Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have been fighting each other hard over the custody of their 6-year-old son Julian since January, but thankfully, it looks like their custody battle may be turning civil. I just checked my calendar to see if it was April 1st.
Robin and Paula were scheduled to face off in court yesterday, but that didn’t happen. Sources tell TMZ that Robin and Paula are very close to coming to an agreement on the custody situation for little Julian, and they’ve both decided to try something new, like acting like adults and trying to settle things. That’s a real departure from their original plan of action, which was dragging each other by the necks into a messy fight whenever even the smallest opportunity presented itself.
Robin has been accused of some pretty nasty stuff since this whole thing first started, like child abuse, wife abuse, a too-close relationship with his drug dealer, and wooing their social worker with sushi. Paula has been accused by Robin of going MIA for 10 days and conspiring against him with their visitation supervisor.
I hope for Julian’s sake that Robin and Paula actually play nice and close the lid on their custody hell as soon as possible. I also hope that one of their lawyers remembers to get their truce in writing. I know these two messes feed off the drama, and it’s only a matter of time before one of them says “screw it” and we’re back at square-awful again. While they’re at it, can one of those lawyers get Robin to sign a thing promising that once they settle this custody situation, he agrees not to release an embarrassing album about getting Julian back? Paula was cringey enough for one lifetime.
