On Friday, we realized that Paula Patton and Robin Thicke have been embroiled in a really nasty custody battle for months now. It’s been undercover for some time, however every little thing appears to have exploded prior to now week or so. Paula’s facet says that Thicke is a drug person and that he’s been spanking and punching their son Julian. Thicke’s facet says Paula is making it up, coach Julian on what to say, and that she’s simply mad that she wasn’t invited to Alan Thicke’s funeral. The attorneys are concerned, college officers are witnesses, and therapists try to determine what occurred. Thus far, the decide hasn’t ended Thicke’s custodial rights, which meant that Robin was because of see his son final Thursday, solely Paula didn’t let Julian go to his dad’s home. So the cops have been known as and every little thing has simply gotten messier:
In the future after an L.A. decide rejected Paula Patton‘s request to restrict ex-husband Robin Thicke‘s joint custody of their 6-year-old son, Julian, the dispute between the previous couple is turning into more and more fraught. A consultant for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Division’s Misplaced Hills station confirms to PEOPLE that legislation enforcement officers have been dispatched to Patton’s Calabasas dwelling Friday morning after Julian didn’t arrive at college. He had missed his visitation with Thicke the night earlier than. The consultant referred to the incident as “a non-event” however stated “it concerned a baby not desirous to go along with somebody.”
Court docket paperwork obtained by PEOPLE present that Patton texted Thicke to inform him she was selecting up their son on Thursday, Jan. 5, regardless of it being Thicke’s custodial time. “Paula despatched somebody to highschool to intercept Julian, in violation of the custody orders,” Thicke’s lawyer, Angela Pierce di Donato, tells PEOPLE, including that “she didn’t return him to highschool at this time.”
Thicke’s lawyer says the singer is worried about Julian’s well-being. “Julian solely reveals any proof of emotional hurt when questioned by Paula or in her presence,” says Pierce di Donato. Counters a supply conversant in the scenario, “Julian has made it clear he doesn’t really feel protected in his father’s presence, a truth confirmed at this time by the Malibu Sheriff’s Division willpower — with Mr. Thicke current — that the kid wanted to stay together with his mom.”
The supply near the scenario responds: “It’s well-documented in courtroom declarations, not solely by the mom, however by two college officers in addition to the kid’s nanny, that there are allegations of abusive habits by Mr. Thicke. To be clear, it was concern by college officers, not Ms. Patton, that led DCFS to provoke their ongoing investigation into allegations of abuse by the daddy. Regardless of Mr. Thicke’s intent to smear her as a mom, Ms. Patton should do every little thing in her energy to guard her son.”
That Individuals article is de facto lengthy and detailed and options intensive feedback from Thicke’s lawyer, who mainly says again and again that Paula is teaching Julian and that Paula is in violation of their custodial settlement and that Paula is the one at fault right here. However I feel the quote about how the varsity triggered the DCFS investigation is de facto telling, proper? I dare say it’s a scenario akin to Angelina Jolie’s scenario – when a 3rd celebration initiated the DCFS investigation towards the daddy, the moms in each conditions are doing what they’ll to guard their kids and restrict their youngsters’ publicity to the daddy underneath investigation. Then once more, I feel it’s actually odd that the decide retains denying Paula’s requests to restrict Thicke’s entry to Julian, given the continued investigations into Thicke’s alleged conduct.
