Robin, you’ve described your relationship with Paula Patton as “the greatest love of the century,” so you can’t let a silly photo get in the way of your marriage!
Paula Patton Is Staying Strong
You posed with a pretty blond fan, Lana Scolaro, with your hand grabbing her butt during a VMAs after party on Aug. 25, at 1Oak restaurant in NYC. The butt grab, which pulled Lana’s dress up slightly, was caught in a mirror behind you, and the photo was then posted.
Paula, 37, however, appears to be a very understanding wife — she was proudly watching your performance at the VMA’s and then was partying with you at 1Oak.
I suppose it helps that you’ve been dating Paula since you were 16. You’re now 36, so if anyone knows you — inside and out — it’s Paula.
The fact that she hasn’t freaked and hit the roof speaks to her own sense of self-esteem and the security she must feel in your relationship. She’s an accomplished actress in her own right. She just starred in this summer’s 2 Guns alongside Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg and James Marsden — an amazing Hollywood power trio.
She also happens to be one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Robin Thicke: Paula Patton Trusts You
Robin, I’m glad that Paula clearly trusts you and hasn’t felt the need to turn this fan butt grab into a serious relationship issue between you two.
That must be because you have made her feel very loved and secure during your 20 years together — good for you.
Paula isn’t about to let Lana Scolaro get in the way of a loving marriage and family. You and Paula have an adorable 3-year-old son, Julian, together.
In fact, the three of you were spotted happily playing on a beach in Miami shortly after the VMAs and butt grab incident.
Furthermore, the butt grab was a joke, a source close to the situation told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Robin and Lana both knew the mirror was there after taking another picture and he did it as a joke,” explains the source. “It was his version of bunny ears — it just looks worse than it really was. But there is no trouble with him and his wife and he isn’t cheating.”
Robin Thicke : It Could Have Been Much Worse
Nevertheless, despite all this, some women may have turned the butt grab into a World War III relationship issue.
I’m so glad Paula isn’t that type at all, Robin, and instead it’s wonderful that she’s thrilled for your “Blurred Lines” success.
In fact, she affectionately kissed you on the red carpet at your Blurred Lines album release party on Sept. 4 in NYC.
And you, Robin, have been full of praise for your wife in interviews, recently telling Prestige magazine: “I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way.”
Robin, you’re a lucky man for that and for the fact that she didn’t turn a silly butt grab prank with Lana Scolaro into grounds for a marital spilt. And Paula, you are one terrific soulmate and wife.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Would you have been angry or understanding if Robin was your husband?
