The final time I learn something about Robin Thicke and his ex-wife Paula Patton, it was simply after Robin’s father, Alan Thicke, had handed away, and Paula made a degree of creating an announcement about her late and ex-father-in-law. I believed on the time that it was extremely good that Paula and Robin had been nonetheless in one another’s lives. Effectively, because it seems, all the pieces was a horrible mess behind the scenes. DCFS is at the moment investigating Robin after Robin and Paula’s son, Julian, claimed to high school officers that Robin had spanked him greater than as soon as. TMZ had particulars about all the pieces taking place:
Robin Thicke and ex-wife Paula Patton have been embroiled in a nasty custody combat over their 6-year-old son. It’s escalated to a Little one Companies case over alleged bodily abuse, and Robin simply scored a authorized victory. Sources aware of the case inform TMZ … Julian instructed college officers at first of the 12 months his dad had spanked him … greater than as soon as. The college reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Youngsters and Household Companies on January third, and the Dept. opened an investigation.
Paula then started denying Robin entry to their son, and filed an emergency order asking the household regulation choose to limit Robin’s contact with Julian to monitored daytime visits solely. In line with authorized docs Paula instructed Robin, “Julian is petrified of you.”
Paula says in her declaration, the day earlier than Julian instructed the varsity, he instructed her that Robin spanked him “actually exhausting.” He demonstrated and hit Paula on the again so exhausting she mentioned, “ow.” Julian then mentioned it was really worse than that. A faculty official additionally submitted a declaration saying Julian instructed her Robin incessantly “punches” him very exhausting.
Robin says in authorized docs, “On a really uncommon event and solely as a final resort, I’ll use gentle spanking, however it’s in line with the regulation — open hand on the butt. That is the kind of self-discipline to which Paula and I agreed throughout our marriage.”
There’s additionally a declaration from a nanny who claims she has seen Robin smoke marijuana on a number of events in entrance of Julian. And there’s this: Paula says at Julian’s kindergarten commencement final June, Robin confirmed up drunk at eight:30 AM and was “hooting and hollering and making inappropriate jokes” within the Catholic church.
Robin claims that is all about his choice to dam Paula from attending his dad Alan’s funeral final month. He says in docs, “Paula didn’t have a constructive relationship with my father and sometimes made detrimental feedback to me about my father. As such, she was not welcome at his funeral.”
Sources related to the case inform us there was a listening to Thursday morning and the choose denied Paula’s request to restrict Robin’s joint custody and likewise a request for drug testing. As for DCFS, we’re instructed social staff have interviewed Julian twice and likewise interviewed Paula. Robin is being interviewed Thursday afternoon. The DCFS case is ongoing.
It might not shock me in any respect if Robin Thicke was getting excessive in entrance of his son, nor wouldn’t it shock me if Robin was the type of man who confirmed up drunk to a kindergarten commencement at eight:30 am. As for the spanking and punching… it sounds horrific. Corporal punishment has been a hot-button parenting matter for many years, nevertheless it looks like up to now ten years or so, there’s been an actual motion in the direction of no bodily punishment in any way. It’s unusual to listen to about trendy dad and mom “agreeing” to even “gentle spanking.” And whereas TMZ is portray this as a victory for Robin (shock, TMZ loves douchebag males), it seems like Paula has all of her geese in a row, legally talking. She has witnesses and statements from college officers and nannies and such. Yikes.
