exposure for her.”
Attempted funeral fame whoring is an accusation straight out of a soap opera. Picturing Paula trying to cry while get papped in her veil almost made me forget for a second that Robin Thicke is being investigated for child abuse. I don’t know who Robin ripped off that diversion tactic from, but I’ve got to hand it to him, it worked on me.
